Free Hug Friday

9 Apr

It’s been a bit of a whacky week across the board; maybe it’s residual full moon/tide crap, or maybe everyone just needs a week long siesta on the French Riveria or Italian Wine Country. Whatever it is, times like these I wish I could fly around the country to dole out hugs to friends and family and, okay, maybe wine and cupcakes too.

Since I can’t be everywhere I wish to be: in Florida with my childhood BFF who is about to give birth to her first child; my cousin who is engaged and planning her wedding; my friends going through break-ups and heartaches; having a beer with my brother; supporting friends who have men and women overseas. Since I can’t be there, maybe you can. Hug someone close to you today: friend or family, crush or boyfriend, dog or cat. Sometimes that’s all it takes to make someone’s day.

Let’s make today Free Hug Friday.

    Oh how I love this idea and you! So often I find myself wishing I could reach through the computer screen or cell phone and hug someone. I am definitely a hugger. Consider yourself virtually hugged by me.

    When I first read this, I thought it said hug free day, and I thought that was kinda sad.

    But! Since it is free hug day, I can get behind that.

    Happy free hug Friday, Nora. It sounds like a perfect day to open the free hug shop you were talking about. :)

    If it wasn’t for the fact that he’s so stinky, I’d hug Sweets everyday. Maybe I can make an exception today. hahaha.

    I’m also supposed to meet up with old friends (one of whom I haven’t seen in almost a decade) tonight, so I’ll be sure to hug them, too.

    Oh this is one I can totally get behind!! I’ve just finished my Spring Break, but oh my could I do with a week long siesta on the French Riviera… or anywhere for that matter. ;)

    Sending you virtual hugs!! :)

    I am actually probably not going to see a single person I know today but maybe I could hug a stranger. Ha. ;) That is the crappy thing about living alone/being single. I haven’t hugged anyone since Tuesday. I can go weeks without any physical contact because it’s not like I am going to hug a co-worker. :(

    You’re right. We have to reach out. How do we forget that? Here’s a bunch of virtual hugs for you right now!

    I must say, that’s one thing I really miss about high school – the sheer amount of hugs I got in a day. But I try my darnedest to make sure Jason gets multiple hugs a day.
