Links I Love Week 39

I found this image in my archives while looking for something else and it always reminds me of the opening credits of Midnight in Paris and makes me smile. I am missing Paris so much right now but I am grateful for all the memories and photos that I have captured over the years.

Small but exciting things that happened this week, the new rug FINALLY arrived for the front room, I got the SHOP button on Instagram (I was rejected more than 5 times and pretty much gave up), I found the dark chocolate almonds at Whole Foods that I have been missing for 6 months and This is Us moved up their return date by two weeks. I am ready to cry along with the BIG 3!

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s favorite links:
