Friday's Letters & Friday's Fancies Week #10: Pretty In Pastels

You may ask two link-ups this week on the same day!  Why YES!  For the last 10 weeks I have really enjoyed Friday's Fancies, but I've recently come across a few blogs with Friday's Letters!   At first I pondered leaving Friday's Fancies for awhile, but thought NO I really like using my creative magic so I'll just do both!  Friday's are now that much better!

Friday's Letters
Dear Jesus, I love mind likes to wander, draw me near again...  Dear Spring, Please keep your wonderful weather around, but you can get rid of your nasty pollen because I cannot breath.  Dear Pollen, GO AWAY!  I want to play outside again!  Dear Internal Revenue Service, Yes I'm spelling you out as you severely aggravated me Thursday morning due to a 20 minute wait time and 10 minutes of you making me feel stupid.  Thanks for nothing.  Dear Work Manager, Thank you for being a CPA and providing me with insightful tax information to give me what the IRS did not.  Dear Cary Road Race, please don't cause me extreme anxiety Saturday morning, I've ran over 200 miles in the last 4 months no reason for stress over a measly 6.2 mile run...  Dear Mom, I obviously thank you for many things, but especially this week while you use your crafty hands to sew me some new skirts!    Dear Norman & Contessa, thank you for being cute and cuddly during the cold nights this week.  Dear Husband, I save you for last because I love you the mostest (after Jesus of course).  I love you...  


Friday's Fancies
This week's Friday's Fancies inspiration is pastels!  I don't know about you, but I've been obsessing over the mass hysteria of pastels this Spring.  From buttery yellows to robin egg blue they are rockin' this years color palette!  I think the two most admired colors are the mint green and peach (coral) tones.  I'm with the majority on this one, they are my favorites too!
