COURTNEY'S CORNER

Courtney's Corner November 6, 2020

AUSTIN is the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE!

OK, I might be a bit biased, but I love our sense of community, beautiful natural treasures, pet-friendly places, vibrant restaurant scene, rich artistic culture, academic pursuits and innovative companies! I also love our grateful, collaborative and supportive VIBE. Here’s how I plan to plug-in ALL THE GOODNESS this Thanksgiving season!

Anonymous Good Deeds 
These are so fun! Leave a present in a tree at park, pay for the car behind you in the drive-thru or send a gift in the mail. There’s something fun about doing something good with absolutely no recognition!

📙 Reading to Children or the Elderly
I used to volunteer to read aloud for kids who were struggling with reading. It was some of the most rewarding volunteer time I’ve ever done. There is something magical about helping bring stories to life. Writing this newsletter is prompting me to sign up again, maybe over Zoom?!

📃 Write an Unsolicited Letter of Recommendation
I was asked to write a letter of recommendation for a friend a while back. I had such a good time doing it that I decided to write a few for some friends who didn’t request one…I mean why not tell the people you care about how much you admire them?? You can make it fun – compliment their drinking prowess, their incredible wardrobe or acknowledge a place or thing that reminds you of them! Put in in an email or even better, send it by mail. You’ll touch someone’s heart and that’s what the Thanksgiving season is all about!

WHAT'S HAPPENING

COLLECTIBLE RED HOLIDAY CUP

To mark the arrival of the season, Starbucks is giving away a free collectible red holiday cup on Nov. 6, while supplies last, to customers who order a holiday beverage at participating Starbucks stores in the United States. The cup offer is available for orders picked up in stores (including café, drive-thru and curbside) and through Starbucks Delivers.  

Ready, set, READ! The @texasbookfest starts this week and I’ve got my spot saved for the Crowdcast conversation with Matthew McConaughey and Ethan Hawke! Other notables include Erin Brockovich, Britt Benett and Yaa Gyasi! 

Two Hands is a community-focused cafe that strives to create nutritious, simple and delicious food paired with exceptional coffee. Taking inspiration from Australia’s forward-thinking culinary scene and relaxed beachside lifestyle, Two Hands aims to be a place for the community near and far to come unwind in the light-filled space.
