Hello everyone! ♥
Long time no see! I am finally back from a five day trip to Paris. It was beautiful, nostalgic, and lovely...but I am very much so glad to be back in my Florence! I have LOADS of photos to share with you all and it's kind of overwhelming...so I thought first I post a little about a smaller trip I did to Laduree.
I've wanted a Laduree macaroon since I first heard about them years ago. I don't even think there are any shops in Ohio, so it was a slim chance I could ever get to try one. I was really annoying, too, and would see macaroons all sorts of places but never wanted to try my FIRST one until it was a Laduree macaroon.
They don't disappoint. We went to the original store and it was impeccably beautiful and ornate. The site of rainbow colored macaroons displayed behind the glass and the delicious pastries was enough to send me head over heels before even tasting one. I've wanted to try these forever, so this is my one thing I splurged on while in Paris. I got a box of six for 16 euro which isn't actually as bad as I thought it would be. Although all of them looked delicious, I chose Rose, Salted Carmel, Raspberry, Chocolate, Mint, and Coffee.
I ate the Rose one as my first macaroon ever and it was delicious. I was scared I might not like them because a lot of people say they aren't worth the hype, but I could pop macaroons in my belly one right after another. I saved the chocolate for last (hearing it was the best), waiting a few days trying to draw my purchase out longer. It definitely was the best, and now seriously can't wait to go get another one at the Laduree here in Florence!
Ahh, makes me smile just thinking about the experience. Dream come true! ♥
With much love, Lauren.
