Encircle calendar page

 

For my calendar of strong women , I am hoping to use these paintings. My friend Holly purchased this home to support the LGBT youth, my friend Stephenie is the founder and helps run it, with the help of many dedicated volunteers.  These women have the biggest kindest hearts.  I'm excited to feature them and honor them.
