It is no secret that I adore Hallmark cards. My mom and I used to go into Hallmark when Meg was in her stroller, and just read cards. We would pick one out and laugh and then insist that the other one read it…right now! We would laugh until our sides hurt. I hope that someday that will become a regular occurrence again. Maybe once the kids are old enough not to trash Hallmark by pulling out all of the cards then putting them back in a totally different category. I’m talking about school-age kids here, but I digress.
At BlogHer11 Hallmark had a lovely little room with fluffy comfy couches to rest upon. They had a selection of awesome cards that we could select and mail out or give to another attendee. Purple is my favorite color and they were handing out purple shirts that said, “_______is a special occasion.” We filled in the blanks. I wrote in that “Good Morning Hugs are a special occasion.” I do love me some cuddling in the morning, stinky breath and all.
What I adore about this campaign is that it is so simple. We need to celebrate all of life’s little moments as well as the big ones. I am not an advocate for throwing an expensive party over a first lost tooth or having a pinata tournament for a first bicycle wreck, but a thought, a hug, an extra space of time to recognize how special life is: I am all for.
