The June trip is over. It's time to remember some of the highlights, the beautiful sights, the fun discoveries and the wonderful times one always has when sharing it all with great friends .
It all started with a bang; or rather a very ceremonial tap of the hat from the Dean for one happy, relieved, excited, somewhat sad and slightly nervous graduate. Happy she made it, relieved she did not stumble on stage,- yes, those heels were high...- excited that everyone was there- parents and friends-, sad it was the end of a fabulous time on her own in Montreal, and sad that the friends you are sure to keep for a lifetime would soon scatter here there and everywhere to follow their life paths and nervous at the prospect of having to find her own in the weeks or months to come.
