BC: Evzi Productions | Happy 22nd Birthday Claire Bear
1: Once upon a time
2: in the small town of Chomedey, lived happily Michel and Lucie. | Both wished to have just one more child, Elena, Joseph, Gilbert, Claude & Nelly just weren't enough!
3: Finally, on November 16th 1989, proud parents Lucie and Michel welcomed a little girl that was just "tooprecious4" them.
4: Though Eva wasn't around during Claire's childhood years, we'll let some pictures do the talking!
7: "Love my Life" | Via Rail
8: Looove clothes!! | Do you love clothes?
9: The next chapter of Claire's life, Eva happily became a part of. This was not your typical "Boss/Employee" affair, but more of a troublesome duo.
10: Their friendship blossomed through a mozambiquian love affair, Nuzaka and Zoquili's tale to be exact...
11: ...grew while they "Panked Their Asses Off " (PMAO) | And of course, who could forget the parking lot dances... | Now I'm feeling so fly like a G6! | Nights got so "wild", that they even coined the term "Red Dragon" as one of Claire's signature moves.
12: Two single gals just having fun indeed they were, until one special night at Moomba's. Everything was about to change. Claire was already falling in love with an "Italian farmer who lived in Toronto" | + | + | =
13: So what did Claire and Eva do next? They planned a random trip to Toronto, with a bunch of people they barely knew, each spent 230$ on train tickets, composed the "I'm on a train song, oh and bought a "Cat hat". | i'm on a train and it's going fast and I got a Thomas the train Pashmina Cat hat | Who could forget this picture? It's the infamous59 facebook comments. For the record, I still think you're the same color as the wood.
14: Right after Toronto, Claire boarded a plane and off to Israel she went. I think it's fair to say she had a good time...
15: By September, Claire and Guy were officially a couple! You know what they say; "Distance makes the heart grow fonder". | Their love story was so surreal , Eva even joked about them having their own reality t.v show. | This week on "The Distance"
16: "The natural pose" | Twas the night of Halloween, In good old haunted Montreal. All were dressed up, from the big to the small Claire a belly dancer Guy and Eva sailors Mario brothers and hockey fans but nothing major. The November sun was about to rise Who knew Elena and Evan had their own surprise; A wedding and a baby on the way. Claire's family was growing day by day. The month of December brought great fun A Christmas celebration and a big hot sun. Claire traveled down south with her "papi" and friends On the Cuban Island they did descend.
18: As excited as everyone was for the baby to come, the new families worked together and planned Elena a good old Baby Shower.
19: Finally, on July 13th 2011, Elena, Evan and the rest of the family, added a new member to their crew; Asher Liam Merson. | To be continued...
20: So much has happened in the past 2 years, that I can't possibly imagine what will happen in the future. But what I do know, is that Claire will have a great future surrounded by her ever growing family and loving friends. This can't be complete without a Celine Dion quote: "We're heading for something, Somewhere I've never been, Sometimes I am frightened, But I'm ready to learn, Of the power of love"
21: Claire, Oh Sweet Claire, I hope you enjoyed this book. It was made with love because I love you honey plum. You are the most supportive, psychotic, loving, overly emotional, caring, intelligent and beautiful girl I know. I am happy to have you in my life, mainly because you're my Zumba buddy. Just kidding! Enjoy your birthday. sista who is 8 days older than me! P.S Thought I'd leave you with some special pictures that didn't make the cut!
