About the Book

This is cute.

It’s not the sort of book I’d usually bother with but I like the idea of writing more notes to my friends. In this age of technology, there’s something pretty ditsy about receiving handwritten thank yous.

That’s where this book comes in.

Packed full of templates and ideas to use for any occasion, you’ll never be lost for words again.

Here are some of my favourite passages…


Favourite Passages:

  • “When a coworker was ill with the flu, one woman wrote, ‘I wish you chicken soup, matzo balls, hot tea with honey’ – all the symbols of nurturing she could think of.” Chapter 2: Express Yourself


  • “Dear Mom, I appreciate all the things you’ve done for me all year long – the books you told me to read that changed my life, the favours that took time, the nights and weekends you babysat, putting your life ‘on hold.'” Chapter 4: Birthdays


  • “Your birthday is carefully penciled in on my calendar. The problem is, I forgot to look at the calendar.” Chapter 4: Birthdays


  • “One note read, ‘I was thinking about you today and the fact you’re somebody who brings joy to my life. I treasure your capacity for optimism (which is infectious), your understanding, and your ability to slice to the heart of the matter. The truth is, I’ve never met anyone like you. A friend like you is rare and precious.'” Chapter 15: More Reasons to Write a Note


Star Rating:


Not exactly ground-breaking but it’s a cute read and easy to flick through to find ideas for writing your notes. Well worth a look.
