Announcements, Updates, and Reminders
Love, Love, Love: It's the month to celebrate being in love. When we think of this, we usually think in terms of a significant other. Hallmark, Godiva, and 1-800-Flowers spend a lot of money on advertising to sell a lot of cards, candy, and flowers. Why not make this month about loving yourself? While you are giving gifts to special people in your life, remember to treat yourself well, too. Indulge yourself with a new trinket, get a massage, meet a friend for lunch...do whatever makes you feel special. Don't wait, do it now, and enjoy it -- Live Your Life Out Loud.
Speaking of Love and Diamonds: Congrats! You got engaged on Valentine's Day. There are lots of plans to make in the next few months, be sure one of them is a Prenuptial Agreement...especially if you own a business. Join us live on Sunday, February 21, at 6:30pm EST, on the Here We Are Radio Show. My guest, Judith Hartz, Esq., will discuss this thorny topic -- as well as WHO gets to keep the ring if you break up. Everyone knows someone who has been in this situation, so tune in and be prepared!
Hearty Hearts: Friday, Feb. 5 is the American Heart Association's national Go Red For Women day. Has it been a while since you put on your red dress and dancing shoes? Then get moving toward a healthier you with the 12 week "Go Red Makeover That Can Change Your Life!"
Heartfelt Acts: February 15 - 21 is Random Acts of Kindness week. While I wish kindness was promoted everyday, at least there is a movement toward improving the lives of others. Studies show good deeds may even be good for your heart!
Gifts, Gifts, Gifts: The December gift donation has been made on behalf of the HWA readers to Canine Companions For Independence. HWA pledged $1.00 per the 28 comments posted on the blog during December which was added to a predetermined base amount. Thank you to all who commented, please continue sharing your thoughts; we love to hear from you.
Facebook Review: A "Reviews" tab on the HWA page on FB has been added. We invite you to leave a review of your experience about the HWA blog or FB page. The February gift, a box of Godiva chocolate, will be given to one of the sweet reviewers (randomly selected).
Eat Red: Put some "red" on your plate with the following "good for you" foods: Apples, Cherries, Red Grapes, Raspberries, Strawberries, Pomegranates, and Red Onions.
Valentine Crafts: Need some easy gifts for the kids to make? Check out these Sweets Served Up Without The Sugar for nifty, inexpensive ideas.
Wishing you a warm and fuzzy February!
Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November.
February has twenty-eight alone,
All the rest have thirty-one;
Excepting leap year, -- that's the time
When February's days are twenty-nine.
~ The Return from Parnassus, 1606.
