Well, wasn't I surprised when we sat down to write our notes and Marc not only wrote more than the ones on his list, he demonstrated an amazing talent for writing them!
Our writing styles are very different. It takes me 30-60 minutes to write a thank you note. I feel like being succinct requires a bit of thought. One can't really ramble in a thank you note, which you may have noticed is a habit of mine. Marc can write a heartfelt, personal, and amusing (when appropriate) note in a fraction of the time I take.
"...thank you for the beautiful trivet designed by Michael Aram. Jeannine is looking forward to using it and I am looking forward to learning what a trivet is. You'll have to come over and join us for dinner to see it in action!"Another one reads:
“I didn’t know we needed a ___(gift)___, but Mrs. Mink assures me we did and that it’s lovely.”As I read Marc's notes, I started to feel sorry for the guests who were on my part of the list!
How did you tackle writing thank you notes? Did you divide your list or did one of you write more notes than the other?
