I’m not going to lie, last week really took it out of me. I gave a mini-update earlier this week, but between a trek from Paris to get vaccinated (worth it) and almost more work than I can handle (which I’m incredibly grateful for) I was absolutely exhausted by mid-week. I’m so looking forward to a relaxing, fun weekend! I think Weekend Links Week 24 is a fun one too. A few of my favorites include a piece on Little Lady Liberty’s journey from France to the US, a list of nine beautiful villages in the south of France, more on the stunning new hotel literally inside the Château de Versailles, and a beautiful Parisian apartment tour. I hope you enjoy!
