Let's Go Red

Hi All (Viewers, Followers and Friends)
Happy Friday to you.  Hope you're wearing your red today.  Why red?  I'm wearing red in support of women and heart health.  Let's see the information that comes from:   https://www.goredforwomen.org.
Women are strong. Women are smart. Women solve problems. Women can do anything men can do. And, there are some things we’re even better at – dying of heart disease and stroke. Like breaking barriers? Go Red! And help break the one against heart disease.
It’s not just a man’s disease. Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease  and stroke. But we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
When it comes to beating heart disease and stroke, change can be the cure. To save lives and raise awareness of this serious issue, the American Heart Association launched Go Red For Women. And the red dress has become the iconic symbol of our battle against heart disease and stroke in women.
National Wear Red Day® — the first Friday each February — is our special day to bring attention to this staggering fact. We encourage everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk and take action to live longer, healthier lives. 
Here is one thing you can do starting today toward a healthier life:

PS.  Fifty Shades of Gray, the movie, was previewed on the Today show this morning.  My challenge to myself  was to see if I had fifty shades of red in my craft room. I did:

Thanks for viewing today.  Have a nice weekend.  The weather in my area will be around 62 degrees on Sunday.  I'm planning on having a great time.  

Sending you LOVE,
