I love this time of year dearly but it can also seem hard at times to stay on top of everything you’re working to accomplish before the year is over, isn’t it? My days have been a bit nutty and I feel like things are now just starting to slow down a little…just in time for me to pursue some R&R in Colorado with my family.
Last month during a particularly crazy week, I checked into The Roger to have a night away. I was planning to get more work done but after having a delicious meal at The Parlor, I headed back up to my room and decided to give myself the night off. What a treat it was!
I lit a mini candle, poured a glass of wine and started a new book in a large, luxurious bed with peace and quiet. It was glorious.
In the morning I used the room as a temporary office to have a change of scenery and by noon I was checked out and back home feeling recharged and re-inspired.
A few staycation tips:
- Request a quiet room with a lot of natural light when booking. I love opening all the shades in the morning to have sun pouring in as I begin to wipe the sleep out of my eyes.
- While a huge fan of room service, I also quite love having dinner in a hotel restaurant but then ordering dessert to bring up to bed to enjoy in my pjs!
- Upon checkin, ask that the hotel bring you the paper in the morning. I hardly ever read a hard copy newspaper anymore but love doing so in a hotel with a cup of coffee.
- Pack the comforts of home with you. We’re talking Netflix, magazines you haven’t had a chance to read, eye masks and a mini candle.
