“Choose joy on purpose”

I loved Sam’s bright and cheerful personality; her character’s funky outfits and genuine nature prompted me to want to add a little more color in my wardrobe and to not be afraid of what others would think. Although Duncan, was painted as a bit of a curmudgeon at first, I knew that in his heart that he was a good man just trying to do the right thing after something tragic had occurred. I will say, I saw the direction that Center’s was taking the story after just a few chapters and I think that had me swaying in Duncan’s favor.  It filled me with hope, it made me laugh, brought tears to my eyes, and taught me a thing or two on perseverance. I recommend this to anyone who needs a little bit of joy and light in their life.

I sticking with the theme for the book, I thought it would be fun to create a cookie cake paint pallet. It’s super easy to make and would be the perfect addition to a birthday party!


1 16oz tube of cookie dough

1 container of vanilla icing

Food Coloring (red, orange, yellow, green and blue)


  1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Let cookie get to room temperature

3. Take out an ungreased 9″ springform pan

4. Lightly flower you hands and then begin pressing the cookie dough into the pan until it’s evenly spread in pan

5. Cook for 15 minutes

6. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes

7. Carefully (very carefully) transfer cookie to a plate

8. Open the container of vanilla icing and scoop out 2 tbsp of icing into 5 bowls

9. Mix food coloring into icing (one color per bowl)

10. Place each scoop of icing onto the cookie

11. Using a small glass, cut out a hole in the cookie and discard (or eat)
