Marionberry Ice Cream Sandwiches
When our dear friends dropped by for lunch, on their way to celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on a 10-day trip through Eastern Oregon, they brought the most thoughtful house warming gift. Some may think it’s old-fashioned, because it does seem to be a lost art and a practice used years ago, but a “guest book” is a lovely way to remember who came to visit, and when, and it included a personalized note—a handwritten message.

I was tickled pink when I unwrapped the beautiful book, with their special note and wishes for our new home inside.

Handwriting–a lost art. (And letter writing)

Sitting and enjoying a meal together in the middle of the day, is sometimes a lost art.

Listening to a darling couple, married 60 years, talk about their guest remembrances, special places and memories they’ve lived in the world, a gift indeed.

Their stories. The way they value people and connection. The way they care enough to ask us about our lives.

Our friends are people people. They value relationships and experiences. It has defined them over the years.

A sweet memory for me, as we were cleaning out our house to move to our new location, was the box I found under my bed of our wedding cards, from 25 years ago.

I thumbed through the cards to find one from Faye for my wedding (25 years ago!) shower!

To Sandy, with love. Your very own Swiss knife and key ring (it was red), for quick picnics with your husband and friends, and happy nibbles on trips and adventures! You are a honey, love, Faye.

Even back then, they were encouraging when it came to relationships and hospitality.

So together, my husband, daughter and I enjoyed a bowl of this soup (link), and then I pulled out of the freezer one of my all-time favorite summer desserts.

Easy to prepare a head of time.

All you need is good cookies (I buy these Oat Crisps from IKEA and freeze them), and good quality ice cream.

Tillamook is where it’s at for me, being an Oregonian, and a lover of marionberries!

Put together and freeze!

Also, in celebration of National Ice Cream Day, I posted an easy sundae ice cream bar idea over at Chinet. ENJOY!

Happy Friday, Friends!

  1. Is this the Oat Crisps from Ikea?  Sure look yummy and I do enjoy the Marionberry ice cream also?….thanks!

  2. YUM! As always those look so good. My mother in law has a guestbook at her house for people to sign. She and my FIL recently went on a road trip to the grand canyon and met a few people on the way who were german and swiss (her heritage). She didn’t know them from Adam, but my FIL laughed as she, without hesitation invited them to stay at their house if ever they were in our neck of the woods. That’s how she is. When my hubby’s schedule was more flexible, we often had people stay in our home or always entertained guest speakers, etc…so much fun. Hopefully someday we’ll be back to that a bit more.
