Some of my earliest memories are of going to my Oma's house and making a bee-line for the aqua-colored tin on top of her refrigerator... Because it was always FULL of cookies (specifically, arrowroot tea biscuits). Back in college i mentioned to Oma how much I loved the tin and she (obviously not understanding my attachment to it) let me take it home with me. It's sat empty on top of my refrigerator for years now until I asked my mom if she would mind keeping it stocked with similar cookies at her house. Now, everytime Luke goes to Gibis house he makes a bee-line for her pantry and helps himself to cookies from the "cookie box" as he calls it.
Getting cookies out of that tin at my grandmas house is one of my fondest memories... And I hope that now it'll be one of Lukes!
