The Paris Party!

Bienvenue, mes amies!
If you've been to this blog before, you've see my little thumbnail over to the right that says "in my head, I'm in Paris"
Well, tonight, I'm linking up with the fabulous 
and her 
Paris Party

and I really am in [a virtual] Paris with many other Francophiles!
This is a bon fête!!

This is one of my favorite parts of Paris...
le Marais

I also love 

Les Invalides...

...and the Latin Quarter...and

The staircase at the Gustave Moreau Museum

or the feminine feeling of the Musée Carnavalet

Once the private home of
 Madame de Sevigné.

I love the "pain, vin, and frommage" of Paris

and the lure of the shop windows

the galleries

and the graffiti...

and the guys.

And, yes, the girls

the lovers...

and the lonely.

The cars

and the carousels

the Metro

and Montmartre

at night...

or day...

and of course, La Tour

at sunset.

These are just a few of the reasons why I love Paris. 

And I'm not the only one...  
Of course He does!!

 If you want to see more of my photos of Paris you can join me at my photo blog 
French at Heart

for throwing this party again!!  I met you just one year ago HERE!!!

Au revoir, mes amies,


  1. Dawne,
    I love your Paris! What a great trip. I did get there early yes. I was at the airport waiting for my flight at 4 minutes past midnight GMT :-). I was keen to get there and see the wonders. Meet you for coffee in the Latin Quarter!

  2. Hello Dawne,

    What amazing images! Is that you in that first photo? Very cool! Wow...I have to agree with you that the graffiti is quite amazing.

    I like your last photo as well. :)

    Have a lovely weekend!
