Every now and again a girl just needs a tub of ice cream. For example, when she’s sad, when she’s happy, when it’s hot out, when it’s cold out, when it’s rainy, when it’s sunny, when….oh who am I kidding? A girl just needs some damn ice cream.

Today, I am thankful for ice cream.

I am also thankful for all it’s incarnations: gelato (ciao!), frozen yogurt, frozen custard, sorbet, etc. I know that they make electrolyte pops for after a run on a hot day but it’s just not the same as good old ice cream.

Apparently ice cream has been around for a long, long time and it used to be a luxury. Wait. What am I saying? Used to be? That delicious creamy stuff still is a luxury! I’m a big fan of strawberry in the summer.

I actually prefer my ice creams kind of simple and old fashioned. I don’t need crazy ingredients (other than that crazy New York one I tried) like gummy fish and skittles. I do however, like any kind of chocolate one can fit into a cone.

Today, this girl needs some ice cream. And probably a run right before.

What are you thankful for today?
