I somehow was completely unaware that Sunday marked National Ice Cream Day. Did anyone else miss this? I’m wishing that there was some kind of calendar to view all these special days so I wouldn’t miss out on them. Anyone know of an app for this so I can input all these important holidays? Luckily for me, after a short google search, I realized July is National Ice Cream Month! Which means I can celebrate ice cream all month long. I did just that with my little niece last week. We put on printed shorts (we love matching!), headed to our favorite ice cream spot – Kilwin’s in Downtown Stuart – and tried our very best to eat up the sweet creamy goodness before it melted.

I picked up these J. Crew Factory shorts a few weeks back at Style Encore for just $15. They’re now on sale for about the same price online so go get them! My sister and I picked up those little star printed shorts at Gap a month ago for less than $10. I wish they came in my size – they’re so cute! I appreciate that both pairs of shorts are a modest length – shorts just keep getting shorter and shorter!

Emmi-Lu and I had a blast eating our ice cream and I’m looking forward to sharing more ice cream outings with this little one as she gets older. She’s a doll and I’m extremely lucky to be her Tante.
