Today was a beautiful September. The skies were blue and the temperature was perfect. Lauren and I made a trip to Ciao Bella this morning to top off Penelope’s freezers for the weekend sampling. After we were fully loaded, we headed south. We had events in East Brunswick today at A&P and ShopRite.
We had some special visitors at our second event today. Nicole (if you keep up with our blogs, you know Nicole is one of our college roommates) came to visit, along with her boyfriend, Zack, and her parents. Our events were close to their house and they couldn’t pass up the opportunity to come see two of their favorite people…or to sample some gelato. Mrs. Maikisch was especially excited because she loves the Chocolate Alba Hazelnut. Of courses she sampled that one. Nicole tried the Blood Orange, and just like everyone else, she instantly became a fan. Zack had the Tahitian Vanilla. I thought his was a great choice because the Tahitian Vanilla is my favorite of the onese we are sampling.
Nicole and Zak both donned stickers and I made them pose for a picture with their samples and stickers, hence the picture above.
It was great seeing them again. We were really glad they were able to come see Penelope in action. They’ve heard lots of stories and seen lots of pictures, but today they actually got to meet her!
Make sure to come see us either tomorrow or Sunday. The East Coast Bella Girls and Penelope only have two more days left on the summer tour and we would really love to meet you and share Ciao Bella with you. We can’t wait to see you!
