‘Tis the Season to be Thankful!

Pssst! Ri again. So, it’s Christmas night. OMG, I am exhausted. My kid is three – that ALONE should be enough explanation, but add in the fact that my Mother in Law arrived from Texas today, I cooked both a Turkey AND a Standing Rib Roast (complete with Yorkshire Pudding) simultaneously for dinner and I have slept a total of six hours total in two nights and…well.

I’ve got no posts in me right now.

Thank cheeses that Melisa from Suburban Scrawl loves me – she’s filling in today with a VERY timely Holiday post. I heart her. :)  And,  um…the Thank You Note is in the mail.  😉

Take it away, “One S”!

Now that the holidays are over, you’ve got a bunch of new goodies to play with and your recycling bin is overflowing with crumpled-up wrapping paper. What to do now? Be thankful, of course!

Today, December 26, is National Thank You Note Day. In this day and age when it’s easy to shoot off a quick e-mail or text message, it’s more important than ever to slow down and really let people know that you appreciate the time and effort they took when providing a service for or giving a gift to you. As you write your thank you notes today (by hand, please: NOT on the computer!), listen to this handy-dandy playlist for inspiration.

Take special note of the final song: it’s one of my favorites.

Happy writing!! (and by the way, thanks for reading!)

    Loving the thankful list! Led Zeppelin’s “Thank You” would fit right in, too. I had no idea it was Thank You Note Day! I have many I should be writing.

    Ri, this is slightly OT, but where did you find your tweet option that lets you retweet from the post? I like that :)

    The penguin note is so cute ^.^ Though, for holidays sake, being the fan that I am, I’d have to listen to “Yule Shoot Your Eye Out” by Fall Out Boy while writing the notes. It just seems fitting for the holidays for me. ^^;
