Soft-woody-like weed

I posted this weed months ago:

Since the weed was still small without flowers, it couldn't be identified.

I took a picture of the plant with its tiny pink-maroon color flowers on it. Sorry about the blurriness of the picture, for trying to get a close-up. Hopefully, it still can be identifiable.

Some location descriptor other than United States might also help.
