Joyeux Quatorze Juillet

Happy 14 Juillet or "Bonne Bastille!" Today celebraces France's national holiday commemorating the 1789 storming of the Bastille prison marketing the beginning of the French Revolution.


We spent Christmas and New Years 2003 in France celebrating my parents' 25th anniversary. It was an amazing trip - and I was the unofficial translator since at the time I was minoring in French (in the end I finished one credit short of a minor). I'm trying to remember the little French I did know my using the BBC website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/audio/french/. It's a great free resource!
