hi! i'm bailey.

And I love cookies.  Chocolate chip cookies, to be exact. 

It all started when I was a kid and my mom always had our cookie jar filled with her world-famous (okay, maybe just locally-famous) chocolate chip cookies.  Looking back, her cookies always made our guests feel warm and special. 

Fast forward a few years, and I was traveling the country.  Whenever I was in a new place and a chocolate chip cookie was on the menu, I'd order it to have a taste of home.  At first, I didn't think anything of it.  Then I realized that some people visit every college football stadium they can, take double-decker buses to see stars' homes or visit cultural icons.  I eat cookies.  Thus, Cookie Tour was born.

What I've found is that each cookie is as unique as the cities, restaurants, coffee shops and people who make them.  Yet they all have the same effect.  They bring a smile and a moment of joy. 

So, I hope you'll join me on the Cookie Tour.  The posts will be short and sweet.  Whether you're at home or on vacation, I think you'll find your favorite cookie and maybe even have a little fun along the way.
