Smell the Roses Weekly Task

Well it's Monday again, which means it's time for a little Smell the Roses action :)

Last week the task was to hand write a letter and send it to someone you love via snail mail. I sent a letter to one of my grandmas, because consequently she sent me a letter last week, too! I have to admit, it was nice to actually sit down for 20 minutes and write a letter by hand. Hearing the scratch of the pen was a change of pace from hearing the click of the keys, for sure. 

Did you write a letter to someone last week?
If you did I'd love to hear about it - link up with this post so everyone can hear about it :)

This week's Smell the Roses task is...

Buy a stranger a cup of coffee (or lunch) without them knowing it was you.

I'm planning to go through the Starbucks drive-thru and pay for the tab of the car behind me, as well was my own. Just a little something to catch them off guard and brighten their day :)

Are you up for it? If you are, grab a button and link up :)

When I post next week's task, you can link up for buying a stranger a cup of coffee (or lunch). So this week's link up (on this post) is about the letter that you wrote last week :)
Hope that makes sense!

Please link to a specific post that relates to your completion of the Smell the Roses task . The whole post doesn't necessarily have to be dedicated to the task, it just needs to be mentioned :)

 Link up about your handwritten letter here ^
& add the button to your blog or to your Smell the Roses post!
