Links I Love Week 14

Bonjour from Paris! It is so good to be back. The city is packed, I don’t remember seeing it so full and lively. It is very different from October. We had snow on Friday (here is a video if you don’t believe me) and today will be the full day of sun for my entire 10 days. I am soaking up the cherry blossoms that are all around the city and taking new photos for The Print Shop. You can see my Paris agenda here in case you missed it.
