70+ HUGS 4 children, 30+ adults (1 Mom, 1 Stepdad, 1 Grandpa, 1 Bride, 1 Groom, 27+ wedding guests)
More about yesterday, I have added 20+ more hugs to yesterday’s total because of the wedding rehearsal dinner I went to. Most of the hugs were from very good friends, but some were from people I had never met before. I love being in an environment where hugs are completely socially acceptable. I didn’t have to ask permission for the hugs, people are just receptive to them on such jovial occasions. It helps too that at weddings, there is a common bond. Everyone knows at least one of the people getting married, so there is a temporary bonding that happens between everyone invited. More so at the rehearsal dinners because these are the exclusives….ooooo…I was an exclusive. Ok, maybe overly dramatic, but there is truth in it. Everyone in the room knows that each other has a special bond to the couple getting married. This creates such a feeling of love and warmth between strangers that is typically not found. Yeah, yeah, I know I am rambling about this. But weddings truly are an exciting time and I can’t wait for the ceremony and reception tonight. Wonder how many hugs I will get? Wonder if I will be able to keep count? Whee, what an exciting thought.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
