French phrase of the day: coup de foudre

Def: An intense and instant feeling of love

Ah, Paris…


  1. I have this tattooed on my foot. :0 AWESOME phrase!

  2. I remember this phrase being used in a movie, I am thinking a Woody Allen film :)
    I also remember the film with the two French ladies..
    Notice how good my memory is this morning?
    I hope your day is bright and sunny .. chau !

  3. I first saw this phrase in Meredith Mullins' great book, In a Paris Moment. She said it meant "love at first sight". I like your definition as well. And pour was just that. I fell in love March, 2007. It's been a passionate love affair ever since! Le sigh!
