Family vacations don’t happen as often past the age of 18. It’s a challenge trying to match up everyone’s hectic schedules. I was fortunate to go to Cape May this summer with my family and was reminded how valuable this time truly is. When I was younger I took this for granted but now that I’m older I cherish these opportunities and want to prioritize planning family time together. Below are some of my favorite moments captured while at the Cape which include the breathtaking water that was right outside our house, a beautiful garden in our backyard, a special moment between two of the people most dear to me, and an unexpected visitor from the pond.
