Confession:  I’m a hugger.

Hugging is awesome.  It’s one of my favourite things.  A good hug can completely transform my day, my week, my month.  For real.

For me, there’s no such thing as a hug that goes on for too long.  I prefer long hugs to short, weird, unfulfilling hugs… so if you’re gonna hug me, make sure you have at least 10-15 seconds to invest in it… or a couple of hours… I’m ok with that too.

My most favourite children’s book is called The Hug.  It tells the story of a Hug who doesn’t think he’s important, so he tries to change who he is an become something else.  After unsuccessful attempts at trying to be a bicycle tire, a doughnut, and a lollipop he feels small and unimportant until another Hug gives him a hug and he realizes that being a Hug is the most important thing of all because it makes you feel fantastic!

This is exactly how I feel when I get an awesome hug!!

I won’t hug you unless I think that you want to be hugged… so let me know if you’re down for hugging, and we can hug it out.
