Macaroon Metaphor


I took this photo 2 years ago of a truly French macaroon whilst I was in France.

It reminds me a bit of life.. There’s a beginning and an end… And a filling. The outsides are sometimes fluffy but often have hard hard bits, but towards the center it gets chewy and sweeter. I’m learning that life isn’t always sweet and tasty.. It often has bits of filling that had to get beaten up and squished in to a piping bag, and piped through a sharp piping nozzle in to being. Every macaroon is also a different flavour… We all walk a different journey! Don’t look at someone else and go, I want his / her pistachio-ness…

Unless you are willing to WALK the journey that got the flavour – you can’t just HAVE the flavour! My ‘flavour’ has come at a high cost! Also remember, you are a certain ‘flavour’ for a certain reason! Imagine if one only got chocolate macaroons?! We need the pistachio, peanut butter, strawberry, lemon flavours etc





Lattes & Love: Episode 3

imageHere is the third episode of my Lattes & Love series. Not only is Deirdre an inspiring woman but she is a family friend. I have seen how loving and patient she is with her daughter, Hope. Check out the foundation that they have started to help other children who are disabled.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this series ( it has often been tough and painful to hear of these womens’ trials) but getting to share a cup of coffee and life stories with amazing women is a highlight! I hope the stories are leaving a mark in your heart.

Love and blessings
