La Nuit Blanche

La Nuit Blanche sort of has a special connotation for me now - after a month or so of dating, it's the night C & I officially had "The Talk" and became a couple. Last year we spent it waiting in an interminable line at the Luxembourg Gardens. C can't stand lines, so we decided to just go bar-hopping with a friend and see what we came across while walking from place to place. After a few drinks, we ended up down by the Seine. We took a quick look at Notre Dame, but it was such a lovely night that we ended up just hanging out down by the river. It was like a throw back to summer - the weather was so mild, there was music everywhere and the streets were filled with people having a good time. I think that's one of the things I like most about la Nuit Blanche - it gives you the opportunity to do something totally different each year. It can give you an excuse to go explore a new, yet-undiscovered quartier, or you can stay in your neighborhood and still come across something equally cool. It's like one last night of fun and frolicking before the cold weather rolls in and winter begins...

Beautiful! I had good intentions, but think I'm getting old. We were too tired after dinner so went home and watched Gossip Girl (I'm also too old for that)!

Wonderful photos! I live in Boston but have visited Paris a handful of times. There is certainly something magical about the city - and especially the area around Notre Dame. Your nighttime photos catch that magic perfectly.
