A true story from Ashburn to brighten your day.

(So we’re trying something new.)

This morning, Steve Ahlberg, a resident of Ashburn, was sitting at the Blend Coffee Bar doing some work. He noticed an older woman searching fruitlessly for a seat in the crowded cafe. So Steve got up and offered his chair to the woman. He moved his computer and took at seat on a stool at the bar. A short time later, an employee approached Steve with a gift card. He read the envelope, turned and looked at the woman. She gave him a small nod and a friendly smile. #Ashburn

    So Steve emailed you to get some attention and praise? Nice. Like the dad on fb who posted how great he is to buy his ex’s groceries? Smh.

      Um, no. We saw a nice post on social media about it and reached out to him and asked if we could share it.
