BLOGTEMBER | day twenty-one
ice cream has been a constant friend in my life since the heartbreaks of my teens + early twenties.
it understands me, comforts me, and pairs well with my favorite dessert - cake.
an ice cream flavor that represents me is most definitely an affogato.
the ice cream itself would be vanilla bean. that might seem boring, but it kinda reminds me of my shyness toward others when we first meet. it's subtle [yet sweet] until you get to the good stuff.
as for the toppings, that's where you can see my crazy + fun + all the in-betweens.
chunks of cookie dough + mini peanut butter cups + swirls of caramel.
but then, i add delicious espresso on top of it all, because coffee basically runs through my veins.
affogatos are so special to me because it reminds me of when jared and i first started dating. we shared our first affogato at cocoa dolce - a cute, gourmet chocolate shop in wichita. we were surrounded by his friends, chatting about life + all the things, as everyone was getting to know me. such sweet [pun definitely intended] memories.
