Macarons

Macarons

As the summer started, I made a goal to try at least one new type of food during my time away from school. After seeing photo after photo on Instagram of these beautiful desserts, I decided to join the macaron craze. We bought a box of six, with each color representing a unique flavor like rose, raspberry, and pistachio. As I bit into the cookie, I was surprised at the complementary mix of soft and crunchy, airy and gooey.

Also – writing this post is making me want to go home just to get another box!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

In an attempt to check off as many sites as we could from our “To See” list, our first day at Yellowstone was quite jam-packed. By the time we saw most of the geysers and hot springs, we arrived at Old Faithful just as the sun was setting.

In this light, the scene was even more beautiful than it had looked in the promotional maps and brochures that decorate the park’s visitor centers. When I couldn’t quite capture a picture that I liked of the geyser erupting, I saw these two kids sitting on a bench, watching the pretty sight in front of them.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
