Weekend Links: Week Two

weekend links week two louvre golden light

This weekend we are in the Alps for a long weekend of skiing. I have to admit, I thought I’d never ski again after an accident when I was younger, but I suppose it’s a lesson in never saying never. Romain adores skiing and it’s a very popular winter activity in France so I figured it’s time to get on board. One of my very favorite parts about living in France is we can get on a train and be practically anywhere in the country in about four hours. There really is so much to see and do here, and if you’re planning on visiting I would love to help you plan your trip. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week Two include a feature on my favorite Rue du Bac, a list of cookbooks everyone should own, and 25 Julia Child quotes. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Erin, I’m so sorry to hear that and haven’t heard about anyone else having issues. Have you tried using a different browser? Sometimes my Google Chrome doesn’t function correctly if it isn’t updated. Let me know if that helps!
