This weekend we are in Normandy and I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ve missed it so much and can’t even begin to describe how nice it feels to be out of Paris, if only for a weekend, after almost eight straight months. Weekend Links Week 17 has lots of articles that I hope you’ll enjoy reading. Some of my favorites include how you can rent Claude Monet’s Giverny house on Airbnb, a piece on the lost art of coffee drinking, how to buy a house in Normandy, and timeless vintage photos of Grace Kelly’s wedding to Prince Rainier III.
