“Today I live in walking distance of the beach. I go to the Farmers Market every week for the most incredible fresh food. I have an abundance of friends who are of a positive mind and beautiful in spirit. I have a wonderful relationship with my beautiful daughter who looks up to me for inspiration and guidance. I am blessed.”
