First day jitters.

January 12, 2015

My daughter in law was accepted into the BSN program at the Univ of Tx Arlington, (UTA). She, much like myself spent most of our life in rural East Tx & can occassionally be a bit intimidated by the hussle & bustle of metropolitans. I was dearly touched when she asked if I would accompany her to her nursing programs orientation at UTA. In being overly cautious, I got us to the university an hour early. The jitters kept building, in myself as well, sympathetically. Having done my research before our arrival, I knew a Krispy Kreme was in the area. Out of nervoys desperation I said, "Heather pull up the nearest Krispy Kreme on your phone". She smiled, found it & said "1 mile straight ahead". We were tickled to find it ! It was her VERY FIRST time & she LOVED them. Her jitters were melted away as she described with delight how the doughnuts "just melt in your mouth"! She was so impressed she even video'd the doughnuts getting bathed in glaze. It was just what we both needed. Thank you Krispy Kreme for being such a tasty respite. I'm a proud MIL to a new Krispy Kreme fan :)
