It’s been almost a year that our city, The City Beautiful, was attacked and we saw how one disturbed individual could forever scar and destroy the lives of dozens of innocent people in a matter of minutes. But through the clouds of despair we saw something else. A beautiful city with a diverse populace coming together to donate blood, care of the wounded, grieve the lost and to give hugs to strangers who needed them. A community that, at its time of crisis stood stronger together than ever before. And these are the people that I am proud to call my family, friends and neighbors.
Join me tomorrow at Williams-Sonoma, Mall at The Millenia as we honor those 49 beautiful souls and stand together as a community for Monday’s#OrlandoUnitedDay. I’ll be sharing some of my sweetest creations, including these Pride Cookies. I encourage you to make these cookies as well, and share the sweetness with your family, friends, and neighbors.
