Today was an excellent day. Today still is an excellent day.
Despite burning my tongue on scalding hot Krispy Kreme coffee this morning, despite realizing I left my bike at my relatives’ house thirty minutes outside of Atlanta (yep), despite spilling aforementioned coffee all over a new shirt after that realization, it’s been a fantastic day.
This morning I continued our family tradition of getting a hot Krispy Kreme donut right before leaving town for a few relaxing days in Jekyll Island – a beautiful island off the coast of South Georgia with tons of bike paths and overhanging, ancient trees. I got to Krispy Kreme just in time for a donut right off the line (win!), and had a beautiful five hour drive to the coast. I listened to Iron & Wine all the way through two lane highways lined with pine trees, and rolled down the windows to smell the ocean and damp spanish moss. After checking in to the hotel, I took my bike right out (I drove back to get it) and went for a ride around the island, through the historic district, and got caught in two separate thunderstorms. It was a great ride, but I had to stow away my room key and iPhone in my sports bra because of the torrential downpour. (Perks of being a girl) I got back to the room sopping wet, tired, and so happy. And now I get to have this Tart Lychee. Since I didn’t think ahead and bring a glass with me, it’s in a hotel plastic cup, but nevertheless, it’s still great.
Like I said, excellent day.
Now, I don’t think I’m in any position to make specific observations about a beer because of the Krispy Kreme coffee situation, but I do hope you get to try this someone. Because even with limited taste buds, it’s delightful.
As a parting note, I have a guest post up over at The Midwestern Man about being a gentleman, and I hope you’ll check it out. I’m really excited about it: (1) because The Midwestern Man is a great blog in general, so I was super stoked when they asked for a guest post (2) it’s the first time I’ve written a post about something specifically other than beer or baking and (3) gentlemen are just plain awesome.
