When I started thinking about what the theme July box for Mail More Love would be, I thought – what are my favorite summer memories? Summer trips to visit my Aunt – my very first pen pal. My Aunt was the coolest grown up kid in the world, and she continues to be today. When I think of summer, I think of her driving me and my sister around in her too cool for school car, singing us songs, taking us to puppet shows and sooooo many trips to get ice cream.
Now that I’m all grown up, I still go visit my Aunt in the summer time and when we’re lucky enough to have my Mom with us we always make time for ice cream. As a fussy kid who would only eat mint chocolate chip ice cream if it was green : ), I marveled at the flavors my Mom, Aunt and Uncle ordered – coffee, jamocha almond fudge, peppermint stick – and they got jimmies!?!
The July box is dedicated to all those summers and my Mom – the greatest lover of ice cream I’ve ever met. She put herself through college scooping ice cream and she had to eat all of her mistakes! Pretty good gig, I’d say. This picture is from our last trip to Richardson’s Ice Cream in Massachusetts – who has the best homemade ice cream and where I used to go look at the cows when I was a kid while I ate my ice cream. I got a HUGE cone filled with one of those adult flavors : ) – peppermint stick – and i loved every last lick!
