Have you ever experienced one of those amazing platonic hugs that lasts way beyond a normal hug but doesn't become awkward? I had one of these hugs this summer, and I'm still smiling when I think of it. It's the kind of hug that takes the weight of the world off your shoulders and makes you feel like you're flying, just soaring above the chaos of this busy world. It's the kind of hug that helps you embrace emotion and move you through circumstance. It's the kind of hug that fills you from the inside out. It could be with a parent, partner, sibling, friend, pet or even stranger. These hugs are awesome. So the next time you have the opportunity of one of these hugs, my advice is to go for it. Don't be afraid. Love is pretty dang cool.
For those of you who are new to the Hat of the Week...
Here at Flipside Hats, we use and reuse as much fabric as possible. I've been cutting and collecting hat pieces from scrap fabric for months because I couldn't bring myself to throw out something so usable. It didn't strike me until now how I would actually implement them. So now...welcome to the Hat of the Week! These hats are VERY LIMITED EDITION (we're talking sometimes less than 10), and when they're gone, they're gone. I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I have designing them.
