It KILLED me not to mention this in the original Closin' Cookies post, but I did not on the advice of our realtors. I think now, however, I can safely reveal the story:
We put the house up for sale on a Friday night.
The next day - Saturday - we had two parties look at the house. The parties were offered fresh-baked, chocolate chip cookies .
By Saturday night, we had an offer. We accepted it on Sunday afternoon.
So thank you cookies. Thank you for selling our house.
