bonne fete de bastille
So, last year on Bastille Day we were in Paris. Le sigh.
We lined up early on the Champs Elysee to watch the parade. It was incroiyable. Tanks, horses, jets flying over the Arc de Triomphe. Amazing.
Many of the streets were closed to traffic so we walked to this classic cafe where we had a typically Parisian lunch with friends. Bliss.
There's nothing more Parisian than a patisserie. See that little wild strawberry tart? I ate it.
Dinner that night was in the Musee D'Orsay.
Here's my gal looking tres francais in her beret and gorgeous Little Leona outfit.
We walked through this incredible sculptural exhibition to find the perfect spot in the Jardin Luxemboug to watch the fireworks. You know what's more spectacular than regular fireworks? Fireworks that incorporate the Eiffel Tower. Magical.
Amazing. A day and night I will never, ever forget.
Happy Bastille Day.
