Links I Love Week 15

It is a long weekend and also my birthday weekend, my birthday is officially Monday. It seems strange to celebrate at home in Chicago after being on a plane or in Paris the last couple of years. It will be a very quiet birthday and maybe even a little snow. I hope you enjoy the long weekend no matter where you are and stay safe and healthy. Enjoy this weekend’s links with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and get lost for a bit.

  1. Happy Belated Birthday Rebecca and many more. I so look forward to the blog and all of your recommendations.. Hope you celebrate later with friends and family. xo

    • Thank you, Sue! I hope you are staying well and healthy. I will continue the birthday celebrations once I can see my friends and family. I miss them so much.


  2. Bonjour Rebecca! Happy belated anniversaire! In this weeks email you were looking for a good carrot cake recipe. I have been using the Triple Layer Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting from Bon Appetit for 20 years – it’s so good. This year I used it to make carrot cake muffins for Easter breakfast – they turned out just as delicious as the cake.
    Thank you for your posts – loved the one about Place Dauphine, beautiful photos of a magical spot it Paris.

    • Bonjour Charlotte,

      Thank you so much! I can’t wait to check it out and try it this weekend. I will keep you posted how it goes 🙂

      Keep in touch xo
