Last weekend was nonstop, which left no time to rest and recharge for another super busy week. I am definitely feeling the exhaustion and am so looking forward to a weekend of nothing. Romain and I are going to celebrate Valentine’s Day early with a special dinner at home. We’ve been planning the menu for about a month now and cannot wait. We received prints from our wedding this week so it will be the perfect moment to look at them together. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week Seven include a list of the best day trips to take from Paris, a salad recipe that includes croissants, a list of the best restaurants in Paris that I could’ve written – it even mentions Le Voltaire’s margarita, and a touching and funny article on French food markets. Enjoy!
