Parisian Surprise

Yesterday I received a special little gift from Paris! A beautiful box of Ladurée macarons. If you haven't heard of (or tasted) these little treats, they are from a fabulously famous and historical bakery at 16 rue Royale in Paris founded in 1862. They are "the" quintessential macarons. I kicked myself for the longest time since I never got to try them when I was there a few years back. In all seriousness, the box is so gorgeous I can't even bring myself to recycle it. Such beautiful presentation and a lovely treat. Thanks, Audrey!
