Why You Need to Go Out for Ice Cream this Weekend

Y’all – I’m popping over here quickly to ask a humble request.

Can you go get ice cream this weekend?

A fellow blogger lost her mother this week.  My good blogging buddy (and a woman I met in real life at BlogHer) is helping to honor Alexandra’s mother by encouraging others to splurge on a popular guilty pleasure.

From Dana’s post,

“Alexandra’s mother loved nothing more than going out for ice cream, and Alexandra loved nothing more than taking her. I know she’d give a million dollars to be able to do it just one more time, but sometimes life doesn’t work that way.”

Sometimes, when we lose loved ones, it helps to feel that others are here for us – whether we know them intimately or not.

If you want, you can tweet / instagram / facebook a picture of your ice cream adventure with #icecreamforAlexandra so she and her family know.  Or, enjoy the sweet dairy goodness with a silent prayer for her.

Either way, we all appreciate it.
