I told you that I would be clearing out some things to try and get rid of stuff that may be taking up space in my house and my life. I started in my closet. One thing that had to go was an old jewelry box. My husband called it a granny jewelry box. He’s so sweet.
While I was going through all of the old jewelry, some of it turning a lovely shade of green, I found something.
Hiding under some old plastic earrings was a letter. I’d forgotten all about it. It was a letter from a secret admirer in high school. He had taped it to my locker.
Taped on the inside of the letter was a gold heart pendant. I never found out who was behind the letter. I just remember being a young girl who hadn’t yet stepped fully into my confidence and feeling really special. I remember walking around my school trying to guess who the guy might be. I may have given a few folks some hopeful looks. I also remember watching my back. I’m pretty sure this note was taped INSIDE my combination-locked locker. Nevertheless, it was a pretty sweet gesture. What a way to boost a girls confidence a notch or two!
Have you ever had a secret admirer? Is it a sweet gesture or creepy?
