Plant a Kiss Day

"Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty" ~Ann Herbert

On Sunday, my friend Heather of Create Your Own Beautiful, and I participated in Plant a Kiss Day. Plant a Kiss Day was organized by pal Sherry Richert Belul to celebrate the message behind Amy Krouse Rosenthal's book, Plant a Kiss, a story about how one small act of kindness can bloom.



Heather teaches an awesome dance fitness class, ShimmyPop!, at Hipline on Sundays, so after class we "planted a kiss" by giving all of her students flowers and oranges.  Fun!

Today through May 4th, 16 bloggers (including me) are posting about what we did on Plant a Kiss Day, and taking part in a Blog Hop Party. If you go to the main Plant a Kiss page, you'll see links to the other bloggers' posts. For every blog you visit and comment on, your name will be tossed into a hat for a chance to win one of an array of fun prizes (I'm giving away a one-hour juicy blog coaching session).

Even though Plant a Kiss Day was on Sunday, you can plant one yourself any day (like today!).

Full disclosure: The link to the Plant a Kiss book is attached to my Amazon Associates account.  If you buy something after clicking on the link, I will receive a small percentage of the sale.
