Weekend Links: Week 17

weekend links week 17 louis vuitton place vendome

This weekend we are celebrating one year with Boomer. It’s hard to believe we picked him up a year ago and how much he’s grown. Now he’s 70 plus pounds of love and we couldn’t imagine life without him. It’s looking pretty rainy for the next few days, but maybe finally towards the end of the week the warmer weather will stick. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 17 include the story behind Karl Lagerfeld’s ponytail, a tour of a French country home in the Loire Valley, and a sweet list of quotes from “The Little Prince.” Enjoy!
