Sweet Moments

If you were looking for an excuse to go out for your favorite ice cream treat...you've got one. It's National Ice Cream Day!

According to the International Dairy Foods Association, in 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation's population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

I'll admit, it's hard to say no to ice cream. ;) My faves...our local Ollie's Strawberry Arctic Blast, DQ Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard and from the grocer's freezer, Fanny Mae Mint Meltaway. Yum!

I'm headed up to Galena territory this week with Chris and the kids. We're looking forward to some serious downtime and the opportunity to reconnect. Our big guys have been very busy so it seems like they haven't been around much. It will be wonderful to enjoy five whole days together! :)

I'll catch up with you when we return. Until then, may you enjoy lots of sweet moments! Smiles~ Patti

Cute card, Patti! Thanks for giving me a justifiable reason to eat ice cream! You did a Copics. Have a great time with your family!

Well, apparently I left part of a line out of the above comment. Oops! It should say: You did a great job with the Copics!

Sweet card, Patti! ;D I LOVE ice cream...actually my whole family does, and we eat it a bit too often (if there is such a thing as eating ice cream too often -lol).

So you're among those who use Copics now? I'm envious! ;)

Hope you enjoy your family time together.

Hey, Patti! Hope you had a nice vacation with your family. Now that I'm finally back home, I'll get to that email reply I've been owing you for the longest time.

I also wanted to let you know I have something for you on my blog. ;)
