dear friends - the day has come for this fun little adventure of Reina Cookies to end, at least for now. there are several overarching factors that have led us to this decision. one is that we lost our great baking space, and have not been successful in finding another commisary to bake our chocolate chip and brown sugar oatmeal Reina Cookies. The bigger factor is, as much as i loved every minute of baking cookies with so many dear and treasured friends the past 5.5 years, it has gotten bigger and taken more time than i am willing to sacrifice at the ripe age of 57. between 4 grans who live out of town and God continuing to grow our first passion of COACHES HONOR, wink and i know this is the right decision for now. in fact, with each passing day, there is more peace and an overflow of gratitude for God allowing us to live this dream for the past several years. many of you are probably unaware of the many friends that God sent, who gave of their time to help this business grow. they gave countless hours to help us mix, weigh, bake and package the cookies. we will forever be grateful to them for ALL the joy and prayers they infused into this business. of course, most of you probably do know that Reina Cookies could not have made it through the first Christmas much less over 5 years without my dear friend, patty. She truly led this ship from the beginning and did so with passion, joy, and an abundance of patience for the head baker, aka me!
of course, i have some sadness today as this announcement is made. i'm going to miss getting to send cookies to so many of you and the ones you love. i'm especially going to miss the days in the cookies kitchen of baking cookies. somehow those days became more about doing real life with real friends. ooh the laughter, tears, prayers, and bad jokes we shared! indeed, baking and sharing cookies is a fun gig that i've loved getting to do. so mostly my heart is full of deep gratitude to PapaGod for letting us live this dream for as long as we did. Reina Cookies truly has been a dream come true.
if we ever start back up, you will be the first to know! until then, THANK YOU again to each of you that have enjoyed and shared our cookies with those you love. thanks to each of you for all the encouragement to me along the way. thank you for your kind words and fun stories and pictures of shared Reina Cookies. i feel so deeply blessed to have gotten to share these years of this cookie adventure with such a myriad of dear friends, new and old.
with love continued, reina
