August has been a thought provoking month for me and I have grown to realize my blog and social media are always there and it’s okay to take breaks. It’s okay to live and laugh and enjoy the days and pretty evenings. .

I wanted to share not only about what helps me, but also resources if you or a loved one is struggling with addiction.
