What a BUMMER Jennifer .. I hope the picnic comes off, I know she had some of their family there today :-)

According to Jennie in France today is called " la fête nationale " ... or is it called both??


Jennifer K

Hi Anne, it is called both things. La fête nationale is the official name of the holiday, but in casual conversation it is often called le quatorze juillet.


Yes... in fact, I've NEVER heard ANYONE in French say - Bonne Fete de la Bastille! I guess it's said that in English because of the storming of the Bastille in 1789... but no French people I know say Bastille Day...

Jennifer-- Yes.. as LUCK would have it the ONE day in the past month that we've had HOT and great weather-- it decides to "STORM" down (kind of symbolic- don't you think?)

Okay soooo... See you on Sunday!! It's actually AT our place (residence) but downstairs in the garden area. Lots of grass for picnicking!!!

Jennifer K

Hi Leesa, I didn't even think about the symbolism of the storm on le quatorze juillet! Good one!

Looking forward to Sunday!


Well, the rain-check soiree (can a daytime party be referred to as a "soiree"?!) turned out to be worth the wait, at least from my perspective. It was great to meet you! I hope I'll get to see you in Paris again before long.


Jennifer K

Hi Aurelia, it was so nice to meet you too! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Yes, let's definitely stay in touch!
