A Thought Provoking Question From Lucy

Yesterday, my best friend Lucy and I took a trip to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park to visit the Japanese Tea Gardens. I can't even begin to tell you about the wonderful adventures we had.

Enjoy the Crash!

It has taken many years and much practice for me to learn what healthy boundaries are and how to set them.
