OH jeez! I'm going to try to spare you my rant about how November 1st (let alone October 22nd) is
NOT THE BEGINNING OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON!
I personally consider the week of Thanksgiving the "beginning of the Christmas season".
And no, I'm not going to admit that I already bought a 3,483 square foot roll of double sided wrapping paper at Costco...
No, its November so that means its, time to give Thanks! This year, being clever, or having stolen an idea from some magazine or blog, I'm going to write Thank You notes to people that I'm thankful for.
I figure a personalized note is much more genuine than the "What I'm Thankful For This Year" round table, listening to your family, while salivating over a pile of mashed potatoes and turkey.
I'm currently compiling a list of friends and family to whom I wish to write. I'm normally not very good at expressing emotions verbally, so I'm hoping I can get all kinds of heartfelt and sappy (see? sarcasm comes out YET AGAIN, dammit) in a note.
I thought this was a very cute idea, and am excited to get down writing a few.
Feel free to steal this idea! I love it. Kinda reminds me of the Golden Girls "Thank You For Being A Friend...."
