Hello from the air! (Again) I’m traveling to Philadelphia this weekend for BFF Lauren’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 – it was tucked away to the side so you’d only see it by chance, neatly lined up with the counter. A big, broad smile spread across my face – 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, don’t fret – 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 news… 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. I’ve decided that edamame are one of the best portable snacks – it’s hard to find a portable green vegetable that you actually WANT to eat. But salty edamame is perfect!
What’s the nicest thing a stranger or acquaintance has ever done for you? Have you ever found an Operation Beautiful note?
