To my favorite barista

Today I'm starting up a series (inspired by Lisa) that I've been doing for the past two years - Ten Days of Thankful! Each day from now until Thanksgiving, I'll write about something I'm thankful for - big or small, silly or serious, I'm going to take time each day to recognize something - and I'd love if you'd participate with me in the comments!

Today I'm thankful for Love Letters. I can't believe this site only started in August because it's been growing leaps and bounds ever since! I'm thankful for being part of the team, and for the amazing letters that are left. For the month of November we're writing love letters to baristas - leaving them in local coffee shops, and encouraging people to send a letter to the P.O. Box to be scattered throughout New York City.

Baristas have a special place in my heart...considering I'm married to one. So when I left on a recent business trip, I left behind a love letter especially for him.

To My Favorite Barista,

I know how much you like your job. I know you love your co-workers, and there are people you've formed relationships with because they're such good customers. I know how hard you work and I know how that can sometimes be exhausting.

I know, because I see it every day - being by your side, and listening to your stories.

But what I hope you know is how loved you are at your job. By co-workers, by customers - even by the little kids who smile at you when they come in with their parents. 

You make people's day brighter just by smiling and being yourself, so on behalf of your customers I just wanted to say thank you. 

They all love you - as do I.

xoxo,
Me

So I guess today's thankfulness is two-fold. For love letters, and for my favorite barista. What are you thankful for today?


(I'd encourage you to visit the Love Letter site - this post is also up on our blog today too!)

I love the Ten Days of Thankfulness idea! I was worried I'd missed out with the 30 Days thing going around Twitter, but I'm definitely going to participate in this in some way this week. Lovely letter. :)
