First indications of summer here in Nordics:
What do you do when you see the first signs of summer? What do you do when you suddenly see sunlight starts feeling hot? I mean, hot in a good way.
Living in a cold and dark country I know the importance of the sun and sunlight. The summer is more than welcome in my part of the world. People go crazy during summer months, everyone here looks so nonchalant and happy. Witnessing people sunbathing in gardens and enjoying their favorite ice cream is a common sight these days.
I am no different. I also enjoy my fair share of ice cream. And why shouldn’t I, because summer is a festive season. Isn’t it?

Frozen Treats Are Always The Best:
I believe that there is no such thing as too much ice cream during the summer month. There is nothing like enjoying a scoop of one or two cold drool-worthy ice cream on a hot summer day. I don’t mind attacking ice creams all over the year, but consuming them during summer is so much satisfying and fun.
Even though the formal summer here is still an about a month away, I just can’t wait to enjoy the Summer in full swing and eat my favorite watermelon treats, lemonades, frozen desserts, summer bruschetta, summer salads and much more.
So habitually when I begin to see the signs of summer, I run to the grocery and buy some whipped cream to make ice cream. What else could be better than a creamy, chilled and deliciously addictive treat to celebrate the arrival of good old warm days? Right?
We customarily don’t need an affirmation to eat an ice-cream. But if you still need it, then I would say that ‘life is short so enjoy an ice cream before it melts’. 😉
I have mentioned many times earlier that I adore the sweet stuff and ice creams are one of my favorite desserts. So I can tell you that I certainly don’t need an excuse to eat a scoop or two for cherishing an ice cream.
