39+ HUGS, 5 children, 12 adults (1 husband, 1 Mom, 1 Stepdad, 1 employee at Hollandia Nursery, 3 employees at A New Beginning salon, 1 waitress at My Place, 1 Sister, 2 employees at Shop Rite, 1 brother-in-law, 1 employee at River Glen nursing home, 1 Grandpa, 15 friends at a rehearsal dinner)
My first non family hugs of the day today came from employees at an Aveda salon. I was in desperate need of a haircut so took time out this morning to pamper myself. (if you are not familiar with Aveda, they offer scalp and hand massages and know how to treat their guests!) what a way to start my vacation.
Later in the day I stopped in to see my younger sister. Sister hugs are awesome! It was one of those tight squeeze hugs with a little rocking back and forth and maybe even a little hopping around. I wish I lived closer, but if distance creates hugs like that, maybe it is worth it.
Finally just moments ago, my brother-in-law showed up with my nephews. My favorite nephew hug? Me: Can Auntie have a hug? 6 yr old: no Me: Please? 6 yr old: no Me: (as I inch closer) Pretty please? 6 yr old: (as I wrap my arms around him) No Me: I just stole one. 6 yr old: oh darn it. LOL yeah, that just made my night.
Hubby and I are off to a rehearsal dinner where there WILL be more hugs. Stay tuned tomorrow for more on that.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
