My mom has always been a firm believer in thank-you notes after receiving any and every gift, which is a custom now firmly embedded in me, too. I see it only fit to pen a few thank-you notes to some people who have given me incredible gifts over the years — whether I can physically hold them or not. My life in Wilton is coming ever more quickly to a close, so why not take this opportunity to express gratitude to these loved ones in the most public way I know how?
Thank you, first, to my amazing family. Sometimes (arguably most of the time), I am the worst. But you have supported my craziest ideas and most creative ventures for the last 18 years. You’ve come to every play and choir concert, and encouraged me to pursue what I love. I am eternally grateful, and I don’t say it nearly as often as I should.
