You want to say "thank you" in a very big way. One more chance for everyone to remember the way he tenderly rested his head on your shoulder, held your face in his hands. Moments. I love these wedding thank you postcards because those magical moments in time can be collected into a lovely keepsake collage. How soon to write those thank you notes? Usually within a month from the time you receive a gift. Let them know, "Our new Hamilton Beach Quesadilla Maker is just what we wanted since we both love Mexican food." And remember to pace yourself, because writing thoughtful words should be a joy, not a job. Give family and friends and your old soccer coach, one more sweet moment to know how grateful you really are.
