Links I Love Week 52

Shop Place des Vosges in the Snow

Happy Holidays! I am spending a quiet week at home. I don’t remember the last time I had this much time off at home. Henri is loving every minute of it and he gets extra walks and park dates. Henri has a half-brother named Leo which we had the opportunity to meet this week. It was the cutest meeting!! Our friends gave Henri a big bag of green and red balls and he is in heaven chasing them around the house.

It has only been a few days at home and I have already cleaned out a few cabinets and organized the fridge. I am just staying put at home over break, Chicago is a hot zone right now. My family is all together in Florida which makes me miss them even more. I am happy they are healthy and can take some time off.

I am terrible at taking a break from work, but I promised I would unplug this week. I have some house projects and plan to read and bake.

I hope you get some time off and can enjoy links I love and some family time. Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s links I love. You have made Sundays my favorite day of the week.

This family shared their child’s nonbinary identity on their holiday card and it brought me to tears. I love how the family and school made the child feel comfortable with their decision.

My Christmas present to the house was this Breville coffee maker. We got in the bad habit of taking Henri for a walk and grabbing a cup of coffee at either Starbucks or a local spot. I also picked up this coffee grinder which will be nice to try out some new coffee roasters.

If you are at home this holiday season with some extra time, I recently renewed my Masterclass subscription. It is buy one get one which makes a great gift for another friend or family member that you can’t see this holiday season. There is so much to learn! I love the Annie Lebovitz series, the dog training was great before we brought Henri home, and I love the cooking lessons.
