John, my roommate from senior year, surprised me last week with a belated birthday gift! He told me that he was going to surprise me sometime after my birthday but didn’t tell me when my package was going to arrive. I know I’m a difficult person to shop for but John found something perfect for me – macarons! First, a reminder of who John is – Angie, John, me and my mom during my engagement party:
So at work on Wednesday, I received two calls from John and I thought something was wrong because I missed both calls. It turns out that they couldn’t deliver my present because my super wasn’t at home! Eventually they delivered it and I saw the package when I arrived home that night! I love macarons because they’re so delicious and delicate and because they always have the most beautiful packaging:
And the macarons from Macaron Cafe are also incredibly gorgeous:
The flavors: coconut, chocolate, vanilla, mocha, Earl Grey, matcha green tea, rose lychee, cassis, orange blossom, rose, and blackberry. They all have a hint of iridescence and are (almost too) beautiful to eat!
Thank you, John, for the thoughtful and delicious birthday gift!
