After an exceptionally challenging week, I found myself reading this book review of “Use All the Crayons!: The Colorful Guide to Simple Human Happiness” by one of my favorite book reviewers, Mary DeKok Blowers. Just the cover made me smile and Mary’s lighthearted review reminded me that no matter what life is tossing at us, we can choose how to color it. This book is going on My Favorites list.

A little crispy and a little chewy with the fragrance of coconut.

Perfect with a cup of Chamomile Tea!
