Happy Friday + weekly roundup

Happy Friday friends. I'm so glad I decided to take this week away from blogging because boy did the flu hit us hard! We've spent the week cuddled up, fighting away a bug and I've finally started to feel better (just in time for the weekend).  A little time offline was just what the doctor ordered (with the exception of Tuesday's Liebster Award answers and my weekly roundup... oops, I cheated!). I hope this weekend has a little R&R time in store for you. Here's what I've been loving:

this stunning video of a sleepy and quiet Paris (Totally makes me miss Sundays in Europe! Did you know everything is closed on Sunday?)
a few rustic family photos from this gorgeous Los Angeles shoot
the perfect pastel outfit for Spring on The Pink Peonies
Jose Villa goes to Cuba and Morocco (and takes my breath away, twice)
a cover of my favorite song that has been on repeat all week
& this pretty diamond alternative that I may or may not have emailed to Mr. Jackson

p.s. Please take the time to follow me on Google Friend Connect (click join in the upper right sidebar) so I know you exist and can take the time to check out your blogs!
