Matt and I received this adorable handwritten note in the mail from William, our nephew who is almost 5. We sent him the "Angry Birds" board game, the physical manifestation of the extremely popular iPhone game. As I have mentioned prior, William and his parents live in Budapest, Hungary, so we didn't get to actually see him at Christmas. (We did see him open his present on Facetime though!)
I just love that his awesome mother Cindy, took the time to sit down with William to do this. I know that in this day of e-mail, Facebook, text messaging, etc., that there are many faster, more convenient ways to say "thank you", but I still think that the handwritten has it's place. It's so nice to find something personal in the mail, amidst a sea of bills.
I keep a box of note cards with a book of stamps in my office at all times. That way I have no excuses but to write a quick note and send it off. I also include a little handwritten note with every Etsy order I send off. I think customers like that personal touch.
So why not make someone's day and send them a handwritten note?
Ta-ta for now.
