Weekend Links: Week 45

We’re jumping ahead to Weekend Links Week 45 after I took a couple of weeks off. Our trip home felt like the quickest two weeks ever and I wish we had more time, although I am excited to be back in Paris for my favorite time of year here. The colors are vivid and gorgeous (when it isn’t raining) and all of the holiday decorations are starting to go up. This week I have two very exciting personal updates to share exclusively with members which I’m looking forward to. Some of my favorites from this week include an essay about a different kind of summer in Paris, a guide to speaking like a local in Paris, French recipes from Anthony Bourdain perfect for Thanksgiving or during the holidays and a look at a Paris wedding that has me reminiscing on our wedding weekend. Enjoy!
