Tuesday Talk: Christmas Thank You Notes

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas break with your family!  Mine was lovely and I am happy to be home after soaking up the fun times with friends and family for over a week.  Now onto the important topic of thank you notes...

Y'all know that I love, love, love thank you notes!

They are at the top of my to do list the week after Christmas.  I used to write them on our flights back home after visiting family for Christmas.  Now I try to squeeze them in during nap times and in the evenings.  I try to write them for everyone who gives a gift or hosts a party I attend.  My husband includes his own note for his gifts on the same card and then I usually insert a hand drawn card from Olive.

I challenge you to send thank you notes 
to everyone that made your holiday 
a little BRIGHTER this year!!

I find the best thank you notes at Target, TJ Maxx, Marshalls and The Dollar Tree.  Occasionally, I will DIY some thank you notes on blank note cards.  My hope is that people feel loved and appreciated when a handwritten note arrives in their mailbox from us.  I'm also hoping that Olive will develop a thankful outlook on life early on and always look for ways to be thankful.

Here's our Christmas thank you note ideas for this year:

I'm going to go with something along the lines of these Kate Spade beauties

  2. Thank you notes are dying out in our society - I'm always glad to see people keeping it alive! :) My thank you's are done for this year. I buckled down and got them done before Christmas week was over!

  3. I sent thank you notes to all my little students who gave me sweet gifts this holiday season. I hope it cultivates in them the meaning of thank you cards. I also want to show them how grateful I am to be thought of. Thank you notes are a special but dying art that I think is important to keep alive.

  4. These notes are so cute - especially the last ones! I'm terrible at this because my handwriting is atrocious. But I shouldn't hide behind that excuse, I know. Excited to join you next year!

  5. This is such a nice idea! Saying thank-you is nice, but taking the time out to actually send out personalized cards just goes to show how much you really care.
