It’s been another incredibly busy week. Looking back I’m not sure I even posted a single Instagram story, which is probably a first for me in a while. While the days have mostly been filled with work (I’m so thrilled to be helping so many of you with 2023 trips to France), there have also been opportunities for fun, including two excellent dinners with friends. This weekend is going to be a relaxing one so we can rest up for the week ahead. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week Five include a look at Paris’s high-jewelry collections, a meal Ina Garten can’t miss in Paris, an incredible auction of Jacques Garcia’s collection, and a piece on an 82 year-old traveling alone in France. Enjoy!
