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 🙂 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 🙂
This was our loft…
Jon’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!
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 😉
