Bonjour from the Côte d’Azur! Weekend Links Week 23 is an abbreviated edition as I haven’t been able to sit on my computer for more than a few minutes at a time – it’s just been too beautiful! I will be sure to recap exactly where we went and what we did on this trip for members (this week the April Recap finally went live – which features a Paris restaurant we still haven’t stopped talking about). Enjoy!

April 2023 Recap

April in Paris really does live up to the hype. After what seemed like an incredibly long winter, we were ready to get out and enjoy spring. We went to a lot of new restaurants, some new, some old, and others that we revisited after a long pause. There was one new restaurant that particularly stood out, and that we haven’t stopped talking about nearly two months later. Milder temperatures helped me get back into my weekend brocante swing. I’m sharing my regular favorite, as well as how to find others that “pop up” over the weekend. Read on to discover where I ate and drank, shopped, and what I did in the April 2023 recap.

It was another busy week trying to get ahead on work before taking next week off for the most part. I’m so excited to spend time with family and friends and get in a little time on the Côte d’Azur as well. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 22 include how to make the most out of the French Open, a guide to Marseille, and a look at both Tina Turner and Henri Matisse’s homes on the Riviera. Enjoy!

It was a gorgeous week in Paris and I especially looked forward taking breaks from work on Boomer’s walks. We had yet another four day week with a holiday on Thursday. The short weeks in May have been such a treat. Next week is going to be a bit of a reality check as we’re back to a five day work week. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 21 include Kelly Wearstler’s design-focused travel guide to Paris, a French pharmacist’s six skin tips, and a look inside the Dior spa at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Enjoy!

After another rainy week in Paris we will hopefully be leaving the clouds and chilly temperatures far behind. I have a lot to accomplish in the next couple of weeks before a series of summer visitors start to arrive. My brother comes at the end of the month and we’re planning a quick trip to the Côte d’Azur. It’s one of my favorite times to visit the area and I can hardly wait. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 20 include a list of dreamy South of France destinations (that I’ve forwarded to my brother), a list off the 10 best croissants in Paris, and a look at a gorgeous wedding in France. Enjoy!
