Links I Love

Happy Sunday! It’s been a full week at home with Paris prep. I leave on Wednesday and I don’t feel ready yet. I have an eye on the weather to make last-minute adjustments to my packing list. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather. I have seen some photos from friends sharing pink blossoms and it is what I was hoping for. I will be sharing more of my Paris spring agenda in Tuesday’s email.

P.S. I have a Paris packing list you can print here for spring.

Henri had his first daycare swim class this week. He had a blast playing with his friends and I got to get some work done. I am going to miss him so much when I travel. I have a close friend that will be watching him while I am gone.
