Thanks to Carrie and Maggie for educating and instilling good green habits into our children. Those habits will hopefully last a lifetime and make the world a better place. Anne of Sweet Annies began with community service - in school district 161, then on the school board, and Religious Education at IJP! Her goodies are an extension of her. And we all love them!

Annie is the best-she loves to bake and share her baked goods whenever possible. she has the biggest heart I have ever seen when it comes to giving. I hope everyone visits her shop in F Flossmoor. Taste her pastries-they are wonderful.
