While the weather continues to change, donuts are always in season. My healthy obsession with these round, glazed, cake, missing-their-center desserts transitions into the new year. As I continue to moderately indulge in these sweet treats, I am always on the hunt for an undiscovered donut shop to explore. This mission lead me to Aliso Coffee and Donuts in, well you guessed it, Aliso Viejo, California. This particular location is fabulous because the prices are amazing, but they are still serving creative flavors. My belly was so satisfied with the raspberry and blue berry cake donuts.
My donut fascination doesn’t end with just munching on these delightful bites of heaven, but I admit to wearing donut paraphernalia as a fashion trend. This beaded donut print sweater is Lauren Conrad from Kohl’s which I paired with my matching sea foam green J Brand denim, blush beanie, and tan peep-toe booties. I love mixing pastels together, especially as spring is approaching, but the weather is still chilly. While I am a fan of wearing colors together that don’t match but ‘go,’ I still find occasions such as this, that it is okay to be ‘matchy matchy.’
For the earth and every good thing in it belongs to the Lord and is yours to enjoy.
1 Corinthians 10:26
When I hear ‘every good thing’ in this verse, I believe this directly applies to donuts! God created everything on this earth, including dessert for us to enjoy, but this doesn’t mean it’s okay to overindulge in any one thing in particular. This helps me to remember that our bodies are on loan from the Lord, and we must take care of ourselves so that we can help take care of others. However, we are allowed to enjoy a treat that gets thrown our way!
Have a sweet week!
