All You Need Is One
Cape Cod is a beloved summer destination to many. What’s not to love?...the pristine beaches, the seafood, and the people. Given the influx of summer visitors one might see it as a transient corner of the world but in fact, it’s the place I feel most connected to the community. To date, my journey has presented the opportunity to live and travel worldwide but it was not until I found my community here on Cape Cod did I feel I belonged to something beautiful. Moving to Cape Cod also coincided with a deep dive into my yoga practice a little more than four years ago. I believe that yoga is powerful in fact magical. Some of the many ways in which I’ve experienced that magic includes spontaneous dance parties, holding hands, crying when you don’t know why, and bursting out into laughter. Even if you don’t know anyone in class the simple act of breathing together and creating an energy with movement in synch is pure simple perfection.
When you then take this simple idea but everyone in the group that has gathered is connected by one common thread, love for one person, it’s a whole other level. This past weekend I was honored to be a part of a very special Cape Cod bachelorette weekend for Tara and her bride tribe. Included in the girl’s weekend Tara’s tribe gifted each other a private yoga class led by yours truly (blushing). In the warmth of the living room we rolled out 10 yoga mats and flowed together for a class filled with breath, stillness, giggles, grace, and great music - followed by a very fun champagne bubbly bar. To complete this girl’s afternoon post-class, I hosted a flight of three champagne cocktails to continue the celebration of love. One was paired with a lovely cold pressed juice, the flavor was Harvest from The Local Juice...a match made in heaven!
Hanging around the girls this weekend got me thinking about some of my favorite things to do here on the Cape. Whether you’re planning a bachelorette party, a girl’s weekend, or dream wedding I think you will enjoy a few of my favorite stops. A day in the sun, sand, and surf at Wellfleet Cahoon Hollow Beach is pretty epic, followed by a Goombay Smash and dozen oysters at The Beachcomber of course. Provincetown is going to give you street wondering, live music, and of course a tea party. The best kind of party! You can be sure there will be a great DJ, dancing, and as much fun as you can stand! Provincetown is known for a daily “Tea Party” hosted at the Boat Slip when that party wraps just next door and down the boardwalk starts “After Tea”. Complete with a dance floor overlooking beautiful Provincetown harbor The Pied Bar has all your dancing needs. “After Tea” is hosted daily starting at 6:30 with a live DJ spinning great music and no cover. This is a dance floor not to be missed!
In addition to teaching yoga, selling corporate events, and bartending on occasion I am true to the core a hostess. I have a passion for planning parties but for many, it’s a daunting task and something you might want to maybe, as a dear friend says, “throw a little money at it” in order to make it happen. If that is the case I’ve got you too.
