99 Hand-Holding Inspirations

Inspired by the Fast Approaching 'World Friendship Day' 2013

— July 30, 2013 — Lifestyle
It's almost that time of the year again, when 'World Friendship Day' hits the international stage and everyone celebrates all the various forms of friendship in their lives. The wonderful thing about friendship is that it can transcend any relationship; it can be a pet, family member, lover, coworker, classmate, the possibilities of creating a friendship are boundless.

One of the best ways to express your immeasurable friendship is by the universal action of holding hands. Holding hands conveys the many forms of affection that one person can have for another. From romantic couple editorials to minimalist love illustrations, all of these finds will induce the need to grab your closest friend and hold their hand. World Friendship Day is just around the corner so start thinking of whose hand you want to hold!
