Links I Love Week 22

This week was a heavy one. I know there are a lot of posts circulating through email and social media, but I always think it is just as important to have offline conversations in your personal life with friends and family face to face about what is happening. There are some affiliate links to items for sale in this post, I also encourage you to donate to this go fund me page for the victims of Texas or whichever cause you personally see fit. 

I am currently in Paris for the long weekend. It was a surprise from my fiancé to book tickets. I was in charge of accommodations and restaurant bookings. It wasn’t easy but it turned out to be a really great weekend filled with sunshine, a long walk, coffee, and ice cream. I can’t wait to share what new discoveries I have made once I am home. 

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for links I love.
