๐ŸŽ’ To all you parents out there sending your little scholars off to school, here's to a year filled with laughter, learning, and perhaps a few "interesting" art projects that will mysteriously find their way home.

May your mornings be chaos-free (or at least chaos-light), your drop-offs be tearless (fingers crossed), and your post-school snack stash remain forever bountiful.

Cheers to a year of growth for the kiddos and a touch of extra sanity for you! ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ“šโœจ

Rebecca Adams is the passionate owner of Grandma Fannie's Handcrafted Soaps & More. Inspired by her grandma, Fannie, who instilled a love for soap-making during her childhood in Alabama, Rebecca's journey started on 5 acres of sustainable land, brimming with purposeful living.

Rebecca's commitment to quality shines through her ๐ฌ๐ฆ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ-๐›๐š๐ญ๐œ๐ก, ๐ก๐š๐ง๐๐œ๐ซ๐š๐Ÿ๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐ฉ๐ซ๐จ๐๐ฎ๐œ๐ญ๐ฌ. With a deep reverence for nature, Rebecca infuses botanicals oils into her creations, reflecting her dedication to never using artificial ingredients. Her packaging is also thoughtfully sustainable โ€” she using biodegradable materials.

Her products embody her love for nature and unwavering commitment to crafting products that pamper and care for the individual, a true testament to her legacy inspired by her grandma Fannie.

Thank you for sharing your story with me, Rebecca, and sharing it with me at my favorite hidden gem in .

I had an incredible conversation with State Representative Kevin Olickal, I strongly believe that we need affordable, accessible educational programs around maternal care. It's critical to support mothers, especially when over a third of new moms reported PPD (postpartum depression) in 2022. No mother should suffer alone.

I want to express my gratitude to Kevin for being an advocate in this area and for discussing important topics like affordable housing and expanding fee assistance programs for children and families. These efforts can make a positive impact on the well-being of families, and I'm committed to advocating for such initiatives.

I had the pleasure of meeting Representative Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz, at her office where we had a thoughtful discussion on various important issues. It was heartening to see several interns (some Skokie residents ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ) present, making the discussion even more dynamic!

Rep Gong-Gershowitz is an invaluable ally for the Skokie Park District. I am grateful for her commitment to our Districts' well-being.

During our meeting, we delved into a range of pressing topics, including the need for affordable housing in Skokie, strategies to promote sustainable practices in construction, and exploring ways to enhance accessibility and affordability of park programs, particularly the Early Childhood Centers, for families within the Park District.

Love this initiative!

Today, we enjoyed delicious sandwiches at the grand opening of Willโ€™s Place. This outstanding establishment is dedicated to creating meaningful employment and vocational training opportunities for adults with disabilities. The story of Will's Place serves as an inspiration, showcasing how communities can unite to serve and support individuals with disabilities.

Next time you're in the area, I invite you to stop by and enjoy a delicious sandwich (the sourdough bread is ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ) ๐Ÿฅช, all while knowing that you are contributing to a noble cause!
