Paris, Je T'aime

You know, I was without internet for several days, and I completely forgot that I was supposed to participate in Castles, Crowns and Cottages' Paris Party today! So, better late than never, right? Here's my tribute to a place I've never been too, but often dreamed about going!




“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”-- Ernest Hemingway


Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.--John Berger


Whoever does not visit Paris regularly will never really be elegant.--Honoré de Balzac



I love Paris in the summer, when it sizzles.--Cole Porter


Everything ends this way in France - everything. Weddings, christenings, duels, burials, swindlings, diplomatic affairs -everything is a pretext for a good dinner.-
Jean Anouilh


This is what you do on your very first day in Paris. You get yourself, not a drizzle, but some honest-to-goodness rain, and you find yourself someone really nice and drive her through the Bois de Boulogne in a taxi. The rain’s very important. That’s when Paris smells its sweetest. It’s the damp chestnut trees.--Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina

I leave you with one of my francophile daughter's favorite French songs. Enjoy...

Oh Cindy, this is how I feel about Paris...*one day...*
Still, our dreams are free.
I enjoyed that song you posted. I had not heard it before. Great shots in it too. I loved the bridge with the street lamps. *happy sigh*

It is never to let to share your love of Paris! Thank you for the beauty.

I meant, late! Never too late to share your love of Paris. I think I'm a wee bit tipsy from the party hopping.

Bonne Nuit!
