What could be more appropriate for Valentines Day and Heart Health Awareness Month then a powerful RED dress? I say powerful because it makes a bold statement. We need to be bold when it comes to advocating for our heart health. With every beat our hearts take, those beats allow us to be with those we love.
February is known as a month for lovers but I like to think of it as a month to love our health and those we love. What better way to show our love then to make sure we are healthy? A healthy heart is capable of not only taking care of our own bodies but to make sure our bodies are able to care for our families.
Heart Health is personal for me. My father had his first heart surgery at 57, the age I am now. He is alive today because of continued advancements in cardiac care and a team of dedicated professionals who have led him through an additional 5 surgeries. Our family does not take this for granted. Every beat our hearts take is a gift. A gift of life and love.
I found this gorgeous dress from A.L.C. at Nordstrom and the minute i tried it on I just knew it was what I was looking for. I liked how it had a high neck, covered my arms in all the right areas, was long enough to cover my knees and had a just ever so fun side slit to show a hint of leg.
Go show yourselves some love this month, be bold and be your own best advocate for your heart health and the people you love!
