Letter to my Summer Love: Part I

Dear Beecher’s Ice Cream,

I can’t believe you are leaving me again. I was a fool to think you would stay this autumn.

I still remember the first time we met. It was my sixth month in this city and I still felt lost. I barely arrived home because I was so focused on your rich chocolate praline ice cream that I stepped into traffic.

That entire summer I basked in a butter pecan afterglow and felt like a child sitting on your concrete haunches with an M&M brownie waffle cone.

Love you,


Beecher’s closes for the season on Sunday, October 4. Stock up while you still can!

About Restless Cube Dweller

Most of my adult life has been defined finding homes in unconventional places, and learning to interact positively with others. I've lived in the middle of nowhere, in small cities, in large cities, in the suburbs, and now in Dubuque, Iowa. This blog represents my musings about growing up, moving on, finding love, and eating well in the suburbs and beyond.
