That was over a decade ago. Today, I have a staff of dedicated cookie bakers and a wonderfully supportive community of customers. We are still baking inside DBC and I’m still standing next to Greg, although now he is my husband as well as my best friend.
It is my intention to get our cookies out into the world, spreading love and light, sugar and flavor, by whatever means necessary. Cookies are meant to be shared – whether its with someone you love, your neighbor whose having a hard time, your employees who have worked so hard, a client you wish to entice, or just someone with whom you’d like to connect.
So still you ask, what is VLC all ‘About’? While the obvious answer is “cookies” they are only part of the equation. And I do see it as an equation. Love + Cookies = Victory. VLC is about expressing love and connecting to family, friends, even strangers – after all a stranger is only someone else’s family or friend. By choosing love and connection we all win.
I wish you all sweet victory, love, and yes, of course, cookies.
