SurpRise

 Some of the sweetest finds can often be found in the most unexpected places. Saturday morning, my friend Nancy and I were getting ready to look at a few houses in Durham. Before our tour, we decided to stop and visit Rise Biscuits and Donuts which opened near Southpoint Mall in Durham.  These guys have hit a home run. Really, really, insanely delicious donuts and biscuits they're cranking out by the 1000's! If you're thinking there won't be a wait if you get there early, or late, or in the off hours... think again. But don't worry, the line moves quickly and it's sooooo worth it!
