Happiest of belated birthdays to this little angel! Hahah totally kidding. She’s the worst! But for whatever reason, since the day this little stray cat wandered into our bakery almost two years ago, we just knew she was supposed to be on this journey alongside us, and was meant to be a part of the fabric of our company. And you know what they say: When you know, you KNOW! (Ok fine that’s what they say about someone you want to marry…but we would totally put a ring on it if her husband didn’t get there first!) Thank you, @klbroudy , for tricking us into hiring you as our first full time baker, and for busting your butt every day since. (Well, except this weekend bc you were off for your bday. Oh and last week I think for something. And two weeks before that?? I can’t keep track…😂😘😂😘) But for realz, you’re a for-lifer with us for as long as you want to be ❤️❤️❤️ And I hope you don’t mind I chose the pic with only half your face for this post. I like you much better this way! #BananaBuddies #bestcakedollops #thosearetheonlytwothatcometomind Photo: @bloguettes
