I like to draw from my childhood for inspiration when designing. But, I find inspiration from all around. I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that inspire me, such as this little food truck I visited last week. I’ve been wanting to try the shaved ice at Retro Sno for awhile. But, it’s been sooooo hot here in Nashville that I have been avoiding being outside (except when I’m swimming). We got a break in the humidity and the temps were a bit milder the other day, so I ventured out to the Retro Sno truck after lunch one day. (Milder weather also meant I was FINALLY able to wear my Rainbow Remix shoreline boatneck top). Retro Snow is a shaved ice truck here in Nashville. Their menu is full of interesting combinations, like the Sour Grape + Gummies (yes, as in Gummi bears!) or Raspberry Wedding Cake. I got the Strawberry Lemonade. It was a refreshing little summer treat. Next time, I think I’ll be a bit more adventurous and try one of their stuffed snow balls (they have a scoop of ice cream at the bottom). You can also build your own snow ball, which sounds fun. Their little food truck is so cute and seeing all the different combinations of snowballs, left me with lots of inspiration and a nice afternoon treat. If you’re in Nashville, stay up to date to where the Retro Sno truck will be here.
