Happy Bastille Day








Happy Bastille Day to all of my French friends and family!

And in celebration, (and somewhat of a tradition) along with some delicious food, I am going to watch Audrey Hepburn's "Paris When It Sizzles". If you have not yet seen it, you must! It involves beautiful Audrey, known as Gabrielle or Gaby Simpson, living and working in the heart of Paris, and her journey to love as she works as a an assistant to the dashing Hollywood screenwriter, Richard Benson, played by William Holden. I promise, I won't give the storyline away, but with so many quirky and fun twists and turns, an enveloping storyline, and a peek of the magical city of lights on Bastille Day, what's not to love?

  11. I'll have to check this one out!

    When I was younger (and not aware of what Bastille Day actually was) I thought it was pretty cool that all the French people celebrated so much on my birthday. lol

  13. I am so embarrassed to admit, I've never seen this one. Actually I'm delighted because now I know what I need to watch next! I'm in love with all her others, Roman Holiday is also so much fun!

  15. when I was 16 I spent a summer in France and got to celebrate Bastille day, so much fun! It's funny, I have actually been on a bit of an Audrey kick recently, Sabrina, Breakfast at, Roman Holiday... but I've never seen this one. I'm definitely going to look it up. xo Caitlin
