When I first visited Paris in 1999, the facade of the Cathedral of Notre Dame was covered with huge tarpaulins. Apparently the whole of Europe was preparing for the Jubilee, so restorations were being conducted in many of the most important churches. On my second trip to Paris in the mid-2000's, my then husband and I went to the Cathedral but failed to capture its true beauty since it was winter. It was a cloudy day, and all the pictures I took were blurry. At the time I still didn't have a digital camera. Yeah, call me old school. In 2012, my friend Emilie and I went to Paris, as part of our 28-day European tour. I took this picture one sunny day in June 2012. I guess it's true what they say: third time's definitely a charm.
