Frost Doughnuts - A Delicious Do


A couple of weeks ago, my roommate and I went to run some errands, but stopped to each brunch at Georgia's Greek Deli, which I talked about in this post. What I haven't talked about yet is our excursion to Frost, a delicious doughnut shop in Mill Creek.

They refer to themselves as the "Destination for Dessert," which is a very fitting description indeed. Outside of the store, you're met with giant sized images of cupcakes and desserts, making it very difficult to simply walk by without wanting to walk in:

I had a hard time choosing a delectable treat, which you can possibly determine was a result of there being so many choices available. In the picture below, you can only see the cupcakes side. Further to the right, there were the doughnuts. Aren't they pretty? Oh cuppy-cakes...


 But I eventually selected the maple bacon bar:

which has gobs of crunchy bacon layered into the maple glaze. Truly delicious. I waited until the following morning for breakfast to indulge in the doughnut, but on the other hand, the treat I allowed myself to have on that day was the hot cocoa cupcake, which had the creamiest and richest whipped cream frosting. Delicious, times two!


So my overall rating of this shop? Out of 5 stars, I would give 4.5 stars. I haven't gotten to try their coffee or wine pairings. Nor did I try any other flavors, but when I return there some day, I will need to try out more things to see if my rating changes. Yelp has a solid 4 stars to their credit.

Have you ever been to Frost? What is your favorite kind of doughnut? Mine is probably the maple bar. Classic, but delicous.

Thank goodness for a very sweet chai tea tonight otherwise I'd be salivating all over my keyboard right now just craving chocolate and other sweets. ;-)

Sweets to the sweetest,

I Didn't Know What to Say

This world is full of both wonderful and heartbreaking circumstances that wear us down daily. As a nation, we are mourning another tragedy where violence has torn apart communities and families - and for what purpose? We just don't know.
I didn't write on this yesterday because I didn't know what to say. I've read that it's the deadliest mass shooting in American history. I don't know what's more sad to me: that this deplorable act is something that I feel numb towards given the increasing numbers of shootings and tragedies we are seeing nationally, or the act itself: where some random person unbeknownst to even his own family made a decision that forever altered the lives of millions of people. 
The biggest encouragement and consolation I can try to provide is to continue to shine the light into the darkest corners of the world. Whether you emit joy and love, peace or kindness, these are a few ways to impact the world in a positive way that anybody can gi…

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…

Sacred Storytelling

Over the past year, I've begun to uncover my purpose in this life - what am I here for and how do I find fulfillment in that purpose? Is it ongoing or is it a one-time goal that I will eventually achieve? What then if that is the case?
There are so many questions to ponder and endless thoughts about the what-ifs and hypothetical future I could potentially have, based on the notion that I knew exactly what my purpose was, that is.
I've known that I'm meant to be a storyteller - that I am a writer and creator, but that alone didn't resonate with me or drive me to work towards any one goal of actually being those things. I already was those things, but there wasn't a sense of fulfillment from bestowing upon myself these titles. Works have been created, but to no real purpose or reason. The question is how to make this state of being something more tangible...more real.
It wasn't until a couple of weeks ago when I read an article about Reese Witherspoon who spok…
