Saw this segment on the TODAY show this morning. Apparently, hugging has become the new "hello" for teenagers. I find this very difficult to understand...because "hello" for me has ALWAYS been a hug. I realize, however, that hugging is not everyone's "hello." I hugged a sweet friend the other day and realized very quickly she was not a hugger....it could have been an awkward moment, but I wouldn't allow it....I just poked fun at myself for being such an enthusiastic hugger. I personally love that hugs are the new "hello" :)!
