caricatured

caricature image Ever walked around a fair or theme park and watched random people being drawn as caricatures? Or seen celebrity caricatures as posters? We get so caught up in our own looks that when they are exaggerated in a caricature, we’re able to laugh at our flaws and accept what we really look like without really caring. A good laugh is always good for the heart.
bond for the heart

Bond: four letters, one syllable. It is a binding agreement; a covenant. It is an attractive force that holds together the atoms in a molecule. It is an adhesive that combines, unites, or strengthens. Family Bonding: two words, one stronger meaning; it’s the little things in life that make all the difference. Through the chaos of exams, bad days, breakups, and pulling all nighters, bonding with the people closest to you does the heart some healing. During Family Weekend, get to know your family on a deeper level, get hypnotized together, experience gator nights for the first time, laugh at the caricature of your family, or release all your stress through yoga.

Talk during breakfast, lunch, or dinner about dreams, inspirations, and hobbies. Maybe you'll find out that you're not the only crazy one in your family.
