Darn You Canada!

First of all, Paris is awesome! I’m absolutely LOVING living here at the moment. I don’t speak a lick of French but I can put on a killer French accent! Will is sharing with me what he learns in class and it’s been great making a fool of myself at the market. In the meantime, I wanted to share with you some pictures I took of our good friends Graham and Nathalie. And by now you should all know that if I’m devoting a whole post to friends then that means they’re leaving. Yep, Graham and Nathalie are moving back to Canada at the end of this month. They’re packing their bags and taking their precious ginger baby with them. Darn you Canada! Darn you! <raised fist>

Will knew Graham from New College and met Nathalie while she was joining Graham for lunch. I didn’t meet them until after our trip back home to Richmond where we met up while we all happened to be in London at the same time. I remember the first time we hung out in Edinburgh it felt too good to be true. It was one of those moments where I enjoyed myself so much that I had to pinch myself. I guess they had a good time too because they kept saying yes when I asked to hang out again. Yay! But seriously, they’ve been so easy to not just be around but easy to get to know; and easy to love!

Nathalie may hate me for posting this picture but I love it. I wish I could have a sound bite of how big and joyful her laugh is but I think this picture gives you an idea.  It’s one of the many many many things I love about her!

So, we’re adding this to the list of toughest goodbyes ever.

Goodbye Graham and Nathalie (and baby “Elib”)!  We love you so much and are going to really miss you. Until next time!

  1. These are so lovely! thanks for capturing us at this special stage of life, you are so talented :) We will miss you guys so much too, I’ll let you know when I’ve arranged some Canadian visas for you guys to move to Toronto. Don’t worry Graham will supervise Will’s PhD.

    • They are such a loving family and we will miss them a lot. And you’re right, email and phones and Skype make keeping touch so much easier! We’re so grateful for that convenience!
