I’m feeling a bit nostalgic for spring, probably because that’s what the weather has felt like. I think the rain is going away and the temperatures are going up next week, fingers crossed! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 32 include the history of the Louis Vuitton trunks, a fabulous list of places to stay in Saint Tropez, a good list of things to know before traveling to Paris, café gourmands at five different Parisian cafés and more! I hope you enjoy.
