Coming soon -- very soon, i.e., this Saturday, to NYC!  Our most favorite macaron place -- Laduree!  In NYC!  H and I had a knock-off macaron from Bottega Louie last week and thought it paled in comparison.  A colorful mushy lump instead of a perfectly crisp, deliciously chewy delight.  We'll likely be in NYC this fall and will have to brave the crowds of tourists to get our Parisian fix.  And nobody does packaging like Laduree --- nooooobody.

Fly-by Hello!

Wow, it's been a long time!  I haven't had a chance to get to do that much fun cooking or crafting lately because of work, but I thought I'd stop in.  H and I celebrated our one-year anniversary two months ago but I'm still aglow.  I'm a firm believer that you must celebrate occasions and H did not disappoint.  He surprised me the morning of our one-year with this:

A replica of my wedding bouquet!!
I danced a jig of joy when I saw it and we took an impromptu photoshoot with it all around our apartment.  Then it was off to Santa Barbara where we rented a tandem bicycle, rode past TWO weddings, and generally yukked it up.  We had a nice romantic dinner complete with delicious wine and headed back home.  It was wonderful and very "us."  We also exchanged paper gifts for our paper-anniversary but I'll share those later.
