Links I Love Week 17

Shop Weekend in Paris Print Here

It has been a great first week home catching up on work, projects, The Print Shop, and spending time with Henri. I had coffee and croissants with friends yesterday that started in the morning and ended in the afternoon. It was really nice to be unplugged from technology and connect in person.

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s links I love.
