Simple Pleasures: the title says it all, as this book is simply a pleasure to read! The anecdotes, recipes, and ideas for seasonal things to do may take you back to your childhood or forgotten memories, and the quotations and tips are inspiring. It's amazing how the shared experiences and advice of 60+ contributors can make you feel like you're sharing a cup of tea and a heartwarming conversation with a good neighbor or best friend. I think this book could be called "Simple Treasures" - it's a comfort and a joy to read and read again.
