This weekend I’m doing a few of my very favorite things: shopping for holiday gifts, watching Christmas movies, and cooking. December is going to be nonstop for me so I’m enjoying these last few days. I’m actually writing Weekend Links Week 48 in advance again so I haven’t found as many articles as usual…but I might add some in at the last minute! I hope you enjoy.
I’m writing this from a café but can hardly wait to get home because my Christmas tree arrived this morning. The rest of my weekend will be dedicated to lighting and decorating the tree. I ordered the tree from my favorite florist so I haven’t seen it yet, but Romain says it’s the biggest yet – a good thing because my ornament collection keeps growing! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 47 include several lists of Paris hotspots, a piece about Americans in Paris with a cycling twist, and a tour of John Galliano’s Normandy home. Enjoy!
Even though we haven’t hit Thanksgiving, in my mind it’s already the most wonderful time of the year. It’s official because the Christmas lights in the streets are on in Paris which makes everything feel more magical. I haven’t seen any trees for sale yet, but the second I do it’ll be game over. The holiday season always goes by way too fast so I’m all for embracing it early. I really love Weekend Links Week 46. Some of my favorites include a list of Normandy hotspots, a tour of Hubert de Givenchy’s countryside estate, a classic French recipe for mini stuffed pumpkins – perfect for Thanksgiving, and a dreamy list of some lavish candles. Enjoy!
I’ve been back in Dallas this week visiting my family which has been great. My focus has been on seeing family and friends, eating lots of Mexican food and following the dogs around the house for lots of snuggles. I’m especially excited for Weekend Links Week 45 because I really have no idea what’s been going on in France. I hope you enjoy the links as much as I do!
October flew by. It was such a fun, busy and beautiful month that felt very “normal” for the first time in a long time. The bright blue sky is gone and the rain seems to have settled in at least for a bit, which is a reminder that winter is coming. Holiday decorations are already starting to appear and I personally can’t wait. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 44 include a look at Karl Lagerfeld’s Rue des Saints-Pères apartment, festive Champagne punch recipes, several Paris apartment tours, and a list of 19 luxury hotels for literary buffs. Enjoy!
