Summer is near!

Hello all!
We meant to post a blog prior to Mother's Day to congratulate all moms! But, things got really busy at the shop! So... Happy Belated Mother's Day!!

Here is a little fact about Mother's Day:
After her mother died, Anna Jarvis began a campaign that brought about the observance of Mother's Day. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed the order that made Mother's Day a national holiday.

Official Mother's Day flower? White carnations!

With warm sunshine peaking through the clouds here and there, it really feels like summer is near! We were having a bbq at my daughter's house the other weekend when I realized she was cutting mint from her garden for the salad! If the mint's here, summer's definitely near!! :)

Mojito is one of my favorite summer drinks! It's such a refreshing cocktail!! So we thought why not make it a gelato? We played with our delicious lime sorbetto recipe and added some fresh mint to it... and voila! No alcohol in this one, but it is just as good and even more refreshing than what you get at the bar!
