After 7 years in Ottawa and seeing different parts of the world, I just had to come back home to Montreal. Never been happier. Married with 3 (10-g, 12-b, 15-b) and a bleeping mortgage... It was fun to read up on what happened to "us" after high school. I'm always fascinated to hear about peoples' stories. May their be more to come!
