Thank You Notes Vol. 8 (Plus a $130 Giveaway)

I posted this on Instagram yesterday and it just made me so happy. I'm not a huge fan of overly staged photos and I realize that this looks like one, but it's what was sitting on the corner of my desk yesterday. We are finalizing our Iceland plans for May, starting baseball season and our whole apartment smells like spring with that candle. I turn 30 exactly one month from today and I'm so excited.

Since it's Friday and my mind is bouncing all over the place, I'm going to follow Jimmy Fallon's example and write a few thank you cards.

Thank you Spring for bringing back cold weather and helping me prepare for our upcoming Iceland trip. But really, please be sunny this weekend because I want to play outside all weekend.

Thank you New York sports teams for keeping my life exciting. The Amazing Mets are the greatest team in baseball this year so far and the subway series kicks off this weekend. Also, the Rangers. I just love them so much. And I love playoff season.

Thank you BYOB restaurants. It makes dinner so much cheaper and we can choose whatever wine we want and drink 3 glasses each for the price of one.

Thank you Kaelene @ Unlocking Kiki for giving me nonstop Iceland inspiration and for answering some of my ridiculous questions. I may have stalked every single one of your Iceland posts over the last few weeks and I'm not sorry about it.

Thank you Minnesota for saving the snow for after we left town. I don't think I could handle it and if there's anyway I'm ever moving back, that can't happen. Also, I appreciate your bloody mary skills.

Thank you Library card for keeping me stocked with books to read. It's helped keep the TV off and saved my Amazon account a ton of money. How did I not get a card the second I moved out here? I can get all my magazines online through them too. It's just a good business decision. Like 2 for 1 drinks.

Thank you Cherry Blossoms, Brunch, NY Green Expo and Hockey for sponsoring this weekend. Please be sunny and beautiful. I'm begging you.
