Celebrate Bastille Day with a View of the Eiffel Tower

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 8.40.55 PMTomorrow, there will be merry celebrations throughout France, and especially in Paris for Bastille Day. Of course the Eiffel Tower will be sparkling for the occasion.

Visiting Paris with our children was one of my fondest family vacations -and thanks to the advice of a friend, we rented an apartment in the 6th arrondisement. It made our stay so relaxing, as we could spread out, eat some meals at the apartment, do our laundry and feel like we were “living” there.

We did not have a view of the Eiffel Tower, but some of the apartments available through Paris Perfect offer just that! How incredible to wake up and end the day with that million dollar view !

Love of Eiffel

I love this photo series of the Eiffel Tower – the moody, dark, shadowy reflections. The combinations of 1, 2 or 3 little metal Eiffels.
Yet, what I love most about this series is that it was arranged and taken by my then 5 year old son while we were in Paris. On his Lego camera. And, I didn’t find them until we returned home.
Think he has a future in photography? Little people see things differently, don’t they? And sometimes…better.
