What a great clip. I enjoyed every minute of it. Perhaps I will improvise and see how many people will smile back at me.

That was great! Even better than the L.A. one I have on my blog.
Love how they petitioned for free hugs!!! That's awesome!

Thank you. I always love your blog, but this filled up my "love tank" for the day. I can hardly wait for my son and my husband to wake up so that I can pass the hugs on.

I enjoyed that. I know I would have walked right up to him and claimed my free hug. Sometimes I don't fit in very well in England.
Also I enjoyed your last post about blogging. I love groups of women. I have coffee with a group of women every morning after we drop our kids at school and then I come home and blog with other women. I feel full up on joy!

Thank you Lesley!
I just found your blog & so enjoyed reading the posts and watching this video. Thanks for sharing it. I also love that you created your daughter's wedding invitations . . . I did that with my husband for our wedding in 2005 and it was a wonderful thing! I will be checking in here often. Thanks for sharing your time & yourself. Lenna

I made a FREE HUGS T-shirt for myself and now I am selling it on eBay.com. The responce people give me when wearing this shirt is shocking, they want a hug!! It is simple but I think it is on the right track. Just go to eBay.com and search FREE HUGS, mine is the Blue colored one. I think blue is a softer feeling and it looks go on. Imagine Peace.
