Well, I wasn’t able to make it to Bastille Day in Paris this year (again), but I am still in the spirit. Since I can’t share fabulous photos live in Paris, I will share some of my favorite photos of France to commemorate the holiday. Vive la France!

This was definitely my favorite shot of the day. I love visiting places when no one else is there :).

Pont du Gard
I know a lot of people don’t like the Eiffel Tower, but it holds such fond memories for me, I can’t help but love it. This beautiful evening was one of the happiest moments of my life.
