Models & Marriage Moments in Montreal

Remember that inspirational girl I mentioned? The one in a wheelchair, running to be the face of a new beauty campaign? Well, she won that contest. And it was amazing.

If you want the full scoop, just go google “Jessica Kruger Lise Watier” and about 200+ articles, tv clips, radio snippets and photos will come up. This girl is a media maven!

Now, a side-benefit of Jess going to Montreal was that I got to go with her πŸ™‚ And a side-benefit of *that* was that Jon drove up from Maine to visit. Yes, yes, after 8 weeks of long-distance-marriaging, I actually got to see my dang husband for 6 glorious days (*go ahead and insert your conjugal visit joke here*).

We celebrated 8 months of marriage, had a 1-month belated birthday cake, ate poutine, devoured the freshly-cooked Maine lobsters that Jon brought with him, visited the Botanical Gardens, rode Bixi bikes, hiked a mini-mountain, swam in a lake, tried Vietnamese, stayed in a loft in a corn field, and just generally tried to make the most of every minute we had together.

And I have proof πŸ™‚

This was our loft…

The loft we rented on www.airbnb.com -- awesome place!I was sorta happy to see Jon again πŸ˜‰

Renting Bixi bikes in MontrealJon’s a bit of a bike afficiando. I tried to get a picture of him doing wheelies (on a BIXI bike for heavens’ sake!) but I’m not quite stable enough to manage the camera and the whole balancing thing at the same time!

Poutine... again!

Now we’re back to our East Coast/West Coast lives, hoping and waiting and crossing our fingers that my immigration paperwork will. be. finished. SOON! At which point, ironically enough, we’ll go back to Montreal for immigration interviews (their consulate is the closest to Maine) and maybe a little more poutine πŸ˜‰

  1. So happy for your sister Leah, she is so gorgeous! You guys both look great after your amazing winter adventure. It’s not easy to live a full life, would be easier to stay in the “system”. You are doing great. Leah please email me if you have a min and would like to get a cup of coffee somewhere in Brunswick or Freeport.
