family vacation

The Land Of My People!

Both sides of my family are Italian; my Mother’s family is from Ischia — a small Island off the coast of Naples, and my Father’s family is from Calabria, the Southern most point of the country + just a hop skip and a jump away from Sicily. We’ve been to Ischia before [it’s stunning] + actually took a quick day trip so my Dad could see this time around, but we were really excited to spend a little time in Calabria + explore our roots!

Skaket Beach | Cape Cod 2015

I love nothing more than spending time with my family. I enjoy doing anything with them, but taking our annual summer vacation is my very favorite. This summer, we abandoned our beloved Jersey Shore for a week in Cape Cod.

While nothing will ever compare to the nostalgic Jersey beach towns, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Cape! Each place we visited was as adorable as the one before; but there was one location in particular that I could not get over — Skaket Beach.

We visited this bay beach three times during the week – twice during the day, and once at sunset. The water was warm, the views were incredible, and once the tide rolled out – you could walk for  what felt like miles (which we did).  I brought my phone along to snap some photos — I had one too many to Insta, so I I figured I’d share them here…

Enjoy!
