The Princess and The Prosthetic

Our Favorite Boutique Hotel in ATX

One of the things that James and I try to do at least 4 times a year is a mini get away!  It’s so important to us to schedule time together to recharge, reconnect, and relax together.  It’s one of the keys to the success of our relationship!  Our favorite place to go is The Hotel Van Zandt in Austin!

The staff is incredible.  They always find someway to personalize each of our stays and take such good care of us while we are their guests!

Hotel Van Zandt ATX

We always stay in the same suite each time we go!  It’s a little tradition we like to do and I’m not sure how they pull it off but we’ve never stayed in another room!  It’s always been “our” room each time!  This picture was from our suite the last time we went–just a STUNNING view overlooking the river!

The hotel is stunning–a very ecclectic vibe that just embodies Austin culture.  From being dog friendly to the Willie Nelson artwork and trumpet sculpture in the lobby, the hotel is gorgeous!

They have an amazing coffee shop in the hotel called Cafe 605 that has AMAZING coffee you can grab on your way out to explore Austin or you can sit in the cafe and indulge in some yummy treats!  We also love eating brunch on Sundays at Geraldine’s while listening to the live music!  And drinks by the pool deck are a must in the summer!

We really use the weekend away to relax and reconnect.  Our lives are so crazy busy! Between two full time stressful careers, my writing, Callie’s schedule and medical needs, sometimes there is nothing nicer than to go away with each other and just “be.”  We order room service, binge watch movies, go eat at fun new restaurants, get massages, and recharge our batteries.  We come back home better partners, better parents, and better people by taking those breaks!

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
