RAD August Mobile Wallpaper Freebie

Rita Garcia

Can you believe it's August?!

I took a bit of a break from my social media... but I'm back! As we enter a new month, it's reminds me of the beginnings of a fresh start. I heard a wise and amazing man (#barackobama) say about an extraordinary woman (#michelleobama) she had GRIT & GRACE. I thought those were two words that complemented each other so well despite being so polar opposite. Personally, I've been through the ringer the past couple of months and I plan on taking on August and the future with #gritandgrace. Although I can be a bit more gritty than graceful, but I also give myself grace through those rougher periods. You can remind yourself of this motto by downloading your free wallpaper here www.ritaalexisdesign.com/blog
