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!
