Links I Love Week 8

Shop the Eiffel Tower in Montmartre Paris Print here

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend. I am on a ski trip with my family for the week. We are splitting between two places. I am very much a beginner skier but doing my best to take lessons and learn to ski at age 39 (almost 40). I grew up in Ohio and my parents never were interested in skiing so we never went. My fiancé loves to ski and my sister and her husband do as well. I don’t know how my sister learned to ski and I didn’t. My niece and nephew will also be with us for part of the trip and I am very much looking forward to snuggling with them and spending some quality time with family.

It’s a long weekend in the US. We have a holiday on Monday. If you are off, you have extra time to read this week’s links. There are so many good ones that I am very excited to share. Don’t miss the President’s Day sales that are linked in as well.

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

Henri and I enjoyed a staycation at the Sofitel in Chicago this week. It just so happened it was in the middle of a crazy snowstorm. We made it to the hotel and enjoyed the view of the city from our room. You can see a glimpse into our stay here in this video.
