Bon Anniversaire Eiffel Tower


Happy 126th Anniversary of the opening of
the Eiffel Tower today! 

Took these photos with my cell phone during our last visit.
So while not the best camera,
I love the colors. 



This is what it looked like when we emerged from
the Musee du Quai Branly 
after spending the afternoon there.


I had no idea about all the lights and colors
until we came out to this magic. 







And speaking of magic,
March is my birthday month
and a wonderful month it's been.

I got to spend a week at my writing retreat on the coast
with special favorite writing gals.

And last week, we spent a long weekend 
in Napa/Sonoma with friends 
for someone special's 80th birthday party. 

And as always happens in my birthday month,
my favorite season, Spring, arrived in full beauty and...magic. 

Happy Spring to you...
and I promise more Paris photos soon.

Spring is my favorite too Kirsten. It is beautiful here and just within the last week or so. Only thing better would be seeing the Eiffel Tower and, happy birthday. They come quicker now.
