cherry blossoms

it's 11:10 PM and the wind is howling like crazy. is it the same for you or is it just in markham?
a week from now and john will be on his way to new york. it will be sad, but he needs to do what he needs and wants to do. i just need to be patient and to keep trusting that everything will fall into place. i must admit that i am excited for him. it's the type of thing that you watch in movies. :)
but ah, enough emo-ness. we finally got to experience the much talked about (and photographed!) cherry blossoms. we started the day at ikea teehee and watched chloe.
BLARGH. we didn't know that it was going to be THAT bad, but knowing that it was an atom egoyan film should have given it away. never again.
to remedy the failed motion picture experience, we walked to petite thuet and bought macarons. their macarons are so much better than the ones i got from la bamboche. they were perfect: a nice little outer crust and chewy inside. my favorite is rosewater. the girl at the cafe even tied a little ribbon around the box ("purple or blue?" could i have pink please? ha.) we took the train to high park and followed the crowds.
if you haven't gone, you should. it is so beautiful. it looked snow. light pink snow. and everyone there just looked so happy.

have a great week everyone.

a canopy of pink loveliness.

i will miss this old man.

rosewater, hazelnut and salted caramel.
sigh. i can eat them all day.

macaron-shaped heart.

macaron toast. we toast to everything. even chopsticks.

john's very first macaron experience.

These pictures are so, so pretty! I'm glad you made it to see the cherry blossoms. It was definitely a highlight of my past few weeks -- and now I really want to try Petit Thuet! I have been meaning to for a while.

I'm glad you liked my Hoof Cafe pictures! I took those with my Lomo L-CA+. It's my favourite camera at the moment!
