Tonight was a good, good night

roof of trees
Those trees do not belong to our courtyard, unfortunately, but to the Parc des Sceaux...

We just spent the most wonderful evening. It's been a busy day and a busy week for each one of us and the weekend won't bring much of a change. But tonight we had the most relaxing time imaginable, thanks to one of our neighbors. She came up with the brilliant idea of having a picnic in our downstairs courtyard.
In the middle of Paris, in a neighborhood, on a block, on a courtyard, on a small patch of green, tonight, a couple of families sat down together and shared food, drinks and ice cream. Kids played and got themselves dirty, while parents celebrated the beginning of summer with wine, stories and laughter. It was totally improvised but so much fun. It made me forget about all the things which remain to be done for tomorrow's party...

I gotta feeling tonight was a good night...

een leuk initiatief van de buren, ver om een leuke avond te hebben hoef je niet te gaan, en als het goed zit met de buren zo samen, en de kinders blij dat ze kunnen ravotten.... meer heb je niet nodig voor... feeling tonight was a good night...:-)
