Our French Mermaid

                                             The Mermaid by John William Waterhouse

Today is Isabelle's birthday. Isabelle is the French siren who lured our young Canadian lad across the ocean to France. We don't blame her - for what man can resist the siren's call??

It was Movita who first called her the Mermaid and it is an apt label. I came upon a quote that describes Isabelle perfectly:

“I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”
Anaïs Nin

Isabelle firmly believes in travel, learning, and living life fully. She loves the sea. We appreciate all that she has brought to our family and we hope the next year of her life will be very fruitful and full.

Happy Birthday, Isabelle!
