Cinnamon swirl coffee cake from @threedaughtersbakingco is so good. I don’t usually do coffee cake but this one is so moist and creamy that I can’t resist!

And did you meet @the.4th.daughter yet?!?! If not, check her out. Everyone’s favorite barista is up to some fun antics including a ukulele song about a nasty customer. Don’t worry, most of our customers are gems, but every once in a while, someone misbehaves 🤷‍♀️

Here’s she is: the woman, the myth, the legend. The only person in town who knows what everyone is getting for Mother’s Day. Why does she have this special knowledge? Because she’s the community manager at GSC and sees all the gifts being carefully selected. She’s kind of like the Santa Claus of Mother’s Day.

Thanks @k_dellaquila for being so awesome. We love you!!

This woman is a dynamo! She’s the co-founder of @generalstorecooperative and I guess I can share her with all of Maplewood :-). You’ll have the chance to vote for her in the June primary. It’s a contested one, so be sure to vote.

Yesterday I filed the paperwork to declare my candidacy for the Maplewood Township Committee! 🙌 My name will appear on the ballot at the June 7 Democratic primary. 🇺🇸

Cora wanted to come with me to take a photo in front of town hall. I know she is watching everything I do - from when I opened my first business when she was just 14 months old to now when she is 8 years old and watching her #workingmom campaign to serve in local government. I hope she continues to look at me with the same admiration and love that I see today. And I know she’ll continue to amaze and impress me too. ❤️

#repost Mrs. Meshugga]

I first learned about International Women’s Day when I was dating Mr. Meshugga. 16 years ago it was definitely not a widely celebrated day, but certainly was in Mr. Meshugga’s circle of those that had left the USSR. My future Father-in-Law handed me, and all the other women at lunch, a bouquet of flowers and Mr. Meshugga’s mother and aunt explained what it was all about.

Since that day March 8 has always been a celebration of these strong women who risked everything so that their families could be free. Mr. Meshugga’s paternal grandmother hid her children in the woods from Nazis for almost a year, his maternal grandmother was no more than 5’2” but stood up to Bolsheviks and Nazis to keep her family safe. And of course my beautiful Mother-in-law, who left her entire world behind, who was stateless with her young family, all so her children could live free and Jewish. I designed this shirt, a peace sign made up of the native flowers of Ukraine, in their honor. In honor of every Ukrainian woman protecting their freedom and their families right now.

100% of the proceeds of all our Peace Now & Forever items will be donated to Direct Relief]. Direct Relief is working directly with Ukraine’s Ministry of Health and other partners in the region to provide requested medical aid, from oxygen concentrators to critical care medicines – while preparing to offer longer-term medical aid to people displaced or affected by the conflict.
