Camping and Macaroons.

Happy Tuesday friends! How was your weekends? I had an amazing weekend camping with my husband. It was so refreshing being away from technology and people and spending time in our beautiful country, which I often take for granted. We spotted so many wild animals, it was crazy! 3 different bear sightings alone made me a happy girl.

We actually ended up coming home a day early (but still pretended to be gone, hence no blog post yesterday). On Monday we spent the day in Vancouver where I was determined to try a macaroon for the first time! They have been everywhere in the blog world for the past couple of years and I still had yet to try one. I googled until I found a bakery who sold them. Unfortunately, they only sold pre-made mini macaroons (no big ones) – but maybe that was a good thing, as I was able to try many different flavours. They were quite delicious, light, airy and very sweet! But I am told that no macaroons can compare to the famous Laduree ‘Les Macarons’. Until one day when I get to Paris, I suppose I will have to dream. Do any of you know a good local place to get macaroons?

    Although I can’t recommend any places to get macaroons I can recommend some great camping and athletic gear. For quality apparel perfect for outdoor adventures, try the moisture wicking t-shirts and from the Wickers clothing company. Their items are high quality, durable, and comfortable. Check out their site to learn more or purchase these and other affordable, specialty products visit their online store at http://www.wickers.com.
