It's been over a week since Luna's party and I'm finally done with all the thank you notes! With over 40 guests, we received so many thoughtful gifts and books and fun toys. And I want to make sure each person knows how much it meant to us!
It wasn't just about the gifts, either - it was the fact that so many people chose to spend their day celebrating Luna and all the goodness she brings to the world. Each person took the effort to be there or send their love and I wanted to return the favor!
If you're not a thank-you-note kind of person, that's okay! We all find our own ways to express gratitude and that's what's important. But here are three reasons why I think they should still be a thing:
1. IT SHOWS HOW MUCH IT REALLY MEANT.
You said thank you in the moment and that should be enough, right? Sure! But sending a card shows that you thought about it afterwards, too. Their gift or gesture or support meant the world to you and hasn't been forgotten.
2. IT COVERS ALL YOUR BASES.
Most people appreciate a thank you note - but some people expect it! Sending one ensures that everyone is satisfied, even the hard-to-please people in your life.
3. IT WILL PUT A SMILE ON SOMEONE'S FACE.
This is the real reason I send thank you notes. It's not just because it's nice or polite or because people expect it. It's because it feels good knowing I made someone's day a little brighter - just like they did for me!
What are your thoughts on thank you notes? Are they in or out? Is a text just as good? I want to know what you think in the comments!
