One item on our To-do list while we were down south was to visit Krispy Kreme donuts. Having attended college in Florida for two years, I had already been introduced to the fried treats, but Nate had never been.
Yeah, I knew that we had to remedy that situation.
The donuts were as airy and light as I remembered them.
They’re very different than Dunkin Donuts, which serves more cake-like donuts. Krispy Kreme donuts are so fluffy and almost melt-in-your mouth.
I ate my donut and then announced, “That was some sweet air!” 😉
Next on the agenda was to visit Mount Vernon, which served as home to George and Martha Washington.
It was pretty amazing to see the house that our nation’s first president had called home.
But mainly, I was impressed by the man himself. I’m not a history buff like Nate is (although I do enjoy learning about specific time-periods of history), and I tend to get bored at museums quite quickly. (I’m not proud of that fact, but sadly it’s true).
That being said, I was captivated by George Washington and the great man he was.
He had such strong faith, and his love of country was unmatched. So I was actually intrigued by everything I read; and maybe for the first time ever, I actually really enjoyed the museums we walked through!
And I left with the realization that although he died — and is buried at — Mount Vernon, George Washington continues to influence and challenge people today. Because I was definitely challenged to be a better person.
“George Washington, they just don’t make them like you anymore. But how our country could use someone like you today!”
