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!
