I invited Lowell and Courtney to join us as a surprise treat for Boy, since we both enjoy their company, and I thought that they would appreciate meeting Gail and joining us at one of her classes. We had a lovely time with Lowell and Courtney that evening, and they hit it off with Gail as well, with whom they share a love of cooking and contemporary art.
Shortly after attending the class we received a thank-you note written by Lowell that stands out, in my mind, as exemplifying the craft of such missives, and which I am sharing with you, Gentle Reader, as an example of that which to aspire to when writing such communiqués.
So what is so noteworthy (pun intended) of this note?
- It appeared in our mailbox within days of the associated event;
- It was handwritten on heavy, handsome card stock;
- It was cleverly written and appropriately flattering to the recipients;
- It was amusing; and
- It was short and to the point.
This is not the first time that Lowell and Courtney have been referred to on Reggie Darling; you can read more about them in a post I did here.
