(Wow, three posts in a week? I think I’m getting better at this!)
Yesterday was my birthday and though I hate to make a big deal out of the day, it always amazes me how…amazing and thoughtful people are. I am so incredibly lucky to have such great and loving people around me. Thank you very much, merci beaucoup, and muchas graçias. You know who you are.
Aside from it being my birthday on November 2nd, it is also All Soul’s Day a.k.a ‘The Day of the Dead’. This always FREAKED ME OUT as a kid because my mom told me that back home, families actually visit their deceased relatives in the graveyards on this day and stay the whole night. Now, I just find it supremely ironic that I was born on a day devoted to all the departed…Isn’t that kind of fishy?
Though I can’t claim to be Luxirare, scroll down my friends, and bear witness to my closeup shots of food! And other stuff!
These colorful French macarons, given to me by Amanda, are from a Japanese-inspired patisserie called La Bamboche which makes unique, exotic desserts from Japanese ingredients such as yuzu, ume & sake, and roasted yam. The four macarons below are Spicy Cocoa, Yuzu, Mint Chocolate, and Lavender.
