I have a friend visiting for a few days. He is being the perfect houseguest: cleaning up after himself, preparing food for dinner, and this morning even staggering out of bed at an ungodly hour to make me breakfast because he knew that I had to start the day super early.
Today when I got home from work, he had all the ingredients for dinner prepared and ready to cook, and a small but exquisite gift for me.
I don't know if you are familiar with Laduree - it is very famous company based in Paris that makes macaroons. In Geneva we are fortunate enough to have a Laduree shop, and my friend had bought me the elegant and colourful gift of a box of macaroons.
Opening the box was a ritual, slowly appreciating the beauty of the packaging, the elegant ribbons and then revealing the gem bright colours of the macaroons tucked within.
These lovely sweets inspired my friend and I to have a frenzy of photography, arranging and rearranging them. 100 photographs later, we were now faced with the challenge of trying to decide which photos to share with you!
