With the weather warming up, and slow(er) days of Summer coming upon us, let’s take pause. At least once a week we are making time for each other and being intentional with our time.
One of our special treats is ice cream (our favorite healthy version is also dairy-free!).While we could load everyone in the car and drive somewhere, the kids really enjoy making it themselves. Making your own at home is easier than you think!
