MILDRED IN CASCO VIEJO, PANAMA 🍹🍦

Hello darlings, Mildred here! Did you miss me?

If you’re new to the blog, allow me to re-introduce myself! I’m Krystle’s #RetroAlterEgo and ice cream companion! I am to Krystle as Sasha Fierce is to BeyoncΓ©.

It's the perfect day to step out and have a scoop or two or three because what's an 80 degree day without sweet treats?
