That bright red “Hot Doughnuts Now” sign signaling that warm, melt-in-your-mouth, heavenly goodness is waiting fresh off the glazing racks at Krispy Kreme. I dropped by just this past Sunday and was so happy that to see that welcoming sign.
The light in my soul after having a taste of a simple glazed doughnut was just as bright as that sign, I assure you.
Red is my favorite color. The vibrancy, warmth and energy is irresistible. That may have something to do with my being an Aries as well (think: fire sign, ruled by Mars, the red planet).
While walking down a local street, I came across these energetic potted red flowers sitting in front of slightly worn, painted wooden steps leading to a charming Southern porch. How inviting they were in front of this quaint country home, as if to say, “come on up, rest your feet and have a cool glass of lemonade.” Just like good ol’ Southern hospitality – being warm and welcoming to unknown visitors.
I didn’t quite stop and smell the flowers, but it sure was nice to stop and smile at them, returning their kind greeting.
