Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream

This past weekend we took a trip to Columbus OH to visit our good friends Joey and Brendan and, my sister in-law and brother in-law, Kristi and Joel! Joey actually called us out to have my help in decorating his place! (Pics on Facebook) The house is townhome and with two single guys living there it mostly looked "crashed" in and not really lived in. After much decluttering, organizing, consolidating of stuff, cleaning, and finally decorating it definitely looks lived in now! It was a really fun project and a great time hanging out with them! I miss those boys and it was really great getting to see Kristi and Joel too!

While we were there we walked a couple of blocks down to this little ice cream shop called Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream. If you've ever been there than you know what a unique place it is! It's not your typical ice cream shop with flavors like Goat Cheese with Cognac Fig Sauce, Star Anise with Candied Fennel and Sweet Potato with Torched Marshmallows! I was in heaven with my trio of the goat cheese with fig sauce, sweet potato with marshmallow and a scoop of black coffee! YUM! Oh, and not to mention all the other flavors I sampled while trying to decide! If you're ever near a Jeni's CHECK IT OUT!

It was so nice to have a weekend away but no matter what kind of memories I'm creating my thoughts go straight to the one who isn't here creating them with us.

  1. That ice cream sounds incredible, the goat cheese with fig would be a winner for me for sure!

    I'm officially calling you when Aaron and I finally get our own place - I'm always so overwhelmed when I'm faced with a "blank canvas" of an apartment/house and never know where to start decorating and storing :)

    Glad you had a great weekend - we're always praying for you guys and hope we can see you soon.
