It seems everything these days has gone digital. Which I personally love: less paperwork = less clutter. Even modern etiquette on sending a personal or professional thank you note has changed. To each his own. But for me, my mom taught me there is simply no substitute for a handwritten thank you note. On that note pun intended, our neighbor recently stopped by to invite our family over for dinner. We happily accepted. But after the holiday madness my stock of hostess gifts was gone like Kris Kringle - and with dinner only an hour away I was out of options. GASP!!! Anyone who knows me understands that this is a major crisis in my world. So I decided to turn up the volume on my thank you note and hand delivered a package of homemade chocolate chip cookies a couple days later to personally thank them for a great evening.
I recently discovered the most AHHHHH-mazing brown butter fleur de sel chocolate chip cookie recipe at The Ambitious Kitchen. You MUST try this recipe. The cookies are perfection - sweet and salty and the prefect amount of gooeyness. YUM! I hope they enjoyed the cookies as much as I loved eating the leftover cookie batter!
I picked up some cookies bags at Michael's and used my favorite navy ribbon to attach our thank you note. I also hand wrote a little message on the back.
How do you acknowledge appreciation when you're the recipient of someone else's kindness?
