This week has been a busy week with home and personal life. My Paris trip is still happening and I am ironing out some of the details of the trip. I typically go to Paris solo so taking a group of 20 feels overwhelming especially after not being in the city for almost two years. The wrapping paper was a HUGE hit and also very time-consuming to package up each order. I sold out of my first run and placed a reorder to fulfill current orders. I will be phasing this out for a bit while I make room for the Italy and Paris calendar which is launching this Tuesday. 🥳 If you have your eye on the wrapping paper for the holiday, I would grab it now before the second run is gone. Email subscribers will see the calendar covers first and can place their orders.

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

  1. Hi Rebecca,
    Thanks for info on passé sanitaire. Could you let us know when you get the final email. I don’t want to apply yet as I haven’t yet made any reservations. But I have heard stories of people cancelling trips due to this delay. I would not recommend going without it. Les français are sticklers for proper forms. The only option would be daily negative test results, not too appealing.

  2. We applied for a “passe sanitaire” 2 months ago and we received an email about 2 weeks ago saying that their site was overwhelmed with applications and they will get to us when they can. In the meantime, we found that most places will accept our American CDC vaccination cards. We called first to be sure.
