Please Buy Some Girl Scout Cookies

Hi everyone,

It is my Daughter Lexi’s FIRST year as a girl scout (technically a Daisy). She is ridiculously excited, and it is a lot of fun to watch. If you’d like to buy some cookies, you can go to her page and order them. They will ship them straight to you and Lexi will be super excited. I really appreciate any support you can give her and the Girl Scouts of America.
