Links I Love Week 25

June 21 is Fête de la Musique in France. I have been lucky to be in France for the last two years for this event. I was in Antibes for one year and Nice the following year. It is a fun celebration and the cities are so lively. Read about where to celebrate in Paris here and you can celebrate at home with your own party and playlist.
