I have been remiss in posting and in thanks, so here is a long overdue blog to Joy Schultz who was inspired to go out an make some macarons and then send them to me for some feedback. She, however, did not commit the fateful wax paper mistake that effectively destroyed my macarons, and so hers were perfect. I think they are by far the best ones I have had since leaving France. She followed this recipe, used my chocolate ganache recipe for some, and then improvised a delicious orange butter-cream filling for some others. These pictures don’t give justice to how beautiful they were, and the raspberry ones aren’t even shown because I devoured them before I could even think to snap a picture. Thanks Joy!

Lately, on InstagramWe started out like everyone does, waxing poetic to our realtors about our big dreams. But the reality of house hunting smashes those dreams until you clarify your priorities, simplify them down to the very short list of things you won’t live without. For us it was space to grow and play and serve. And light. While there are things we had to let go along the way, dreams that had to change, we are living in that constant light.Henry spent the day using aquatic monikers for us both, as in, “hey Big Fish- Little Fish needs to snuggle,” and “Big Shark, can you push Little Shark in the stroller?” It was both deeply strange, and highly endearing, a combo that sums up so much of having kids. His imagination plus these sunny blooms is making my Monday bright.
