Thank You Notes, Long Walks & Fridays

Happy Friday Everyone!

I am so glad that it’s finally the weekend! I’m not sure why, but this week felt super long for some reason. Maybe it’s because all last week I was on vacation?

Lake Walk

Last night before dinner, Matteo and I had the urge to get outside and do something. I’ll admit that I haven’t been all that active this week, so I had the itch to get out there, and get moving. I was feeling slightly tired, so a run was not in order, but a nice 3.1 mile walk around the local lake sounded like a nice alternative.


It took us about 45 minutes, and despite all of the pesky bugs, we did feel refreshed after.

I felt bad for not taking Santo with us, but I had literally just fed him, and considering his tendency to get car sick, I was not about to upset the poor little guys digestion. Anyone else’s dog hate the car?


This morning’s breakfast was a cup of plan Chobani yogurt, with some ground flax-seed, almond halves, and pumpkin seeds mixed in.

It hit the spot as it always does! ;-)

Thank You Notes

Last night I was thrilled when I found this little envelope in my mailbox.

The people at Orange Leaf are so sweet and sent me a giftcard for some free fro-yo at my favorite place! Thank you notes are such small acts of kindness, that I think are often looked over too much. It takes about 5 seconds to write a nice little note expressing your gratitude for something, and it can make someone feel appreciated!

I try to remember to write thank you notes, but I’ll admit that sometimes it slips my mind. A lot of the times its just easier to send and e-mail, Facebook or Twitter message, but to me there is just something special about an old fashioned hand written thank you note! Thanks Orange Leaf for the giftcard and the thank you note! :)


Have a GREAT weekend!

How often do you write thank you notes?
