Paris Encore - another week of Paris in July - pourquoi pas!

French Gin - my celebration for Paris Encore!

Following a joyous month of blogging about Paris, with my friends who've joined me in Paris in July, I'm throwing myself in for one final week -- Paris Encore! There's a few of us who would like to post one or two more Paris in July stories, and I'd certainly like to pay my respects to all contributors with a wrap up post - next week! So, here's one last Mr Linky for those who'd like to join me....

I've got a gardens of France Post, a book review, and some thoughts on Elegance to finish off. It's going to be a big week for be but I'm keen.

Paris in July - end of the month but not the end of Paris....

Mais Je T'aime - oui, Paris, je t'aime. This is my end of Paris in July music clip... I quite like both the melody and the lyrics. 

C'est périlleux, je t'aime encoreAlors c'est vrai ça me perforeJe t'aime pesant, je t'aime bancale - I love you heavy, i Love you wobbly....Évidemment ça me dévoreJe sais tellement que je t'aime, mal

July has come to an end, and I'm in denial. It just happened so fast, all of my hopes and aspirations for Paris in July seem to have gone unfulfilled. Mais.... thank you all for your weekly contributions, your dedication to the celebration of all things Paris.... I have have really enjoyed visiting your posts and learning so much more about the Paris I love. 
Just this past week (week 5) we've caught up on
  • News of the rebuilding of Notre Dame (thanks Jeannie) 
  • tea shops and Paris's love of tea (I do love tea stories, thanks Mae)
  • films in Paris (on netflix)
  • young adult books set in Paris
  • more great books set in Paris
  • plans for parties in Paris with some very well known characters (interesting post at ReaderBuzz)
  • foodie thoughts and memories from Paris
  • ideas for dinner parties in Paris
  • crime fiction novels set in Paris
  • a really interesting review and authors history of Chava Rosenfarb by Mel U. 
Given that I am really in denial, I plan to post a Paris Encore post Sunday evening as (week 6) to allow some of us to get our last few thoughts about Paris in July up. So, come back for Paris Encore!
