Family Friendly Summer Cuddle Events – Community Cuddles
It’s summer time and the kids are out of school, temperatures are heating up, pools are open. And cuddling? Cuddling gets more creative. Yesterday we had our second Family Friendly Summer Cuddle Event of 2018.
Thanks to all who came yesterday. We had 15 people including one empowered young person, 7 people who came to Community Cuddles for the first time, and a bunch of us who know what we’re getting into and keep coming back. I appreciate your courage, vulnerability, and commitment to connection!
In June we met at North Boulder Park and had a lovely time warming up with juggling and face/arm painting before the Welcome Circle started. Snacks are always potluck and this time we had chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies (thanks mom!), parmesan crisps, croissants, and popcorn. The rain came in rather suddenly but we could have made a run for it. Instead, we put the highly water-averse things in the car and nestled down with each other. It was so fun to cuddle in the rain.
In August, the group cuddling will be at Arise Music Festival at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, CO. We’ll be back in Boulder for September. See you then!
