1) Friendly and helpful staff at hotels, restaurants, stores
2) Nicollet Mall is a great street to walk down, with lots of fun and beautiful things to see.
3) The SkyWalk is nice when it's suddenly hot and steamy and I'm not wearing as much sunscreen as I should be.
4) Having a fridge in both hotel rooms means I can bring home tasty leftovers and go to Kowalski's (grocery) for fruit and cheese and half and half.
5) Breakfast included at hotel #2 means I get to make myself a waffle in 6.5 hours.
Oops. I should probably get to sleep, so tomorrow I can include a gratitude statement about six hours of uninterrupted and comfortable sleep.
