feelings and ice cream

My mom sold our house, so I've been in Illinois this week sifting through my childhood and eating my feelings. Ice cream is one of the most onnom comfort foods there is, and as luck would have it, today is national ice cream day!


Among the many gemmie items I've found (you know, like my preschool graduation cap and my pointe shoes) are these ice cream paintings. High School art is pretty darn great, huh? Not quite sure what the assignment was, but clearly for me, there was no better subject than ice cream.

I'll be taking a break from sorting today in order to head to Gene's Ice Cream. A vanilla-chocolate twist dipped in crunch for me please! In a cone, obviously. Cups are lame. 

Where will you be getting your scoops from today?
