I’ve been trying to get into running lately. Definitely not aiming for the goal of a marathon or anything, I just think it’s a nice addition to my “get into wedding day shape” fitness routine – perfect for beautiful weekends. I’ve really been getting into running across the bridge to Manhattan, my first foray being prompted by a desire to consume a Sprinkles cupcake, guilt-free, for breakfast. When I finally made it, running and some walking, across the bridge, I felt pumped! I felt like I was floating on an exercise-high cloud – there wasn’t another day I could remember when the sky was so blue, the air so crisp, the sunshine so welcomingly warm. It was perfect, and so I decided I would try this again, and last week, I ran across again. This time to Laduree.
Even at 9:50am, 10 minutes before the store is set to open, there was a line!
I left the store with 2 boxes of macarons (surprises for a care package I was putting together for my Maids of Honor) and 2 single pieces (one for myself and one for Kel.)
When the packages arrived to their final destinations – my MOHs and I couldn’t have been more excited.

In the care package, I included the box of 6 macarons in a classic brown and gold box, and a viewmaster which I customized with several slides introducing them to the rest of the wedding party, and a few of their duties (which included reeling in my inner Bridezilla).
