This week marked the beginning of the very busy holiday season for me. Thinking about all that I have to do is a bit overwhelming, but also exciting because it truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and being in Paris decked out for the holidays is always magical. I’m making a point to do as many different holiday-themed activities as possible (which I’ll be sharing with members) and the first on the list is tomorrow. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 47 include a sweet reunion with a WWII Veteran and a French woman 78 years later, photos of the most beautiful churches in Paris, a recipe for a decadent take on a croque monsieur, and the best French Trader Joe’s products ranked by a French person. Enjoy!

It was another short week in France which I always appreciate. We are spending the long weekend in Normandy which is always such a treat, but especially so when the weather is uncharacteristically warm and sunny for mid-November. It’s such a wonderful place to escape to and I’ll share exactly what we did with members soon. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 46 include a feature on Didier Ludot, a look inside a château used in ‘Lupin,’ and a list of great Airbnbs in France. Enjoy!

Tuesday was a holiday in France which threw my entire schedule off, but also made the week go by quickly. It was an exciting week with lots of fun announcements including the return of Paris Christmas walks, my new memberships, and a limited edition vintage French Christmas collection. Tis the season! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 45 include a lovely feature on my friend Latrice who is behind Paris Chic Code, a look inside the recently reopened Cartier boutique in Paris, and tributes to Julie Powell. Enjoy!

I had an absolutely packed but great week. It’s so hard to believe that it will be November on Tuesday (especially when it’s been 75 degrees in Paris all week). A lot of fun projects I’ve been working on this fall will be announced on Monday to newsletter subscribers first – so make sure you’re on the list! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 44 include a tour of a restored French château, an article on Madame du Barry, Champagne “rules” to follow, and a look at renovation of a hotel purchased on leboncoin (the French version of Craigslist). Enjoy!

I’m back in Paris after a quick but wonderful trip home to Dallas. Next week is going to be busy before we gear up for an overdue trip to Normandy. I can’t wait and am plotting more weekend trips this fall and winter. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 43 include a look inside the Louis Vuitton ranch in Texas, photos and a lovely description of a French countryside wedding and a Left Bank apartment tour. Enjoy!
