Let me be the first (and most likely only) person to wish you a Happy Bastille Day! That's right - the French Revolution started 222 years ago today with the demolition of Bastille, complete with angry French peasants, oblivious monarchs, and severed heads on pikes. Yes, the birth of the French Republic and the notions of liberté, égalité, fraternité are certainly worth celebrating...but so is the fact that exactly one week from today, we are leaving for Europe! Interestingly, one of the very first sights we will see is the Place de la Bastille. Isn't it amazing to think that in just a few days we will all be walking the streets of Paris with a baguette in hand looking très chic?!
I am looking forward to seeing you at Sunday's Bon Voyage Fête. Please be sure to RSVP to Bill or me if you have not already done so.
Until then...au revoir!
