A #GirlBoss Weekend – Planning Your Perfect Girls’ Weekend

July 9, 2016

girlsweekendseaglassin The problem with being a #girlboss is that we lead crazy, hectic, fulfilling, demanding, stressful, and exciting lives. Whether you’re juggling work and school, putting in extra hours in the office, putting in extra hours outside of the office on a business venture or passion, raising kids, or some combination of these things, it isn’t easy keeping up with these unrelenting demands. But girl bosses are always up for the challenge, often sacrificing their own health and sanity to make it work. seaglassinncape Recently, I watched the movie The Intern (how could I resist an Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro joint appearance?) In the first half hour of this movie I was having major Devil Wears Prada feels. Anne Hathaway plays a badass CEO of a startup online retailer. She lives in a gorgeous NY brownstone and she’s a mom and wife on top of it all. Well…*spoiler alert* she’s also seriously burnt out.  I say all that to say this – there’s nothing wrong with trying to “have it all.” But prioritizing yourself, your happiness and well-being, is ultimately paramount. You can only give so much of yourself to your job or others before you literally run out, and that moment when you hit empty is often a jarring one. You eventually crash into the realization that you’re not physically or emotionally able to keep the juggling act going. So before you reach that place, stop whatever your doing and take some “me” time. And don’t feel guilty about it. You’ve earned this. seaglassinnbathroomseaglassinn
Hannah and I recently took a much needed girls’ weekend in beautiful Provincetown, where we stayed at the Seaglass Inn – a quaint hotel and resort just a short walk away from the city center or the ocean. After five years of school and new full time jobs we were so ready for a vacation. But we wanted to go somewhere that was both relaxing and had plenty of to do – so staying in Ptown was perfect. Our hotel had a gorgeous pool, complimentary breakfast, and a spa which definitely checked off the relaxation box. And the crisp white linens, dark wood furniture, and gorgeous bathroom (complete with my fave…subway tiles!) created a perfect oasis.

But perhaps what made Seaglass the perfect home away from home were the people. From Nadine, the owner, to Steve, the general manager, and Pat (a  fellow Patricia) we felt extremely welcomed and comfortable. Unlike being at a giant hotel you really feel an intimacy and homelike quality staying at an inn like Seaglass.
