In the year before we started talking about “before times,” our team used to hide little dolls around the office with messages. It was a way to create community, connect with people in spontaneous but intentional ways and bring a smile to someone’s day. The “babies” – and there were 3 different ones – would pop up in people’s drawers, in files, the kitchen cupboard, on windowsills.
Well it’s been a year. I’m not sure where all the babies are but this week, one of them was found in a pocket of a colleagues sweater. She keeps the sweater on the back of her chair and although she’s been in the office off and on since Covid, today was the day she put on that sweater and felt the lump in the pocket.
It was such a treat to send this photo out to team members.
