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,

Creating Pockets of Adventures

Blessed. This is the perfect word to describe my life. While not everything goes in the direction I hope, nor does it ever happen in the ways I plan, it's mine and I have joy. More often than not, I face obstacles and sometimes rather painful experiences that I find to be overwhelming at times. All the same, I conquer. I have faith in a few things: a higher power, that higher power within me, and in myself. Faith always carries me through and has brought me to where I am.
I think my life to be somewhat average in many ways. I am not poor, but I am not wealthy. I can usually obtain the things I want if I plan for them and budget in most instances. However, I wasn't always affluent enough to afford small luxuries, such as my beloved Starbucks habit or my car. These two things would have exceeded my budget by far if I were 23-years-old again.  
Though, one thing that I am wealthy with is ambition. I've always been wealthy with ambition. If I want something, I find a way to m…

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…

Compassion

Months ago, I filmed a video about compassion and empathy. When I downloaded it to my computer, I didn't have the time or the drive to edit and upload it... until today. I re-watched the full 11:37 video and realized that my message was very clear and that it applies just as much to today as it did when I originally filmed it in November. 
Compassion. It's something that many people lack - not on purpose, but out of convenience. Out of carelessness. Without a thought. People aren't bad because of it, rather unaware and lacking mindfulness of who is around them and how they may be feeling.
I wanted to share this video as a reminder for people to view other people as humans - as people just like themselves. To have empathy and compassion because you just do not know what another person is going through.


Lovingly yours,
Em
