What Would You Do with a Yellow Envelope? After Kim and her husband decide to quit their jobs to travel around the world, they're given a yellow envelope containing a check and instructions to give the money away. The only three rules for the envelope: Don't overthink it; share your experiences; don't feel pressured to give it all away.

Review quote

"The Yellow Envelope is an intriguing and riveting tale of Kim's travel adventures. I was especially intrigued by her process of self-discovery which is tightly woven into her experiences. She talks openly and honestly about earth-shaking moments, marital doubts, and quiet insights...often in the tone of sharing secrets with a best friend. Also, I loved the idea of the physical "yellow envelope," a gift to be given away "in ways that make you smile and make your heart sing." It's a story with passion, risk, and humor." - Rita Golden Gelman, author of Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the Worldshow more
