Hello from the air! (Again) Iâ€™m traveling to Philadelphia this weekend for BFF Laurenâ€™s goodbye party. She is moving to Singapore for work for THREE YEARS so my college friends are all getting together for one last hurrah.
After going through security, I stopped by Starbucks for some iced coffee. As I was placing my order, I looked down at the countertop and found this:
Someone had intentionally left this Chinese fortune right near the packets of nuts â€“ it was tucked away to the side so youâ€™d only see it by chance, neatly lined up with the counter. A big, broad smile spread across my face â€“ it was kind of like finding an Operation Beautiful note! It was just so cool to think that someone had intentionally left it there for a stranger to find. I loved imaging who left it and why, what they were thinking about and hoping would come their way soon.
I was so surprised that I took the note with me, which I know happens a lot with Operation Beautiful notes (if you post one and it disappears, donâ€™t fret â€“ sometimes people take them and save them in their wallet). I immediately regretted moving the note so then I left it on the arm of a chair:
I lined it up perfectly so someone would know it was left there intentionally. 🙂 It was such a nice feeling to find a little message from a stranger! It definitely made my morning.
In other newsâ€¦ I actually planned ahead for this trip and packed my lunch.
A Dakota bread sammie with almond buttah:
Two little Clementines:
And steamed and salted edamame. Iâ€™ve decided that edamame are one of the best portable snacks â€“ itâ€™s hard to find a portable green vegetable that you actually WANT to eat. But salty edamame is perfect!
Whatâ€™s the nicest thing a stranger or acquaintance has ever done for you? Have you ever found an Operation Beautiful note?
