Australian hairdresser and single mum Aleasha Bliss, 32, took the day off yesterday to celebrate Valentine’s Day. For her, the day was about self-love. She had a massage and facial booked. She’d left a “chocolate heart and love note” in her 12-year-old daughter’s lunchbox that morning.
She wasn’t expecting her day to be made by a stranger.
“I had parked my car on the highway and ran into a service station to go to the bathroom and get a coffee,” Bliss told Mamamia. “When I got back there was a note lodged in the windscreen of my car.”
Her first reaction was irritation. She thought it to be a note from an angry driver. Someone accusing her of cutting them off on the freeway.
Instead, it was something kind and generous that “made her smile”.
It said simply: “Hi, just had to say ‘wow you are breathtaking’. Josh”
Josh also left his phone number. “It was so cute, I was definitely shocked,” Bliss said.
Bliss had no idea who ‘Josh’ was.
“I didn’t see anyone,” she said. “I was trying to secretly look around. I could see some men, but I couldn’t tell who had left the note.”
She posted a photo of the letter to social media, and wrote a blog post in celebration of “the little things”.
