Life has been crazy for the past few weeks, so I'm sorry for missing out on my blog posts. I have lots to share with you... On Easter Sunday, Nicki and I went to the Monument Avenue Easter Parade where she enjoyed some vanilla ice cream straight from the cone! This got me thinking about how very American ice cream is...it's a staple at most every summer gathering and the simple sound of the ice cream truck cruising through the neighborhood conjures up memories of summertime and childhood days gone by. A link on the Turkey Hill ice cream website insists that our favorite ice cream flavor tells a lot about our personality and even suggests which breed of dog we best associate with! Uhhhh, Nicki hopes mine says POODLE.
Turkey Hill - Links to Ice Cream Personality Tests
While I was unable to attend the spring furniture market in High Point a few weeks ago, I enjoyed reading and hearing about the latest trends. This video is excellent and talks about how the "Patriotic Spirit" was alive and well at the spring market - from "made in America" to Americana themes to Federalist details to historical references to a nostalgic spirit and definitely some stars and stripes.
Nicki and I want to know, how about some ice cream to go along with this theme? After all, Memorial Day is only 2 weeks away...
