I made some special Valentine's Day cards:
And then I sealed them in envelopes:(lots of envelopes...)
Now, I must admit, I didn't get to take as many pictures as I'd hoped. There were so many people everywhere today! It would have been dangerous, you know. I would've been caught.
First, I left a card in the pew at church this morning. There's a 6pm service tonight which usually has lots of college kids in attendance. Hopefully, one of them finds the little card.
Then I went to the Starbucks on the corner of Craig Street and Forbes Avenue. I ordered a hot beverage and a treat, and then I proceeded to go to the condiment counter and act like I was getting napkins and stuff. I very stealthily dropped an envelope on the counter and made a swift and quiet exit. One down, many more to go.
Next, I drove downtown and went to the Omni William Penn Hotel. I left two cards in the women's restroom:
And then I left one on a table in the lobby:
And I also left one on the ledge by the front entrance of the hotel. Couldn't get a picture, though. (Secret Agent Fail.)
Then I moved on to the Shadyside neighborhood, to Walnut Street's shops:
I left one card in the dressing room at the Gap:
I also left one on the top of a pile of folded jeans. The problem? I totally got caught. Yup. A girl shopping in the section saw me. (Secret Agent Double Fail.) She just turned the corner and appeared suddenly, and I couldn't move fast enough. I just smiled and walked away. Maybe she picked it up. Or maybe she left it for someone else. Either way, that smile was enough.
Then I went to Ann Taylor. I tried on some really cute stuff...only so I'd be able to leave a card in the dressing room:
All in all, it was a fun day of spreading love. With all of the snow, though, and the lack of parking due to said snow, it took me about 3 hours to complete this entire mission. Needless to say, I was exhausted when I returned to Command Central.
Happy Valentine's Day, friends. I hope you've spread love today and have had love returned to you. It really does make the world go 'round.
