Un apéritif à Paris

What a wonderful time we had... a casual party, in Paris!

From left on front row: Julie of Sydney-Eye; Marie (M); Aude of Paris-ci Paris-la; Back row: Peter of Peter's Paris; Cynthia of Parisian Adventures; moi; Mary Ann of Classic.Casual.Home; she-who-must-not-be named, our concierge; Eric Tenin of ParisDailyPhoto.

I cannot imagine anything better than getting together with friends in a chic Paris apartment. It seemed like playing make-believe at the time.

It was indeed a magical evening, Genie. And I again thank you, and Marie, and Janeen for your hospitality. And for posting this image ... which I will purloin if that is okay with you.

I should quickly add, before we venture out (late- for us) on our last day in Paris, that Mary Ann's delightful daughter, Allie, was our photographer for this group shot.

Oh, how fun, Genie!! I love being able to get together with blogging friends and have several times, but not with a whole group of them! This is terrific and what a great shot to remember the day! Hope you have a wonderful week! Enjoy!

How I would have loved to join you for this get-together. The only person I "know" here is Eric, and this looks like such a great group of Paris-loving people!

Starman said...

Eric looks so serious.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

To all -- What a wonderful time this has been with our friend Janeen and blogger friends, meeting new people, talking to strangers, making new discoveries, finding love in my new camera lens, enjoying perfect Paris April weather, walking for miles and miles, knowing which car to ride on the Metro to Pyramides in order to be at the right end, hearing the bells of Eglise St. Roch, finding the honey bees of Paris and getting photos, and so much more. I will be planning my next trip on the flight home!

Bises,
Genie

Kate said...

Almost everyone is in black...mourning that you must take your leave of Paris. I must say, it's a good-look' group of friends!

Jack said...

I'm glad you had a good trip, Genie. I knew you would. Good looking group.

Petrea Burchard said...

I'm so glad you all got together. And JB, you made me laugh.

way! Looks like such a wonderful
time!

I am home and looking at this again with your comments. It really was a wonderful evening.

Oh, Janeen, the creative artist IS left-handed but is doing quite well now with a "removable cast," able to eat in fine Paris restaurants and paint and draw...

Janey and Co. said...

and we are all green with envy!

Jann said...

What fun this must have been!
