I sent an email this morning to someone, asking a question about and upcoming event. I ended my email with "Thank you" in appreciation. I would say that when I communicate with people I make them feel comfortable and I like to be empathetic and compassionate.
Her reply was straight to the point, dry even. Especially when emailing stuff like that comes across roughly, but I feel like she could have been a little more inviting. (In real life conversations, she's very friendly/warm)
I almost feel like it was a burden for her to convey information to me, because she said if I had looked later on in the calendar I would have saw the event. (I didn't even think to look because in years past it's been the same time every year).
What are your thoughts?

I think that sometimes when texting and emailing things get lost in the translation. If she is a person that you are friends with and she is nice normally then I would not think anything of it. I might think she was having a bad day or I would just let it go.
I understand what you are saying although I think that sometimes we just have to take emails with a grain of salt because the person sending might not realize that she even offended you.
