I know this won't apply to the majority of you, but I have to say it. GO PHILLIES! Hey, my home team won a championship, and even though I'm honestly just happy to see the baseball season come to an end (yay, I get control of the tv until April!), it's pretty cool to see this city so excited about something! So way to go! Looking forward to the big parade tomorrow, which happens to start about two blocks from my office. Sweet!
Okay all, it's Thursday, and you know what that means. Giveaway time!! A few weeks ago, I was contacted by TracyLynn of three heart photography & design. She generously offered to design some cards, inspired by Operation NICE, and present them as a giveaway. How sweet is that?
Then she sends me a photo, and they are gorgeous! The giveaway is for a set of 15 cards and envelopes, printed on 30& recycled eco-white paper. The back reads, "Being nice is one of the many bridges on the road to Happiness."
Thank you so much, TracyLynn!! If you'd like to win this special pack of note cards, designed by TracyLynn specifically for Operation NICE, just enter a comment. Again, if you have any stories of nice, I'd love to hear them! Otherwise, a friendly hello is sufficient! Contest ends at 8PM on Thursday, November 6th.
But I actually have a little story I wanted to share about some kindness I witnessed.
I mentioned in my Love List that I miss my old Starbucks. I went there every morning for about 7 months while I was in my temporary home, waiting for my townhouse to be built. They were the best! I try to stop by every once in a while, and I keep in touch with my most favoritist barista of all time, Rob.
I was in the area yesterday, so I decide to pay a quick visit. As I open the door, Rob is rushing out, with a look of determination on his face. Catching him off guard, I say, "Oh, I was just stopping in to say hi!" He replies, "I actually have to give this lovely lady a ride home right now," motioning to his right. I look over and there is the cutest older lady standing there. She says with a shy smile, "I locked my keys in my car, so he's taking me home to get my spare." As I think about what a sweet gesture that is, Rob turns back, grins, and says, "How's that for Operation NICE?"
So true! Knowing Rob, I'm sure she came into the store all distressed, he noticed and asked what was wrong, she divulged her story, and he immediately offered his assistance. Of course, his niceness cost him some quality time with yours truly, but nice guys gotta do what nice guys gotta do.
