Your husband cooked and did the dishes.
Your hairdresser didn’t charge you for a much-needed eyebrow wax (yikes!)
Your coworker stayed late so you didn’t have to.
Your favorite barista threw in an extra shot of espresso to your already ridiculous coffee order.
So many situations call for a thank you. Most of us say it right on the spot. But how much more meaningful when that awesome person gets a handwritten note from you, the person with no time to cook, an ever-growing unibrow, an appointment right at 5:00pm, and serious dark-circles under your eyes?
My grandmother, the real Miss Wyolene, has always stressed to me the importance of conveying thanks: when I receive a gift, when someone goes out of their way to do me a favor, and especially for folks extending everyday kindnesses. It only made sense that the very first line of greeting cards I created for the brand that bears her name be a set of thank you notes.
And thank you for reading!
