How to become a tree hugger, like me

I have to say following up the last post was, well hard. But after thinking about it for a week, I have decided that I am going to share with you all how I have become a tree hugger. Or as my friend likes to call me, a crunchy granola.

Since some of you may be beginners at this, I decided to start small. You know, as if you were, say, one of my kids.

This is how we teach our kids to be tree huggers. After all, kids learn by doing.


First step. Find a tree. Second step. Hug it.


The first couple of times it might feel weird, I know. The bark is not exactly soft and cuddly but I assure you, if you try it a few times, you will get used to it.

Ps. Any donations for my therapy are welcome.

As long as they aren't chained to it... Just kidding!

There was a woman who did that in Austin, TX b/c they were going to cut down a really old Oak tree there. She was the ultimate. I might have joined her but I had a biology final. ; )

Glad you are teaching the boys right! : )

You could totally have that Charlotte Diamond song playing over that blog, you know..."Four hugs a day, that's the minimum, four hugs a day not the maximum...."

Too funny....I have enjoyed reading your blog.
I am new to the blog world, but have seen the miracle of the blogging community and prayer in the last two days. Hope you will stop by my blog and pray for little Maggie.
