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,

Blossoms & Light : A Pastel Photoshoot

How glorious are the delicate blossoms that sprout in the springtime? It is my most favorite thing about the arrival of springtime - the little pops of pink and white littering residential roads with tiny pastel petals after a gusty wind flow. 
A few weeks ago, inspiration sprung up at me while admiring the poppy pink trees on a drive through a windy country road. I was on my way to visit my sister with my DSLR camera in tow. Our plan was for me to practice portrait shots using my new 50 mm 1.8 f/s lens with her as my subject, and since I was still an hour and a half away, I called Stephie and asked if she knew of any blossoming cherry trees nearby for a chance of scenery. She didn't.
When I arrived, we drove around with our sights set upon finding the perfect setting. We found it serendipitously - in an almost-empty field at the local community college. It was perfect! A single tree with downy white petals bubbling around its dark branches, surrounded by emerald green grass and …

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…

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…
