Before the Snow: Cape May in the Winter

This post is bit delayed but as I was going through my photos from my recent trip to Key West, I noticed I never posted a bunch of photos from around the Holidays. I was down in Cape May for two weeks after Christmas and was lucky enough to experience some clear coastal winter weather. No snow, just crisp cool temps and clear skies that were perfect for exploring the coast and heading into the pubs for a beer or two (or three) to warm up. I think I even snuck in a run along the beach on a particularly windless day.

People who are unfamiliar with year-round Cape May often ask me “What do you do there in the winter?” or “Isn’t it DEAD?”

Well, yes it’s quiet but many businesses are still open at least a few days a week and the picturesque landscape never leaves. Honestly, escaping to Cape May in off-season is way more relaxing than escaping there in the summer. Less people equals more space to soak in the serene nature.

It was a long week. Just looking at these images of the deep ocean blue are soothing my mind. Luckily, tomorrow I can see a big beautiful body of water in person. The ocean reminds me that there are larger things in life than you, than I or even the entire world’s problems combined and there is no way to control any of it. Let it go, let it go.

Philadelphia and Cape May

I’m baaaaaacccccccccck!

Where have I’ve been? Well. Well. Wellllllll….I am no longer a Boston resident, and I don’t work in technology for my day-time gig. I now live in Philadelphia, work in fashion/retail marketing and get to spend pretty much any weekend I want in the coastal town of Cape May. Life is good. Life is great!

I got all wrapped up in moving, adjusting to my new home, being closer to family and friends that I hadn’t seen in a while and just taking in all the awesome positive changes that I didn’t make time to blog. It’s been about 3 months, things are starting to get back in a routine and my mind is craving a creative writing outlet again.

So, I’m back! I want to continue to blog about all the things I love- coastal living and style, travel, food and life. I’m feeling more inspired in this city of brotherly love and with my almost weekly trips to some salt water– I’m excited to share this inspiration with you all! (Ut OH, already acquiring Philly lingo….you all)
