Who else was pleasantly surprised to learn that June 7th is National Doughnut day?? I wish I had known to pick up a tasty treat on my way to work this morning. Back in New York one of my favorite spots for fried-and-doughy-decadence was Doughnut Plant... still looking to find a replacement here in D.C. (suggestions welcome!) In the meantime... some more doughnut inspired art to help you celebrate this most auspicious day.
