Links I Love Week 42

paris montmartre best articles to read about paris france

Coming home is never easy. I have been jet lagged (we all know I am not the best sleeper). Then there are the hunger pains because my body is so confused on the time, I am hungry at the oddest hours. I fell asleep at 9pm and woke up at midnight and beyond starving. I checked the time in Paris which was 7 am, the time I was used to waking up and going for a croissant. It totally makes sense but I wasn’t laughing. I have been editing away to have my goal of having a new collection of prints in the shop by November 1. I have to say, I am pretty proud of what I shot and I can’t wait to share.

I just added this print to the shop because I couldn’t wait until next week. It is one of my favorites.

What I Bought this Week

  1. Always love your weekly links! This weeks most useful was for the new Nespresso flavor which I immediately ordered!

    • Hi Heather,

      I am so happy you loved that article. It was really well written and showed a new side of Paris. I have just gotten back but it makes me want to hop on a plane again.


      • Nope, I haven’t seen the play or movie. I started reading two nights ago and am enjoying it. I’m reading the Rose translation and don’t find it difficult at all. A lot of the small towns I’ve visited in the South are named in it, which makes it fun for me … easier to feel engaged in it. 💕

  2. Great links day! Marked off a few spots on my map, read some great articles on Paris, and added two books to my audible library! Yay! Thank you Rebecca!
