Sneakiest Surprise Ever

Two framed photos, sneakily obtained from my computer.

One of the best gifts I've ever gotten was from my friend Alyssa. She was over at my apartment one day and we were looking through my million travel photos from my 4-month backpacking trip in Europe. I had asked her to come over so that she could help me choose which picture I should blow up on a canvas print. There were two photos - one from London and one from Amsterdam - that I absolutely loved and were clearly my favorites from the trip, but they wouldn't have looked good printed on canvas. Alyssa had been to both of those cities and asked that I email her the two photos because - as she claimed - she also really liked the photos I took. I emailed her the photos without thinking twice.

Fast forward to my birthday (maybe a month later!). She surprised me with the same two photos, printed and framed. It was one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever received. I was blown away by how she was sooooooooo sneaky in getting the photos from me. I didn't even realize I had played a small part in my birthday gift until I saw it. Years later, they're still hanging up on my wall!
