While it’s not a holiday weekend in France I’m definitely pretending that it is one. I’ve decorated my window boxes with all sorts of red, white and blue. Hopefully my French neighbors don’t mind since we share the same colors after all, although I did take inspiration from Clark W. Griswold. I have a fun weekend planned which will culminate with some of my favorite American foods on the Fourth of July. My favorites from Weekend Links Week 27 include 10 inspiring quotes from The Little Prince, looking back on 60 years of Diptyque, a piece on why the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc still fascinates today, and a very good Paris guide. Enjoy!
