January 15th is Strawberry ice Cream Day...

Growing up in the '60's & '70's... my 6 siblings and I would hover over the mailbox as our birthday neared in anticipation of the yearly "free ice cream cone" postcard from "31 Flavors".
 
 
 
YES...Baskin Robins was known as 31 Flavors back in the day....
and true to its name...there were 31 tasty flavors of creamy ice cream!
Oh the decision making.....
 
 
But it was always easy for me....STRAWBERRY!
Sweet, pink, strawberry!
 

As far as I was concerned there was only one choice!
Not only did I adore strawberry ice cream...it was the only kind I ate!
 
 
As my siblings would hem and haw over what kind to pick....
 
 
I was already enjoying each sweet lick....
 
 
So celebrate today...
National Strawberry Ice Cream Day!
 
 
ENJOY!
Carrie

So I take it Happy Birthday wishes are in order...Happy Birthday Carrie!!! You and I must be very close in age as I grew up a child of the 60's and 70's as well. And my birthday is less than a week away too! I'm going to be 53 years old on the 21st!! Wow, where has the time gone? :) I do not resent growing older as many seem to do though. Instead, I choose to view aging as a blessing. Many don't get the chance. Strawberry huh? I'm a little envious that you always have such an easy choice...I'm more like your siblings, too many delightful choices to pick that easily!! But ice cream is always a treat!! My dear, sweet daddy's favorite was also strawberry. I think I might swing by the grocery store tonight...it is a tradition, right? :)

Carrie! I love the new look for your blog! It's so cute! I am not a huge ice cream fan, UNLESS it is 31 Flavors! But for me, it's mint chocolate chip all the way. If I am anywhere else though, I like one scoop of chocolate and one scoop of strawberry ... YUMMERS! That last cake is too adorable!
