Hearts, Kisses and Macarons

Vday Main 2February can be a very grey time of the year, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to create this fun and festive Valentine’s day style story with Cee, from Coco & Vera. We were invite to Parisian Cafe, Faubourg Bakery in downtown Vancouver to enjoy an afternoon of tea and Valentine’s Day treats.

We were treated to the most decadent selection of Valentine’s Day themed goodies, available at Faubourg throughout the month of February. I loved the Linzer cookies that instantly brought me back to my grandmother’s baked goods, and how cute (and instagramable) is the heart-shaped macaron?!

We are both lucky to have incredible men in our lives, who love us dearly. Besides being great partners in life, they also help us both a lot with our blogs and projects. We could not do what we do without their support. (Shout out to Ian, Cee’s husband for taking these beautiful photos for us!)

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I’m sending Love to YOU for reading my blog, and showing you support. Every reader makes a difference, and I’m grateful to have you apart of my community xocv_160202_93_24800571546_o
