It has been a busy week getting Print Shop calendar orders and prints out and prepping for Paris. Thank you so much for your continued support. This time next week I will be back in my favorite city for my first solo trip in a few years. More on that in an upcoming post.
Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s links I love.

My wedding shoes arrived just in time for my dress fitting. I ended up choosing these in the lower heel option. The dress doesn’t have to be hemmed and I can always go up in heel height.
I was craving brownies this week so I made this recipe using the black cocoa my aunt sent a few weeks ago. They were made with a few walnuts on one side as I prefer nuts in my brownies but not everyone does. We shared them with our neighbors and they were a huge hit!
Paris Metro Tickets Reach End of the Line after 120 years. I love keeping these as Paris memories in my coat pockets and bags. They make great bookmarks. It’s sad to see them go away.
I made this Chicken Parmesan meatball recipe this week and it was a huge hit. Delicious and we fought over the leftovers. We are adding this to the usual rotation and I love that it is a healthier version of meatballs and still tastes so good.
I have been on the hunt for the perfect t-shirt to replace some of the older ones in my closet. I wanted to invest in a better shirt so it lasted longer. I fell in love with this one from Shopbop which I ordered in multiple colors and this one from Everlane. I use them to layer under sweaters and I have worn them both on repeat since arriving.
Are you the same person you used to be?
This week I was able to catch up on wedding thank you notes. I received this French cookbook which I love flipping through and can’t wait to cook and bake from it. I added a few more cookbooks to our registry as I would LOVE to have a collection of cookbooks from friends and family for our kitchen. If anyone has a connection to Ina Garten, I would love an autographed copy of her new book!

Caudalie’s Friends and Family Sale is also running which is 25% off everything using the code FRIENDS at checkout. I use this night cream and this night serum and I love the way their body wash smells. I have multiple backups! Plus this face oil is the best and I have this lip conditioner in every bag and coat I own.
How To Find Your Personal Style
I ended up ordering three dresses for Paris from Sézane in hopes that one fit. I always wait until the last minute and scramble for outfits. All three worked out great and I will be packing them. This sweater dress, this striped dress, and this black dress. I am going solo and I think the black dress will be fun for a night out for dinner.
