Announcements, Updates, & Reminders
When The Bell Tolls: Ahh, to walk the City of Light at any time, but Midnight In Paris delivers an especially magical feast for the eyes in the movie of the summer. Join us on August 6 at 11:00 am EST for Chick Flick Chat as we discuss this fantastical - or is it real? - CinderFella journey that explores love, life, literature, and more in what is sure to become a Woody Allen classic.
Love is Love Any Time of the Year: Some people celebrate Christmas in July, why not Valentine's Day in August? Watch for the upcoming article accompanying this previously recorded Chick Flick Chat. By the way, we ❤ the Here We Are readers and listeners!
It's Gift Time Again!: The July gift of a pink & brown zippered shoulder tote bag by Blue Q goes to Elizabeth H. of Virginia. Congrats and thanks for being part of HWA. Remember readers, to be included in the gift giveaway drawing, you must be an email subscriber.
Since the May, June, and July gifts were all tote bags, I thought a bag holder was a fun change of pace. So, the August gift is one of my favorite things... A beautiful, purse hook by Luxe Link. These useful trinkets should be owned by every woman who carries a purse! One lucky HWA reader will receive the Leilani design purse holder; the recipient will be announced in our September Announcements article.

Time To Share: Recently, HWA reader, Leigh, commented to share a discovery she made with a product we featured in one of our early reviews, Dry Green With Blue Balls. While we are all doing our part to go green, she used these prickly helpers to work out stress knots. If you haven't tried them in your dryer yet, check out the article, I stand by the review and still use them every day; plus, thanks to Leigh we now have a great tip for a second use. Talk about reuse & recycle - who knew! Thanks, Leigh!
Flower of The Month: August is the time for Gladiolus to bloom in all its many colors of the rainbow. Its general meaning is strength of character; due to its sword like appearance, it can also imply a pierced heart meaning love at first sight. After a fruitless search for a quote or poem about this glorious floral spike, and considering this month's Announcement's theme, I offer you a thought by a woman ahead of her time:
The beginning is always today. ~ Mary Wollstonecraft
