Happy Macaron Day! C’est le jour du macaron!

Today is the day!

Le Jour du Macaron is finally here! After work, it’s off to Pierre Hermé I go! “Un don, un macaron” (a donation, a macaron) is the slogan chez PH, as they are raising money for Vaincre la Mucoviscidose, an organization that raises money for cystic fibrosis research.

Here are a few pictures to get you stoked on your future macaron(s) on this special day! Personally, I think it should be a national holiday, but I will take a nice macaron whenever I can get one! Lovelovelove these delicious French desserts!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Xx PatriciaParisienne
