• • • Here are a few ways to help you with your thank you notes in 2014 • • •   
  1. Keep a running list of thank you notes to compose right on your desk!  Every time a gift comes in, someone does something nice for you, or you attend a dinner party or play date, write it down on the list.  Every weekend, or once a week when it's convenient for you, take a few minutes to catch up on your list and write a note.  Cross it off and be done with it!  
  2. Always include specific details about why you appreciated the gift, how it makes your life better, more interesting, or more fun.  The more specific the better! 
Not writing a thank you note? If you are just sending happy mail, here are some tips: 
  1. Feel free to keep it short!  A few lines letting the person know you are thinking of them and why you are thinking about them will make them feel good.  The process doesn't have to be arduous for you! 
  2. Include some personal details about what you have been doing, or your family is up to to keep it interesting. 
  3. End by asking a question.  This may prompt the recipient to write back and become a "pen pal!"
