You’re Exactly Where You’re Supposed to Be

What your inner child would say to you now

Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do.  ~Jean de la Bruyere I never got to go camping as a kid. I got to go to karate practice and Kumon math. Oh boy! I was introduced to camping as an adult and really like it. Last weekend […]
