Love is in the Details

There are many things I am compulsive about, we all have quirks.
my list includes:
Leaving dishes in the sink is not in my nature, it's none or all.
I can't go to sleep fuzzies between my toes.
Needing to find a song I like before I start driving, even if it's just around the block.
Eating my daily banana between 11am and 11:30am.
You know totally normal things...

(my drive to work, Rascal Flatts on the radio)

But if there's one thing I am very compulsive about, it's Thank You Notes.
That's right folks, the snail mail kind.

Call me old fashion, a brown noser, or a creature of habit, but I send a thank you for almost EVERYTHING.

My Mom always forced required that I write a thank you for every gift, ever when  I was little.
Her torture eventually wore off on me, and through High School I found myself writing Thank You's for the small things.

 This isn't prom, but it's still a fabulous picture from high school  :)

Moms love Thank You notes for things like: dinners at their house, or hosting prom photos, etc.
This is when I had a epiphany: This Thank You Note habit MIGHT just be a good thing.

Now I am of the opinion that nothing says, "I really care," more than a hand written card.
It's like a little slice of you being hand delivered to someones door.

Target and Marshalls are the best place to pick up cute packs of cards.
I recently got three different sets...I might have a stationary collection.
No judging.

It's the personal touch of handwritten doodles, and a custom salutation, and that fact that someone (whether you saw them or not) had to hand delivered the note that makes snail mail so special.
I always like drawing swirls and hearts the most.
If you get snail nail from me, you know what I am talking about.

Any can send an email, but not everyone sends a card.
Love is in the Details.

I wish I could write you all Thank You Notes.
A Thank you for supporting me through the beginnings of my blog space.

But I'll leave you with this.
My Monday, an evening of Thank You Noting and Journaling to Friends.
