Katye and I were both Atlanta girls but we actually met while learning French in Quebec. Katye has a special gift for telling stories so when she posted a storytelling event on facebook in which she was participating, I jumped at the chance to go and hear her in person again.
Storytelling is a unique cultural event, one which is not as celebrated in our culture as it might have once been. With that disclaimer, I asked my friend Jen if she wanted to go with me. She agreed and then later confessed that since I had gone to the opera with her, she thought she could try something different with me. I had kind of forgotten I was as cultured as the opera! Do I have to confess my true feelings about the opera? Let's just say that storytelling ranks higher up my list of enjoyable activities. In fact, I would highly recommend a storytelling festival to anyone. In a world where it is difficult to find books, tv shows or movies that are excellent and free of swearing, innuendo and violence, these storytellers stood out. Their stories were clean, interesting and many made me laugh out loud!

After the storytelling and a visit with Katye and her new husband at Chic-fil-A, Jen suggested a spontaneous trip to Krispy Kreme. Using her handy dandy little Krispy Kreme phone app she could actually tell that the donuts were "Hot Now." What is the world coming to?
Watching the donuts roll off the line...this one's for our friend Amy, a true donut enthusiast.
Last up in this little line up is a cheerful little card that one lucky reader will be receiving any day now to pass on to someone they know who needs a little encouragement.
And thus ends the post that was brought to you by the sound of /k/.
