Hotel Highland at Five Points South

Last year on our anniversary, Jared and I put a contract on our house. Seeing that an impending move and the spending of lots of money was in the near future, we scaled down the anniversary plans and decided to do a "staycation" in town for the night. Well, it turns out that's a pretty fabulous idea so we decided to repeat the idea:


We were booked to stay downtown at The Hotel Highland last night but life got in the way a little, so we'll be there next weekend. Still looking forward to it of course :) We might take a little trip later on in the fall but really, I'm thinking a little "staycation" is the way to go. 

I guest posted for A over at A.Co est. 1984 while she's on her honeymoon, so go check it out!

Staycations are the best. Me and the man do it too in Glasgow now and again. Perfect. Have an amazing time when you go!

Hope you had a great weekend!

A staycation sounds like a fabulous idea, also been planning to do the same thing this past summer but mine might have to wait until another season :) The hotel looks beautiful!

I thought a staycation meant you just stayed at home and did nothing? Regardless, that hotel looks awesome-I love the modern hotels! Also, happy anniversary!

We love staycations! Whether we stay at home or somewhere close by,staycations allow us to appreciate our own home and city when most folks are away

I love the idea of staycations! How many of us actually explore our own city? Looks so relaxing, and part of that relaxing is just leaving home and all of the things that need "doing." For some reason, I always sleep so much better in hotels! Could be that I'm away from the stress of my house and every project that's been put on the back burner.

Hope you had a great Anniversary weekend Katie!
