Today I Wish . . .

Here is your sneak peak into the bathroom at Laduree…. HA!
Today I am wishing I was here!  It is utter craziness at my house.  Seriously, there are 8 cars at my house that do not belong to me.  Painters, construction, appliance repair, and cleaning people.  I am very happy that all of this is getting done but I’m dreaming of quieter days.
Anyways, I thought having a nice cup of tea and some gorgeous macaroons at Laduree sounded like a good idea!  I had the chance to visit Laduree last fall.  And I have to admit I didn’t even know what it was.  All I know is that I fell head over heels when I walked inside.  When I returned I found out how famous Laduree is.  Thankfully, I brought some very pretty boxes home with me and I’ve been dreaming about going back ever since.  And today seems like it would be a perfect day (well at least I can dream about it).  So let’s all meet for tea & macaroons this afternoon!
Funny thing is, I was picking out this top image and then headed over to Absolutely Beautiful Things , for my daily fix, and Anna had posted this exact picture with some lovely decorated rooms that resemble Laduree.  I guess it must just truly be a Laduree day!
PS- for some gorgeous Laduree eye candy visit Paris Breakfasts. Carol Gillott paints the most beautiful pictures of Laduree.

    Sign me up for the tea party! Those macaroons look too beautiful to eat, but I could be persuaded.

    I need to go back to France. I never went to Laduree when I was there, nor had I heard of it. It looks like heaven!!

    I was in Paris a few weeks ago, but tasted my first Laduree macaroon in London. I am addicted to the salted caramel flavor….
