I’m off tomorrow for Arkansas. I could not be more excited y’all.

There will be all kinds of ridiculous-ness and I’m sure I will cry at least once every day.

When I get back I am setting off on the Coast to Coast Walk with my friend Diane and Macs Adventure.

So I will be a little MIA in September, but not to worry, I have been saving the most magical part of our summer to share with you next month.

September will be all about Switzerland.

Also in lieu of my usual Pipeline in September, I will be doing a new round of Expat Stories.

So stay tuned for the fun. Maybe even subscribe.


For the last couple of weeks I have been reliving trips to Paris through writing about them. Both on this blog and for a couple of other sites.

So I thought it would be fun to do a little round up of Paris posts, not just mine, but other ones that were useful to me in planning to visit and Paris and a few that are just for fun. There’s a reason that 2.5 million Americans visit Paris every year.

Because Paris is always a good idea.

So here you go, a whole pile of Paris Links:

Helpful to me in planning to be in Paris for Bastille Day!

Paris photos AND a Paris playlist from The Budget Traveller

Blogger’s Guide to France

Guide to the Louvre

Someone else wrote about the secret entrance to the Louvre, but don’t forget the real secret.

Paris by mouth? Yes please. (Bonus: This place was RIGHT by our apartment!)

Dining with kids in Paris.

Eiffel Tower for families.

Do you prefer the Left Bank or the Right Bank?

Gorgeous photos of Paris from Laurence, (my fellow dreadlocked blogger)

21 Experts in Paris to follow on various social media channels.

And from moi…

I wrote about Biking in Paris (and London) and Paris is a part of my Perfect European Itinerary for Families. Oh, and of course I have a Paris board on Pinterest. You know, just for dreaming.

Happy Weekend friends! I hope you do something lovely!



PS If you’re around the Little Rock area, I’ll be climbing Pinnacle Mountain on Monday morning (September 1). Super early, because I hear it’s a bit hot there. Meet at the base at 6am!






  1. Hey Alison,

    I noticed you were subbed to my old URL on Bloglovin and not getting any updates! Whooops… Here’s the new link: http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12788393

    I didn’t realize that even though I set up a URL redirect for my websIte that Bloglovin subscribers would get left in the dust. *facepalm*

    See you at AWBU!


    1. Got it girl! I think I’ve subscribed properly this time. XO

  2. I wish I could join you on that climb, but because of recovery I’ll just have to be there in spirit. Come see me at home! I’ll totally pull my feet up on my couch to make room for you to sit a visit a few minutes, friend!

    1. FRIEND! I am so sorry!! I will definitely try to come by. I want to hug your neck. XO

  3. Thanks for the mention my dreadlocked compadre 😀
