My memories of being a Brownie and then a Girl Scout are a bit dim now that I have reached the ripe old age of 40, but from what I do recall, I always enjoyed it. I loved the community of it, I loved earning badges and, of coarse, I loved the cookies. It wasn’t until I joined the Daisy Troop of Hoboken, NJ for a Friday afternoon “Spring Flowers” cookie workshop, did I realize the deeper benefits of being an alumni of this 101 year old “American Institution” of growing young girls.
I began our Spring cookie workshop with the Daisy Troop by introducing myself, then going around the room and asking each girl to tell me their name and favorite cookie. Being a Samoa fan myself, I was surprised to learn Thin Mints were the most popular GS cookie in this group! (Shocking info!)
What a lovely afternoon! I hope everyone enjoyed their cookies…
Life is Sweet- especially with the Girl Scouts! Hope to visit with them again! Xo Dani
