Thank You, Guy Trebay

11 Apr

This week I came across a story in the New York Times called “The Found Art of Thank-You Notes” by Guy Trebay.  It was such a great article that I shared it through twitter and with some of my friends. Mr. Trebay really captured the way I personally feel about handwritten thank you notes.  In a world full of emails and texts, it is a lot easier to send a quick “thank you” message, but when you take a moment to hand write a thank you note, it truly stands out.

I was so happy to hear that the art of writing thank you notes is making a comeback.  Maybe in this digital age people are yearning for something that feels more authentic.  Handwriting truly expresses your personality where an emoticon, while fun and whimsical, can’t truly replace the emotions evoked by receiving a handwritten note.

Thank you, Mr. Trebay, for your timely and well written article.  Maybe I should write a handwritten thank you note?

A symbol of hospitality, the pineapple was once considered quite the commodity. Had you been a 15th century European king, surely many were delivered to your castle. We like to think they still do — in the form of a thoughtful note to the gracious hostess or new neighbor.

Jimmy Fallon will soon be taking over on The Tonight Show.  I can’t wait to tune in!  And can you guess what my favorite thing about Jimmy Fallon is?  The fact that he writes thank you notes, of course!  I love Thank You Note Friday and that he writes handwritten thank you notes.  Has he inspired you to write  a handwritten thank you note?

Looking forward to seeing him on The Tonight Show!
