These last few weeks of summer

14 August 2018 Avondale Estates, GA

I'm hearing lots of chatter lately about fall, and how autumn can't come fast enough, and I am here to object.

Enjoy these last few weeks of summer while you can.

Sarah Jean's

13 August 2018 Marietta, GA

My first visit to Sarah Jeans was over five years ago, and it quickly became my favorite ice cream shops around town - better than Jeni's Splendid, better than Queen of Cream, and better than Kilwins, all of which are considered some of the best spots in town for a creamy, churned dessert. They don't have fancy toppings, chocolate coated cones or anything super special. They keep it simple. It's just good, old-fashioned ice cream.

That summer five years ago, I visited Sarah Jean's multiple times - and many times that fall and winter as well. I would drive out of my way and deal with the headache-inducing parking at the Marietta Square just for a banana split. Also, their coffee and salted caramel flavors paired together taste like a caramel macchiato - so good!

These days, I'm less of an ice cream fanatic. Before this weekend, I hadn't been to Sarah Jeans in a couple years, but when I stepped inside it was just as I remembered. I was mentally transported to the days when I'd make the trek to the square after work for a post-dinner treat. Their coffee and salted caramel ice cream flavors taste exactly the same, and I pray they never change.

My great niece continues down the path of perfection. Crumbs, tears, snot bubbles & all. ❤️
