Thank You : A Minibook
I wanted to do something very special for my mom this Christmas. It was my last Christmas where we still shared a last name, and before she gave me away I wanted her to know how thankful I was.
I came up with the idea for a thank you book. I used thank you notes I had on hand (from the hundreds of wedding notes) and came up with this book. I should have taken photos of the inside, but I forgot. I used Love Elsie number stickers to count all 24 thank you's (years I've been alive). Some of them were simple like "Thank you for naming me Samantha" and others documented more personal stories between us.
My mom loved it and ended up taking it with her to Italy. It meant so much to be able to let her know how much I appreciate everything she's done to get me to where I am. I'm so thankful for her and Rob.
