I have been quiet away from blogging for 1+ month now because I was on vacation and wanted to relax and escape from the anxiety and messiness of my mind. I wanted to have a moment, well more like 6 weeks, of quietness and exploration before I go back to school and start studying. Because studying is boring and stressful right?

I mainly went because it was after high school graduation and I haven’t visited my relatives in a long time. I didn’t travel with many people unlike other past times, I had lots of quiet time to myself and lots of time to walk long distances to visit beautiful scenery in the super hot, humid weather. I’ll expand more about my travels in later posts under the LO.L. section of my blog. In case you were wondering what LO.L. stands for, it stands for Life Of Lydia.

Today’s post is about the yummy goodness of ice cream! Well, nice cream to be exact. Nice cream is the crave and craze these days instead of regular ice cream because it is healthy but has the same texture as ice cream. I decided to use sunflower butter as an allergy-friendly alternative to peanut butter and cacao powder + chocolate chips because chocolate makes everything taste even better!
