An Airport Surprise

I kinda have a huge thing for airports—HUGE. I’ve always believed there’s true magic in an airport. I know a lot of people hate traveling and can’t stand layovers, but I personally love them, because I get to spend more time in a place where travel is front and center. Airports let me people watch and make up stories for people about where they’ve been, where they’re going, who they’re seeing, etc. I LOVE the arrivals section and could watch people embrace their loved ones all day. My absolute favorite airport scene in a movie is the very last clip of Love, Actually, when everyone reunites. It’s so heartfelt and fantastic that I could just watch that particular scene over and over again.

This morning, my friend Katie on Twitter (you know her from She Likes Ruffles, he Likes Truffles) posted a link to this video, and I couldn’t get it up here to share with you all fast enough. I’m in love with it and have already watched it several times. Not only do I love Heathrow Airport, but they did a phenomenal job with this production, especially considering that no instruments were used.

I hope this brightens your day as much as it brightened mine.

Pretty great, right? Now I just wish I could’ve been there to see it live. Hope you have a happy Monday 🙂


  1. That made me cry too!!! I love seeing people so happy! And Jess, you know I have a love-hate for airports but the love wins out since I met my husband in one!

  2. That's great. I freaking LOVE what Glee is doing to this world!!! It would be such a better place if the life was a musical! Hey, here's something to add to your Christmas list: the book "A Week At The Airport: A Heathrow Diary" by Alain de Botton. I heard about it on NPR – I think you would like it.

  3. Yayyy! I'm glad so many other people loved this as much as I did! It totally made me think of the movie Love Actually!
