best places to kiss in paris giveaway winner

Time to choose the winner for the parisian party book Giveaway. I loved reading about all of the funny and romantic Parisian kisses. Alas, there can only be one winner (since I only have one extra copy of the book) so… the winner of “The Best Places to Kiss in Paris” is reader Wanda Contreras! Although the drawing was arbitrary, I especially loved Wanda’s sweet story of her New Years Kiss at the Eiffel Tower (hot dogs and Nutella?!).  A big “Merci” to everyone who took the time to share their story, and here’s to a second collection of Hot Smooch Spots in Paris!

giveaway: the best places to kiss in paris

best places to kiss in paris

It all started with a kiss. Or maybe it ended with a kiss. Or maybe the kiss came along somewhere in the middle.  No matter WHEN it happened, I’m sure you remember WHERE you were when you had your first kiss in Paris. Or maybe, like mine, your first Parisian kiss was tangled up in the whirlwind of the second, third or eighteenth kiss. But even so, I’m sure there’s one that stands out among all the rest. The one at that café?  On the metro?  In a taxi? Beneath the Eiffel Tower, remember?   Today, April 11 marks the 3rd anniversary of the parisian party blog, and to celebrate this milestone, I’m giving away this oh-so-handy guidebook, “The Best Places to Kiss in Paris” by Thierry Soufflard. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, sharing your most memorable Parisian kiss (openly or anonymously, fact or fiction…).  I’ll randomly select a name from all comments left by Monday, April 12, and post the winner on Tuesday.  Thanks for sharing, and hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane!
