My most exciting plans for this weekend are Saturday night dinner with Dalton, and I can’t wait! Other than that I’m just going to catch up on some work and prepare for the always dreaded visa renewal appointment next week. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week Four include a list of 19 restaurants to try in Paris, an interview with 100 year-old “it girl” Françoise Gilot, a list of the 100 best French movies of all time, and a sweet (and sad) story of love and a cherry tree in France. Enjoy!
