I met Jenny in the first week of University, when we “discovered” each other in an Intro to Philosophy class. We realized we were both in the Theatre program, and we both quite liked movies with Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient was quite popular at the time). That’s all it took to form a fast friendship that has lasted over 10 years.
Jenny has a crazy wonderful sense of style, and can make any outfit look fantastic. She’s equally comfortable sipping champagne at the Waldorf Astoria in a sequin dress, or having a beer on the couch, watching the football game. Jenny has a huge heart and is very giving and kind. I’ve yet to meet a person who doesn’t love her immediately.
Tomorrow is Jenny’s birthday, so she’s in Montreal celebrating. I’ll be at the cottage, but I’ll be sure to have a glass of wine while swinging in the hammock, in Jenny’s honour (she loves that hammock).
Happy Birthday Jenny, and Happy Canada Day everyone! Hope you all have a great long weekend.
