Links: Best Finds of January

February 02, 2012

Every month, I post a list of some of my favorite or just the most eye-catching articles, recipes, blogs and other links I have come across in the past month.  Some relate to Paris and European travels and some have nothing at all to do with the themes of Paris Weekender.  Enjoy!  See December’s favorite links post for more fun snippets.  And be sure to also visit my page entitled Some Favorite Links for my all-time favorite sites I go back to over and over.
