"Abby Vega gives us a wonderful gift with her new and inspiring memoir and it's wrapped with authentic and transparent heartfelt emotions and personal stories. I gave it to my wife to read and she loved it."

Jon Gordon, Wall Street Journal best-selling author

"Abby Vega totally embodies the concepts of total well-being by having her financial health in good hands, preserving her physical health through diet and exercise, and has taken the third component of emotional well-being purpose, passion and social connections to a whole new level with her sno-cone experience, writing her first book The Sno-Cone Diaries at 57, and her adventurous spirit and openness to try her hand at any and all that life throws her way. She is a courageous, kind, creative, generous, and gracious woman. She is indeed one of a kind."

"I recall the day my wife came home and told me her friend had bought a sno-cone truck. My initial thought was, 'Now what has Elisa gotten us into!' Little did I know that a sno-cone truck would ultimately thaw the hearts of sick children at Wolfson's Children's Hospital, shining a little light on a day that was otherwise dim. I am typically not a person who takes risks in my life, but after having a chance to live through these experiences, I am grateful for the enrichment That Abby's daring has brought to my life. I admire the courage Abby had in illustrating her incredibly personal and inspirational story. I am a better man and better husband as a result of this book. Thank you Abby!
