Finding Freedom in the Stars

Have you ever scrolled through an old journal or even your old Facebook posts and said, “Woah,” and again, “WOAH?” I recently did. It is an eye opener to see where my thoughts can wander when I am processing pen to paper. And I am beyond grateful that’s as far as some of my rants went.

Addie Has A Voice
