Links for le weekend

noeldijon2011

Twelve days until Christmas! Dijon has been enveloped in a frosty Narnia-esque fog all week making for dreamy white landscapes, we’ve enjoyed our first hot wine of the season, the company Christmas party was last night, and I’ve got a million and one great ideas for presents for the people I love…it really is starting to feel a lot like Christmas! As the last weekend in France before we hit the road for navidad in Spain I’m looking forward to heading back to Marche de Noel with some friends, finishing up some last minute shopping, and baking some cookies for a cookie swap with students next week. What will you be up to this weekend?

Here are a few great ideas and links I’ve enjoyed lately…
