To Whom It May Concern:

This may not need to be said here, but I would like to...
Although I may joke about alcohol, I would never intend to offend or hurt anyone by my humor.
I have a healthy relationship and respect for alcohol, and I also acknowledge that it can be a powerful and dangerous substance.
I have seen how it can it negatively alter the lives of friends, family, loved ones, and my closest companion, who I lost last month.
I don't want there to be any confusion when it comes to my thoughts and feelings on this, as I will continue to use my blog and social media brand of "Vanity and Vodka", which I have used for many years.
I, in no way, wish to glamorize alcohol, or alcoholism. My intention has only been to express a fun and carefree attitude associated with doing what makes you feel beautiful, while having a good time (responsibly).
I take this very seriously and felt compelled to say this, from my heart. 
I am overwhelmed with love and empathy for those affected by addiction.

Thank you to everyone who has been by my side, as well as new friends who come forward to offer their love and support during this time.
I am so deeply touched and grateful beyond words.
I would not be here without you.
