I'm doing my part to bring back the lost art of writing thank you notes in my life. I'm guilty of having the best intentions of sending off a note vs an email, but then I forget or life gets in the way. One thing I am working on though, many times when I travel, I tuck thank you notes into my luggage. I do so just incase I have a need or desire to say thank you, especially if my host or hostess is not available at the time of my departure. Here, I brought along my Faber Castell fountain pen and Crane & Co. (a New England luxury brand) to the William Haskell house. Unfortunately I messed up my card and ended up leaving the note on a plain piece of paper, but it's the thought that counts ;-).
