    Dear Emily,
    Hi! Hope everything is going well with you!
    Thank you for the lovely bracelets that you sent last week! I absolutely love them! Brown and red are two of my favorite colors to wear, and the bracelets go perfectly with practically everything in my wardrobe. I can hardly wait to wear them to school to show all of my students.
    I miss you so much and hope to see you soon!
    Yours truly,
    Mrs. Cannon

    Skip another line.
    Starting with a “Hi!” makes the letter sound conversational.

    The body of the letter tells her why I’m writing: to thank her for a gift.
