So, in case you’ve been living under a rock for the last month, Tuesday was my 30th birthday. We celebrated by going to look at a van (ugh, don’t get me started on my thoughts on THAT), and we ate sushi from my favorite place after the kiddos wen to bed. Not a bad day, overall, with the exception of that van thing making me feel monumentally older than 30…
I’m a dessert girl. Always have been. My mom used to tell me I was going to turn into a sugar cube. (No, my teeth are not rotten, and I’m not morbidly obese. I just like sweet.) So birthdays always meant getting my favorite sweets. Used to be birthday cake, then it became birthday pie, now… Macarons are my absolute utter favorite dessert, and the only place I can get them in this podunk town are frozen ones at Wal Mart. (YUCK!) I have been promised a real, honest-to-goodness Kitchen Aid mixer for my birthday so I can make my own macarons, but that whole van thing might put a delay on that. We’ll see. Anyway, since I couldn’t get real macarons for my birthday, I decided to color myself some.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve had an issue with this adorable Bonjour set from Avery Elle for awhile. I just couldn’t find a layout I liked for these little macarons. That is, until I found this beautiful image on Pinterest. I loved the beautiful bokeh background. It was just perfect for that darling little stack of sweetness. So, I set out to make my own.
Also, now that it’s officially October, I’m allowing myself to start creating Christmas goodies. Stay tuned!! 🙂
