Creamy Chai Rooibos Latte: how I’m dealing with not having Picnik in my life anymore

Curing my cravings for Picnik Austin with this delicious, caffeine free, nutrient packed Creamy Rooibos Chai Latte | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com

I am loving living in Orange County again. Don’t get me wrong, I miss my husband like crazy. But having the sunny warm weather, the beach just a few miles away, and any health food store I could possibly want within easy driving distance certainly does not suck.
