Something that you probably didn’t know: The Sweetest Day is on October 17th! Originally formed as a day to bestow romantic gestures on others, The Sweetest Day has become an excuse to do something nice for someone else, or yourself. I’m all about a holiday that involves finding new ways to “treat yo’self,” but what I really enjoy is making other people smile. So, to celebrate this newly learned holiday, I decided to set out around Boston and bestow bottles of Sparkling IZZE on unassuming passersby.

Where did I go? Follow the pictures clockwise, starting with the smaller image on the top right:

  1. My first delivery was to some of the neighbors. I surprised them with a few bottles of sparkling Raspberry Watermelon and a nice note on their doorstep.
  2. After that, I headed to a dog park in the South End to hand out more sweet treats. But if I’m being honest, this stop was more about treating myself – I was in need of a puppy fix and it was much less weird this way than being that girl in the dog park who doesn’t have a dog…
  3. Next, I ventured to Fenway to see my friend Krissy of Pollen Floral Design. We spent the afternoon together eating BBQ and scouting cool walls to shoot photos with eucalyptus.
  4. No Fall adventure is complete without a trip to the Arnold Arboretum! I couldn’t resist the foliage so I drove to Jamaica Plain to hand out some IZZE bottles to other leaf peepers – looking up for that long has to make you thirsty, right?
  5. I ended my adventure in Savin Hill where I rescued Heather from her construction zone of an apartment. The poor thing has been trapped in her room while workers gut and remodel her bathroom and kitchen. Nothing a little IZZE can’t fix!

Just because every day isn’t The Sweetest Day, doesn’t mean that you can’t brighten someone’s day. Any gesture of kindness, no matter how small, makes a difference. What are you waiting for? Get out there and pay it forward!

    I’d never heard of Sweetest Day until I lived in Ohio for a few years! These are really cute pics. Love the idea of doing something nice for others on this day!
