We attended a fabulous dinner party New Year's Eve; there were eight of us and the food was excellent and conversation lively. My friend went to a lot of work in the preparation of the six courses she served and afterwards, the entire evening left a warm feeling.
I wanted to show our appreciation for being invited so of course took a hostess gift and we thanked our friends for having us as we left. Thinking about the evening, I felt a little something more would be a nice touch to say thanks and searched for the perfect card amongst my writing materials.
We're both avid gardeners and this pretty note card and envelope seemed to be ideal to write a short note.
Back before computers, I wrote many cards of thanks and letters to friends; it was the proper thing to do and I grew up doing it. Letter writing, or even mailing cards seems to be falling by the wayside and yet we all know that special feeling of receiving something in the mail.
I hope you'll join me in keeping card and letter writing alive. Think of someone that would love to hear from you and send them a short note. I guarantee when it is received, they'll be delighted you thought of them.
