I was thinking last night on my drive home from Megan's house how many times a day we hug each other. Last night Jenny and Owen were at Megan's and I'll tell you there was plenty of hugging going on as far as Owen was concerned-LOL!!! He had Auntie Megan, Nana, Mommy and 2 of Auntie Megan's friends to love him and hug him all night!! Sometimes I think we all taking hugging for granted and don't realize how much good a nice hug does.
Here is something I found online about hugging:
"Hugs certainly feel good, both on the giving and receiving end, and it turns out their effects are more than skin deep. A study by University of North Carolina researchers found that hugs increase the "bonding" hormone oxytocin and decrease the risk of heart disease." I think that is great!!
So I thought I would share these photos with you and some of them are really quite amazing!! Make sure you hug someone today!

Enjoy your day and hug someone!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
