While B was out of town I sat on the couch with my colored Sharpies - the four that are left, anyway - and decorated 50 envelopes, each with a Hershey's chocolate bar and a thank you note inside. (Feather Nester - does this remind you of those damn Peer Counseling bags junior year? All 300 of them?!?!)
Anyway, I've learned from people smarter than me that if something really matters and you want it done right, and you want people to go out of their way for you, you have to make them feel appreciated. I think it's the nature of life that everyone feels underpaid and underappreciated, but no where is that more true than the service industry.
So I made 50 thank you notes for our wedding coordinator to distribute to all of the staff that will be working from Thursday - Saturday to help with our wedding. That's all I have to show you for now... I doubt the pictures of my completed thank you notes would be quite as riveting.
