Eight years ago when we moved half way across the country to an area that felt like the middle of nowhere to us, we had no idea how many challenges we would face and how many things we would miss.
We lived there long enough to feel at home, we made many great friends, and found a church we loved. But every once in a while we would miss things we had grown up with. Simple things but knowing they weren't available seemed to make us crave them more. Things like the soda; Kutztown Birch Beer or the only cheese curls that we liked, the sandwiches from Sheetz and a whole host of other things. But there was one thing we had never had until we moved there and that was Krispy Kreme donuts. It was love at first bite.
After we moved back two years ago we revelled in all the things we used to have and life was great except for one little thing. There were no Krispy Kremes.
Yesterday LV happened to drop his cell phone and shattered the screen so last night we went to get it replaced and decided to do our weekly grocery run in the same trip making it more fun since it wasn't in the same town we do most of our shopping.
As I pushed the cart around the corner of the dairy aisle my breath caught at the beautiful sight in front of me. A stand loaded with real Krispy Kreme donuts. After two years since I had one I simply had to get a box full of my favorites. After we got home I slowly ate one and I finally felt complete.
