Totally Frenched Out

Yesterday was my first Bastille day as a French citizen. And hopefully my last Bastille Day in this apartment.

While I was disappointed that the rain had canceled my picnic plans, I quickly changed gears and decided to invite a few people over to watch the fireworks from chez moi. My shoebox may be tiny, but it does have one fantastic view over Paris and its many monuments. Because I'm so high up, Tuesday night I was able to watch seven different fireworks displays going on in Paris and its nearby suburbs. It was pretty awesome.

And then last night, the Bastille Day fireworks:

Happy Bastille Day as well to all the other new Frenchies out there - Jennifer, Greg, Erica. Am I forgetting anyone else??

Congrats!! That's a really meaningful one, for sure!! I was thinking about that and how much I'd love to go to Paris for the parade and fireworks when I'm "French!" I was watching the parade on tv and I felt really proud! Hmmmmm.... France is rubbing off on me!
Glad you all had a nice time... Great view de chez toi!

Great pics! I know you'll be glad to get out of your tiny apartment, but that view seems almost worth all the other problems. Congrats on your first Fete Nationale as a French citizen!

You do have a fantastic viewpoint at your "shoebox".

Merci my dear! Great view you've got - for the time being anyway. :)
