Fun Retirement Cookies!


These pics were snapped with my phone, so yes, not as clear as with my Sony!
I found out a couple of weeks ago that the principal at my son's elementary school would be retiring.  She sent a brief letter out to the school community announcing her retirement and that she hoped, after over 10 years of service as an administrator, she could travel and spend more time with her grandchildren.

She is a sweet lady and I always saw her up and around the school when I was on the campus.  She was a very visible principal and didn't seem the type to just stay plopped behind her desk.  I can only imagine that she will stay as busy in her retirement years. My son and I have had a great rapport with her these last two and half years, and she will be missed!

I'm not really sure why, but I immediately thought of the cover of the old Dr. Seuss book "Oh, the Places You'll Go!", when I decided to make her some cookies.  So, these cookies are somewhat influenced by the "new beginnings" idea behind that story, but not representative.  I mean, I included margarita decorated cookies in this gift set.  It's been a while since I've read the story, but I doubt if the Cat In the Hat and the kid were drinking tequila in their adventure! 

I gave this travel theme cookie set to her as a going away gift and I knew by the look on her face when I delivered them she was happy!  Happy retirement to one deserving lady!  Wishing you safe travels and lots of fun new adventure!
