Celebrate National Ice Cream Month with Graeter’s!

I’m not sure where you live, but it’s definitely SUMMER where we are! Temps are in the 90’s each day, and each day I try to decide whether it’s too hot to walk the girls down to the mailbox in their stroller or not. (It’s about half a mile down to our mailbox). That is, of course, if it isn’t pouring buckets of rain already. Yes, it’s definitely summer here in Central Florida!

With the temps alone it stands to reason that July is actually National Ice Cream Month! While our family would celebrate this event EVERY month with no problem, Graeter’s is having an especially big celebration, because they’ve now been in the ice cream business for 147 years! So Happy Birthday, Graeter’s! We think you’re something pretty great to celebrate!


Graeter’s Ice Cream is a nationally recognized and awarded ice cream brand (Named Top 5 in the Country by the Food Network!) that was founded almost 150 years ago in Cincinnati, OH. The fourth-generation family owned and operated company has perfected the art of using the French Pot, a traditional, small batch artisanal process of making ice cream. Known for their indulgent, premium flavors and ingredients, they’re also widely recognized for their gargantuan gourmet chocolate chips.

Coming Soon…

Coming soon (next week, in fact!) to The Road to Domestication is our First Annual Christmas Home Tour!


I’m so excited and so nervous about this one! I’m excited because I have hand-selected homes of ladies I know who do an amazing job decorating for Christmas, and I know they will inspire you to make your home amazing this Christmas, too! I’m nervous because I normally like to have these things completely put together and ready to roll the week before they begin…and as of right now I’m still visiting homes and photographing them! AH! So we’ll see how this works out. It may be something that I don’t ever do again, HA! Or it may be something that everyone looks forward to every year. So y’all just bear with me! Either way, I’m still mostly excited! I hope you are, too!

Also, today I’m featured over at Keep it Simple, Make it Great! Thanks to the lovely Paula for having me! Make sure you CLICK HERE to head on over and check it out!

Lastly, I hope all of you crazies who are out for Black Friday are getting some good deals! I’m home decorating for Christmas! You’ll see soon enough!
