Weekend Links: Week 25

After a busy week and with rain in the forecast this weekend in Paris I’m looking forward to spending a time at home doing not much of anything. Weekend Links Week 25 is a bigger edition in case you’re spending a little extra time at home this weekend as well. Some of my favorites include an article about Costco France’s giant pallets of baguettes, photos of Julia Child captured by Paul, the silent star of the French Open (the clay), and a round-up of all the new grand châteaux opening in France this summer. I hope you enjoy!

Weekend Links: Week 24

I’m not going to lie, last week really took it out of me. I gave a mini-update earlier this week, but between a trek from Paris to get vaccinated (worth it) and almost more work than I can handle (which I’m incredibly grateful for) I was absolutely exhausted by mid-week. I’m so looking forward to a relaxing, fun weekend! I think Weekend Links Week 24 is a fun one too. A few of my favorites include a piece on Little Lady Liberty’s journey from France to the US, a list of nine beautiful villages in the south of France, more on the stunning new hotel literally inside the Château de Versailles, and a beautiful Parisian apartment tour. I hope you enjoy!

Weekend Links: Week 23

Weekend Links Week 23 is here! The most exciting news of the week is undoubtedly that France is officially reopening to tourists on June 9th. I can’t wait, but will also be savoring every last moment of Paris as it is currently. I’m sure it’s something I’ll never experience again in my lifetime, and as difficult as it’s been at times it really is unimaginably gorgeous. Some of my favorite articles from this week include an upcoming exhibit of Normandy through David Hockney’s eyes, the 10 best cheese shops in Paris, a tour of a literal Parisian dream home, how to properly clean champagne glasses and more. Enjoy!

Weekend Links Week 22 is here along with the sun in Paris. I’m taking a French class on Saturday but am otherwise spending the weekend outdoors. Some of my favorite articles from this week include an article about a 200-year-old (still drinkable) bottle of wine that was meant for Napoleon, a recipe for a French twist on a Caesar salad, a list of the best terraces hidden in Parisian courtyards and more. I hope you enjoy!
