E knows the way to my heart <3

Today is one of the most celebrated days of the year in my house. My obsession with donuts can be traced back to when I was a little kid.  Just ask my parental units!

My favorite donuts are jelly donuts, though I do love a good glazed donut as well.

Whenever I visit a new place I make sure to research bakeries and donuts in advance. When we were in Japan in January, I made E trek all the way to Mister Donut for a quick sweet treat!  In the last year or so I have started the #agirlandherdonut photo series. Check it out on Facebook and Instagram @jljay.

Hope you are celebrating wherever you are and that you are eating a delicious donut!
