Merci's and Thank You's

Since I was old enough to open gifts, I have tried to be diligent about thank you note etiquette - a habit my mother inculcated in me from an early age when she would frantically try to write down names and gifts amidst the chaos of my birthday parties - I was then forced to write out thank you's.

Nowadays, emails and texts are as easily created as they are ignored and have helped make hand written notes all the more special when they appear in one's snail-mailbox.  Since the time spent with friends and family during the holidays has come to mean much more than gifts, this year in addition to my normal thank you's, I am showing my appreciation for loved ones by sending hand written notes and festive cards like these keep it from feeling like a chore.
