The Story Behind the Name

I really love hugs. In my opinion, the very best kind of hug is the two-handed standy-uppy hug. It started as an inside joke with my family, and the name still makes me smile. It’s a completely intentional kind of hug that really shows someone you value them. How do you give one? Put down whatever is in your hands, mentally set aside whatever is on your mind, focus on the person you are going to hug, stand up and wrap them up in a big squeeze. It may not seem like a big deal, but taking 30 seconds to give someone a sincere hug can totally change their day.
