Links I Love Week 6

Romantic rooftops of Montmartre winter in Paris

Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying the weekend. We finally had some sunshine in Chicago which allowed for long walks downtown with Henri in the city. My husband and I scheduled two date nights at different French spots. I have had a lot of requests for Chicago restaurants and I hope to share an updated list soon.

File this under things I read when I can’t fall asleep. A love letter to my dog via Cup of Jo.

But the one silver lining I can see in the discrepancy between human and dog life expectancies is that you will have me forever. And that is more important.”
