“There’s always room for ice cream.” Some of the wisest words I’ve ever heard, from my dear Uncle John. As a child my nickname was DQ – short for Dairy Queen. Yes, I love ice cream*. Don’t judge. I’ve always wanted to start a blog about my love for ice cream and my ice cream adventures. The thought of brain freeze and fat pants, stop me in my tracks. Every.single.time. Instead, this one post will highlight my ice cream adventures. I’ll continue to update it. Bookmark it and check back often! ~ 500
*Ice cream is a generalized term used in this post. Custard, gelato, and frozen yogurt are included. I am an equal opportunity frozen dessert eater.
