Hi everyone~

I wanted to check in and thank you all for your lovely, lovely words 
of support and encouragement.
Thank you for sharing your stories, your struggles with a loved one or friend, 
and for reaching out to me on a very personal level.
Your stories encouraged me and broke my heart at the same time.
It seems that addiction has touched every family in some way.
I so appreciate your honesty and your willingness to talk about a reality
that is so destructive to the core of a family.

To the core of my family, certainly.

I'm going to take time away this summer.
I need to be outside.
I need to get away.
I need to restore order to my home.
I need to cook and paint and sew and travel and just be.
I have to.  I need to.  I want to.

I won't be opening The Keeping Room until fall, but as always-
you can email me with special orders and I'll be happy to work with you.
I'll be visiting you to stay in touch and follow your summer fun.

Much love to all and enjoy the summer!
