Today is National #HotelEmployeeDay! Let’s just do a #ThrowbackThursday to when my mom was a boss Sales & Marketing Manager in hotels for years before leaving all of that to help me with my bakery. I’m so grateful for her sacrifices ❤️

If you’re staying at a hotel today, do something nice for the staff 🫶🏾 I’m bringing cookies to the Wyndham Springfield City Centre today because that’s where we’re staying for a conference!

This is the day Aria’s Cookies & Confections became a business. Sunday, May 10, 2020 (Mother’s Day, I was 15 years old). COVID had just started being really crazy, churches were closed, everything was closed.

So I got the idea that I wanted to bake my chocolate chip cookies as a gift for Mothers. Just the night before this, my mom and I were in the living room, coming up with a name, and designing a logo with Avery label templates and our home inkjet printer. My mom made me a page (this one you’re on right now).

Sunday my sister, my mom and I went around to every mom’s house we knew from Edwardsville to Maryville, to Glen Carbon, Troy and Collinsville and dropped off cookies in their mailboxes, front porch, and wherever else we could leave a little 2-pack of cookies.

That’s when orders started rolling in! Some even paid right then and there! We had no clue that we would be here today. God did though.These cookies were the 1st AC&C creation and they’re my best-seller to this very day!

Last week I had the honor of attending the Hip-Hope Inc. Lead-Her-Ship Retreat in Boone, IA. It was a select group of girls, who completed the Hu$tlenomics Financial Literacy Course, and others. We learned important leadership skills. (I shared the video from the 10:00 news earlier today.)

I stepped WAY out of my comfort zone and did many things I’m normally afraid to do. I learned so much, and I am so blessed to be around other young leaders.

The chaperones were the BEST! Pastor Valerie Jones from Anchored In Truth Ministries, Valora James, We Are Iowa Local 5 News Reporter Laryssa Leone, Dr. Anissa Rowland, Serenity Lowe and Heather Jones-Brown, THANK YOU!

❤️Appreciation Post❤️
I just want to thank all of you who have supported me these past two years. It has been so amazing, and I’ve met some amazing people. My favorite delivery is still when I pulled up to Ms. Lauren’s beautiful home and there was a unicorn in her driveway for her daughter’s birthday!

Or maybe delivering cookies to Ms. Theresa who ordered for her amazing little son, Grayson’s birthday who has been battling a brain tumor. We HAD to stop and get him some balloons for his birthday.

I’m so grateful for all of you. All of the awards and news stories, and referrals and positive comments. This definitely has NOT been easy. Between our family contracting COVID-19 the past TWO Christmas’ and having to cancel orders because I became suddenly ill with a still to-this-day unknown illness for a whole year, that had me in Children’s Hospital for nearly the entire month of June 2021. I had to take Zofran and Tylenol round the clock for a year, just to be able to get out of bed. I just stopped taking meds in May. I haven’t given up, and I won’t.

Thank you all! Thank you Mr. Todd! Thank you all who are curious as to when we will open at Eastgate Plaza. We’re trying to get open. We need a miracle angel investor.

I honestly have the best customers there are. I have the best support system, and the best family. THANK YOU!

Wait! THEEEEE Stellar Gospel Music Awards winning Gospel Recording Artist Kelontae Gavin tried my frosted sugar cookies last night!!

Gospel Artist, Jocelyn Reed opened up for him in STL, so naturally, she ordered cookies since she was going to be in the area from Omaha. Well after the concert, she was so kind to share a cookie with him! He wanted another after eating, and sharing the 1st one with his cousin, who is also a great baker!

(Yes, you see me balled up in the corner because I was SO shy! 😂)

Great evening in the Metro East last night. My distant cousin Tony put together a great meet and greet for me in Collinsville and then while, meeting voters at the Glen Carbon Homecoming Festival, I ran into Charmian, who I met at a Chamber of Commerce event back in April. I finally got to meet her daughter and try Aria’s Cookies & Confections, LLC and HIGHLY recommend them. Delicious!
Amazing cupcakes for an amazing mother on her 90th Birthday! Thank you Aria's Cookies & Confections!
Aria’s Cookies & Confections, LLC is opening a brick and mortar soon and Aria designed it herself!! Her cookie’s are soooo good!
Our event tonight is Rain or Shine at Drost Park -Registration/Goodie Bag pickup is from 5-6pm -short program begins at 6:15pm -5K run/walk begins at 6:30pm -1 Mile walk begins at 7:00pm -100m dash and awards will begin around 7:30pm Taqueria Matilde and Aria’s Cookies & Confections, LLC will be there set up as our food vendors. Jeremy Genin will be our DJ, and please visit our sponsor tables. See you tonight!
As I've said before, my favorite part of this campaign is hearing various people's stories. Like this week when I met Charmian at an Edwardsville Chamber of Commerce event. She told me about her daughter Aria who was struggling in school, both with academics and behavior, so they made the decision to switch to home schooling. Then, Aria recently became a teenage entrepreneur and founded Aria’s Cookies & Confections, LLC. This is the kind of flexibility and spirit we need to encourage in our education system. I can't wait to try some cookies when Aria opens up her shop next month in Edwardsville!
