the Summer of the Popsicle {2012}

So.  There is no denying that this year has been unseasonably hot.   I'm amazed daily that while it is technically still Spring, we've had numerous days in the 90°'s here in NW Indiana ...and I've been told that we're not the only ones.  I'm not sure what everybody else is doing to keep cool, but I've been turning to popsicles.  As a matter of fact, I may be just a teeny-tiny bit obsessed with them.

Over the years, I've amassed a pretty hefty folder-full of ripped out magazine pages laden with numerous varieties of popsicles that span all the colors of the rainbow.  And beyond.  I've bookmarked them, both literally and virtually.  I created a pinboard that starts me dreaming every time I take a peek.  And I don't see my current obsession with them cooling down (ha!) any time soon.

So that, my friends, is why I am declaring this the Summer of the Popsicle!  It's going to be popsiclepalooza all summer long in my house.  And what better way to have fun and be able to try all kinds of new popsicles than to invite you to join in my madness!?

I will be keeping this "event" open for the rest of the Spring and throughout the Summer.  I hope that you will add a link to any of your past, present, and future posts that celebrate the joy that is a posicle...a paleta...an ice pop...a push pop!  I will add all links to my Popsicles & Paletas Pinterest board and tweet them, as well.  And once summer concludes, I will do one giant (hopefully) round-up post featuring all of the popsicle posts that helped me beat the heat!

So go ahead and start adding your links below!  Use of the logo is optional, but always appreciated.  I would love it if you'd link to this post (especially in current posts) or feel free to share it in your side bar...just so that others can join in finding and sharing their cold creations, as well.
