Back in November, Michael and I made our annual trip out to the East Coast to visit my mother’s side of the family. I don’t have any family besides Michael’s family in Washington, so I always look forward to seeing my family in Delaware this time of year. This trip coincided with our first wedding anniversary and we shared a little bit about our anniversary last month in this blog post.
When we come to visit, this is usually one of our only opportunities to relax like we’re on “vacation.” We try to spend as much time with my mom, aunt, uncle, and cousin as we can and I’m so thankful that we brought one of our cameras to take photos with everyone.
East Coast Trip 2019
Our trip started out with spending time with my mom. I always like to visit Dover although there isn’t much to do besides go to one of the few restaurants. Dover is one of those quaint little towns with thin, cobblestone and brick roads and I absolutely adore visiting. Back when I was in first or second grade, I lived in Dover and remember running around and exploring with my brother. That’s probably one of the reasons that I try to visit Dover every time I’m in Delaware.
Afterwards, Michael, my mom, and I drive out to the coast to visit one of Delaware’s beaches: Rehoboth Beach. Rehoboth Beach is one of those places that I am always wanting to visit despite it being cold and windy this time of year because I love looking in all of the little shops. We didn’t stay for too long, but I got to walk along the beach and pick out my favorite shell, then we stopped for fish and chips for lunch!
After spending time with my mom, Michael and I went to spend the second part of our trip with my aunt, uncle, and cousin. I cherish the moments where we all get to relax, share meals, and spend quality time together. I find my family to be hilarious and extremely loving. They are my favorite people to be around! I’m happy that we carved out some time for Michael to take some goofy family photos for us. We also snapped some pictures of Punkin, my family’s little dog, who has been sick.
Toward the end of our time in Delaware, Michael and I rented a car (for the first time) and made the two hour drive to New York City for photos that we planned with Hannah Way Photography who is located in Dallas, Texas. We agreed to meet on the Brooklyn Bridge for sunrise photos and despite the cold, we were thankful for the early morning to beat the crowds! Here are some of our favorites from that time together 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by the SP Blog to read a little bit about our low-key trip to the East Coast!
