Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

You took this shot at l'Hôtel du Nord, Genie? This conjures up images of old French movies, Arletty, and her famous "gouaille" (cheeky sense of humor). Santé Genie, et bon weekend! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Thanks for the nice words and the nice picture! The glasses are half filled with liquid and reflections. :)

Généralement, les Américaines boivent du vin blanc, en dehors des repas, mais je vois que la plus française, des Américaines que je connaisse, apprécie le vin rosé, comme tous les Français, en été!...

Pet said...

I'll drink to that!

Malyss said...

I can taste this rose. Mmmm. It's a little early, though. Just one drop in my glass please.

Joe said...

Thanks for your good weekend wishes. Nothing like a little vino to start it off. Great photo.

I like the reference in title, Genie, Hotel du Nord... That is a very important cultural reference for French people : it so nice of you to know that one...

And the picture itself is awesome : I like the way you captured the life of the moment...

Nice say too, and so right : half empty half full, it doesn't matter indeed : all comes to whom you sharing with...

Karen said...

Cheers!

Bibi said...

Love the photograph; 'full of life,' as one commenter said. I was at Hotel du Nord last winter; it was cold and I had a 'chocolat chaud'...

Dear Genie, first of all, I see that we are sharing the love for the same place - Paris! I am planning to move there when I will turn 90.I will be spending my days sitting on the bench, wearing hats, shoes by Chanel and smoking rediclous amount of cigaretts. :-))) Thank you for your wonderful comment - it brought smile to my face. I will be following your Blog from now on for more inspiration and beauty! Thank you for sharing it with me. :-)

May your house be safe from tigers.

Alexa said...

And may you stay dry! (No, the other kind of dry—as in enough with all these storms.) Love the way you captured the action in this shot. Bon weekend!

Caroline said...

Great post!

Céline said...

I also choose a glass of wine for Week-end reflections! Cheers!

Kris said...

My husband always says my glass is half full. Thank you for the wonderful glass of bubbly going into the weekend.

I hope yours is relaxing and stress free.

hhmmmmm

Fábio Martins said...

I work with wines every day in a wine shop! Well captured

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Céline, happy birthday! I left you a message - great minds think alike!

I think that there will be plenty of wine (and other beverages) for all of us. We'll place a large order with Fábio for more French rosé and some reds for all! Merci!

If you have not been to Hotel du Nord, it is a wonderful restaurant with much history.

Bises,
Genie

Jack said...

This is, in addition to being a good photograph, the embodiment of friendliness and comraderie. Salut! Have a grand weekend, will you?

Randy said...

What a wonderful thought. Have a wonderful weekend.

SRQ said...

I shall lift a bottle of 1664 to you, since (very sadly) I'm allergic to wine and bubbly. Bon weekend!

Harriet said...

Genie said...

Such a happy sparkling photo this eve of such a sad and tragic day. Your capture is stunning. The other Genie
