See these smiling faces…these are the faces of two sisters having a goofy good time at the cutest little ice cream shop in Old Fourth Ward — Jake’s Ice Cream Shop. ATLiens, why didn’t anybody tell me about Jake’s? Aside from having the most amazing organic ice cream (and dairy and vegan options, too), the place is just super cute with an eclectic mix of cozy, worn-in furniture, antiques, and books to peruse. I fell in love with the place as soon as I walked through the doors…

I posted a picture of my sister on Instagram, and a friend of mine commented that she didn’t realize I had any siblings. She actually thought I was an only child. I guess I don’t talk about my family very much, do I? I am actually the oldest of 4 brothers and two sisters…the youngest of which is 13! I am the only child from my mom and dad, but both of my parents remarried years later and had children (but we don’t refer to each other as half brothers and sisters…we’re just one big happy family…brothers and sisters…period!). My sister, Noel, is the youngest on my mom’s side and I am a full 10 years older than her. She just moved to Nashville in August for college, so this probably won’t be the last time you’ll see her on the blog. I also have a brother in college in Alabama…and it’s a shame that we don’t spend more time together with him being so close! Aaaand, I have a brother at the University of Idaho finishing up his last year of undergrad…and the rest of my siblings are back in Cali! So, there you have it…I’ve got a pretty big family, but I can see why someone might get only child vibes from me. It was just me for a loooooong time before my parents had any more children, and I’ll admit to being pretty spoiled. Lol.
