You are probably reading the title and thanking, "what the heck?" Yeah, it's kinda weird, but it is a perfect pun for what I am thankful for today.
For those of you who know me, you know that I DO NOT get up early for very many things. One thing that I do get up for, is doughnuts. I mean who doesn't love doughnuts? I have leaned that the earlier you get up, the hotter and more fresh they are. After my adventure in Denver, I made my way to the mountains and in hopes of beating the snow storm, I was forced to wake up at 5:30 AM. I REPEAT AM.
|| makes me sick just thinking about it TBH ||
Various people have told me about this delicious doughnut place in Denver called "Vodoo Doughnuts" and so I made a deal. If I was getting up that early, I was getting doughnuts! So at 6 something this morning my doughnut life was forever changed. OHMYGOSH the amount of doughnuts they had and the differnt flavors... It was unbelievable. You name it, they had it! My personal favorite was the "Oh Caption My Caption!" This was a Caption Crunch Doughnut. I am thankful for this sweet treat that started out my day just right. If you ever are in Denver make your way to Vodoo. You won't regret it!
My second favorite thing from today was the snow. I love snow, but being in the south I don't ever see much real snow! Therefore, I love any opportunity to play in real snow. Today, I got that opportunity again! It snowes the whole way up the mountain, which was difficult, but once we got to the destination, being snowed in become fun! I got my GoPro and took to videoing/capturing the day that was today. The snow was literally up to my knees and I loved every minute of it. The pictures below, of course, don't do the day Justice, but they will give you some idea. God is so great. He makes beautiful doughnuts and he makes beautiful places. I am extremely thankful for this opportunity and time in my life. The cold may be chilly, but my heart is sure warm! Find thanks in the everything beautiful because God made it that way for a reason. I am thankful that I regonized this just in time! You should do the same! Do you want a doughnut now?
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A recent graduate from Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
