kristenanniebell Anthony and Caressa Paolino have four kiddos, including three triplet girls born last year. A few years ago, Anthony purchased a local sports pub in his hometown, Canal Fulton, Ohio, and transformed it into a thriving business. With pandemic restrictions, their restaurant and income has taken a hit, but the family continues to stay positive by raising funds for community organizations and local families in need. Paolinos, we are rooting for you and helping out with one year of Hello Bello bundles for your family!

kristenanniebell I think days where we celebrate love should acknowledge all the differnt kinds of love.
There are 7 differnt kinds. Currently, my kids are watching a movie and dad woke super early so hes resting, which means I'm able to sit outside and knit in the sun. Im getting some (healthy) Philautia, and some intermittent Philia from the pups. I hope each and every one reading this gets one or more of the 7 today, and every day.
1. Eros: romantic love
2. Philia: Friendship love
3. Storage(Stor-jay): familial love
4. Agape: universal love, as in strangers, nature or God
5. Ludus: playful or uncommitted love. Teasing, flirting, fun with no strings attached.
6. Pragma: practical love founded on reason or duty and one’s longer-term interests
7.. Philautia: self-love. Which can be healthy or unhealthy. "Unhealthy self-love is akin to hubris. In Ancient Greece, people could be accused of hubris if they placed themselves above the gods, or, like certain modern politicians, above the greater good. Many believed that hubris led to destruction, or nemesis.
Healthy self-love, on the other hand, is akin to self-esteem, which is our cognitive and, above all, emotional appraisal of our own worth. More than that, it is the matrix through which we think, feel, and act, and reflects on our relation to ourselves, to others, and to the world."- quote from Psychology Today ( @psych_today
kristenanniebell@daxshepard , this video reminds me so much of you. Not only do you show me loads of intimacy, a smile always creeps across my face when i hear you get off the horn with one of your tattooed motorcycle buddies and you both say "I love you!" As you end the call.
Thank you for being a man who normalized platonic intimacy and shows and tells your friends you love them. It's a very attractive quality.
kristenanniebell Congratulations to Adam, Amanda, and one-year-old Henry Reale who just welcomed two beautiful twin girls into the family! Adam is a dedicated firefighter in Connecticut and a member of the Air Force who soon leaves on deployment. We know that Amanda will have her hands full while he's away, so we want to help out. Reale family, we're giving one year of Hello Bello bundles to your growing family. Thank you for your service to your community and country!
