Happy Bastille Day!
Two years ago today I arrived in Paris for the first time. What a night to remember as our concierge directed us to drop out suitcases in our room and head straight for the Eiffel Tower for the fireworks show to celebrate Bastille Day (we were completely ignorant to the fact that we arrived in France on their national day of independence). I snapped THIS photo from that night. It was magical. It was perfect. I will never forget it.
I had been saving this set of photos which are some of my favorites for a “special day”. Last weekend I went through all my albums of Paris and the nostalgia I felt was overwhelming (I think I’m vulnerable due to the final HP film this week…everything is making me feel nostalgic). So what better day than today to share with you all some photos of the lovely Laduree in Paris.
Thanks for all your sweet comments on the last few posts, they mean so much to me 🙂
