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!

This week I’ve been home in Dallas for the first time since January 2020 which is pretty wild to think about. It’s been busy but it’s great to be home and really doesn’t feel like time has passed at all, which I’m sure is the same feeling people have had after returning to France. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France includes a beautiful book from Buly, the Cire Trudon Christmas candle collection, a new coffee shop in Paris and more. Enjoy!

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!
