MacAttack 11 ... a round-up of a Childhood Summer!

"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again."
Elizabeth Lawrence

Long ago and far away, we were once children, carefree, playing games, splashing in the waves or delighted by surprises. The memories of these joyous, enchanted days weave in and out of our minds, brought about by a smell, a sound, a chance encounter with an old friend. Vacation times were special, not only because the business of school could be put aside and forgotten, but because homework was replaced by hours and days of play, of special treats and magical trips. We look back on those times with fondness, nostalgia and a tinge of regret for the innocence of those olden days and our fairytale-like vision of the world.

This month's Mac Challenge asked you to delve into your memories, close your eyes and conjure up images of those days of family holiday trips, days spent at some special summer spot or some hidden, wonderful, private joy from times long gone and wrap it all up in powered sugar and culinary fancy and create your own special Childhood Summer Memory Macarons.
