As soon as I received the book for review, I went to my nook on the front porch by the fountain and wind chimes where I have created a reading haven. I didn't leave that spot until I had read every page of Ann's book, twice. At one point, I even asked my 15 year old son if I could read a few pages to him. I wanted to tuck some of Ann's golden nuggets into his heart where he might keep them to pull out later for inspiration.

Refreshing. Challenging. And different :) I really liked it!!!

Inspiring, lovely photos, thought-provoking pages!

Pretty pictures.

A good gift book. Takes some of the best stuff out of the book and condenses it for those who aren't readers.
