The Sun Shines From Her Eyes

Guest Blogger: Angela

I have had the pleasure over the last couple of weeks of being able to spend some time with Megan and Greg. Megan has not lost her delegation skills and has requested that I be a 'guest' blogger. I am wise enough to know never to say no to Megan.

We have managed to hit a variety of sites and share some wonderful moments that will be warm memories for a long time. Time was spent in awe at Rodin's sculptures, marveling at many wonderful paintings, and taking in a string ensemble at Sainte Chapelle (incredible!).

We also managed to relax grand style. Which included sleeping in on a daily basis, eating pastries, dinner at the park, biking to Giverny to absorb the beauty of Monet's garden and watching matinee movies at a theatre on the Champs Elysee with tea after at La Duree.

What struck me most about the visit was how incredibly responsive people are to Megan. Her warm nature and beauty shines through and she is able to strike up incredible conversations with artists and waiters. She makes people on the Metro feel at ease with her reasuring smile and comments. This is no small feat in a city like Paris. My favorite moment of all was the garbage man telling us that he could not be sad when the sun shone from her eyes like it was as we left a restaurant one day. Her radiance and incredible personality will leave their mark on Paris and will make Parisians appreciate this Canadian beauty. I miss her and Greg already and I will be back.

  3. I'm a bit teary....thank YOU Angela!

  4. Angela reminds us all over again why we miss you so much, Meggie. But you are far too precious to hold you back from the life you were born to live. It is life's greatest joy to see you so ably manage your roots and wings. We love you forever,
