After being out of town for 10 days, we had an extremely large pile of mail to go through. What do you open first?
Anything personally addressed and handwritten, of course!
I was delighted to find a thank you note from my friend Emily regarding her and her husband Clay's recent visit to our new home. Having visitors helped me see all the positive aspects of where we live and gave me a glimpse into the future as we hope to host more and more friends and family here.
In Emily's thank you note, she included a few pictures from their visit:
This one is hysterical!
I think it is a great picture of the guys, but...
who is the crazy lady watering the plants in the background?
Tip for mom: send pictures in your thank you notes. For a child's birthday party, a picture of your child enjoying the present would be great. Or how about a picture of the party guest?
Thanks, Em! And if you haven't stopped by Emily's blog to experience her experiment into the life of a 50s housewife, go there today! She is a published author AND an incredible writer!
