Einstein has a great quote that says “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.”

With the holidays approaching, the idea of constant moving can be stressful. However that movement is also at the center of how we grow. I want to dedicate today’s Throwback Thursday post to one of my favorite bicycle enthusiasts, my dad. He’s a big cyclist so I always keep my eyes peeled for good gift ideas for the bike lover. The nostalgia of the bike will forever be a childlike memory for us all.

I would love to share with you a new apron story from the IceMilk Aprons children’s collection – Sugar Cone Scoops.

Each of the aprons in the children’s collection was named after a fond childhood memory of my own recollection. Ice cream has long been a summer {ok, year-round …} favorite of mine; one of my favorite treats of all time. And, what better time of year than summer to share the special memories behind this little apron.

Growing up in Florida, we certainly had our share of hot, steamy summer days {and nights for that matter!} but there is nothing I love more than the heat of summer. I think it must be in your bones from birth to truly enjoy it, and I do. We had an old-fashioned ice cream churn and my sister and I would enjoy mixing the recipe and taking turns pouringĀ  the rock salt. I remember making strawberry and vanilla, but vanilla has always been my favorite flavor, so the apron namesake celebrated this simple flavor.

Most afternoons we would have a 20-minute thunderstorm sometime between 3:00-4:00pm so you had to be sure to time your treat right. I most loved making it early afternoon, giving it time to freeze and then enjoying it while the quick thunderstorms rained down. These special memories also inspired my Vanilla Churned-Sundays apron, as you may recall.

I’d love to know – what is your favorite ice cream flavor?
