It’s been awhile, I know! Life seems to be getting in the way of my blog reading. Last week I was at a 4-day sales and marketing meeting where breakfast started at 7:30 and I fell into bed each night after 11 (or later) this included last Saturday too. This week was catch up from last week, plus I am participating in trip to the wine country sandwiched between my wedding anniversary! All fun stuff, but it has cramped my blog reading for the past couple of weeks.
And I have new blogs to read thanks to all the wonderful new bloggers who comment on my SITS featured blogger post. I was so excited to be features, took two years but it was a great day! I love meeting new peeps in the blogosphere and I especially love showcasing selections on a weekly basis in this Saturday Six series, so here are some highlights from the last two weeks.
 Fall is my favorite time in Paris. It is absolutely gorgeous, the food is amazing and the colors are spectacular. You need look no further than Carin Olsson’s post on Haven in Paris in which she showcases whey Paris is called the city of light. I have been stalking Carin on Tumblr for a month or so, her photos are incredible. Unfortunately she isn’t on Twitter so I haven’t shared them as often as I’d like. Every photo she takes makes me miss Paris that much more.
 If for nothing else but for its wonderful chocolate chaud (hot chocolate) which I would drink all day long if it wouldn’t make me 500 pounds! They say that Belguim has the best chocolate, and that may be true for light, but I still think France is the best when it comes to dark chocolate. And chocolate geniuses in general, like Jacques Genin. I have read about him in Amy Thomas’s Paris, My Sweet and on David Lebovitz’s blog as well. But I really love the recent post (and photos) about him on Eat Boutique. (By the way there is still a chance to win an Eat Boutique gift basket if you would like to enter AND pal Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland has one too! Double the chances to win!)
 Lindsey also has the previous mentioned Amy’s guest post on tips for a rainy day in Paris. Something that definitely comes in handy in the autumn. Don’t forget there are also the wonderful passages which are great for inclement weather.
 All this talk about chocolate, it’s important to understand the controversy around fair trade. It is not just coffee, chocolate is a culprit too. Make sure you know where your chocolate is sourced. Read more in this great post from Jennifer James of JenX67.
 And then for a moment of romanticism, you can read about the couple that Jen stumbled upon while sourcing images on Flickr. She found a beautiful homage of a couple in love for 45 years that will have you in tears.
 To dry off your tears and set you on the rest of your day with a giggle, here’s Ella’s (I mean Kristin of Camels & Chocolate) latest “guest-post” Country Dog, Volume 13! I love Ella’s spunk and she certainly does not have a boring life, fits right in with her parents who can’t seem to ever sit still!
That’s it for this week!
How about you? Have any good posts you discovered in your blogosphere journeys that you want to share? How do you discover new blogs?
