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?
