We are right in the middle of one of my favorite times of the year, Girl Scout Cookie Season! Those adorable little up and coming entrepreneurs are setup outside virtually every grocery store working their little “businesses”; why not grab a box of those delicious treats and pair them with your favorite wine! I don’t think there is a Girl Scout Cookie that I haven’t loved. I am however, a quite sad that the Thanks A Lots are being retired!
