Bright. Bold. Beautiful.

All descriptions of the female name derived from her namesake, the Greek god of the sun, Apollo; a name that hints of elegance, independence, intelligence. What every woman hopes to be.

Apollonia. One of my favorite female names and one of my favorite Roman Catholic saints.

August is the perfect setting for any Apollonia. The sun reigns king over this summer month, allowing warmth and light to glow over the earth. In contrast to the dark winter months that tend to drag on for ages, slowing human functions to a near halt, and creating a frozen fog in the brain, everything in August appears clear; we can see the vibrant colors and minute details. It becomes easy to analyze, easy to ponder.

This is how I wish to read.
