Talk about being at the right place at the right time

I was wondering what I was going to post about today when the most amazing thing happened and it was being at the right place at the right time. How often can you say that happens?

I have to admit that I was a little bummed about today (Sunday) because some Montreal Book Bloggers were invited to brunch with Scholastic Canada and Cecil Castellucci to meet with the author and talk about books etc.

Scholastic Canada reps were in town for Salon de Livre and Cecil was in town because she is her Opera is being done here. Yes Cecil wrote an opera.

I was unable to attend because of previous commitments. That being a hockey game my son had. It was a great game and the kids were still on a high from Saturday’s game tie 3-3 and I am happy to say that Michael got the third goal that tied the game.

Today it was 3-1 and we won again. Thankfully we don’t have another game until this upcoming weekend but we do have two after school practices.

Back to my being at the right place at the right time. Today by pure coincidence I got to meet Justin Trudeau.

If you live in Canada or know anything about Canadian politics you know who Justin Trudeau is but if you don’t know who he is I will tell you who he is.

Justin Pierre James Trudeau, MP (Member of Parliment) (born December 25, 1971) is a Canadian politician. He has represented the Montreal electoral division of Papineau in the Canadian House of Commons since 2008 as a member of the Liberal Party and currently serves as the party’s critic for youth, post-secondary education, and amateur sport.

Trudeau is the eldest son of the late former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau and Margaret Sinclair Trudeau Kemper. His maternal grandfather, James Sinclair, was also a federal cabinet minister.

If you want to know more you can google Justin Trudeau.

I was impressed with Justin before meeting him and after meeting him I am doubly impressed. He was so super sweet and friendly to each and everyone. He posed for numberous photos and always had a smile on his face and a few moments to talk to everyone. Plus he is just as cute in person as he is in pictures and on tv.

So yea I was bummed about not being able to attend the brunch this morning but really glad I got the chance to meet Justin Trudeau. Its not every day you run into Justin Trudeau even though we live in Montreal.

    I know you must have been thrilled. I am glad that you got to meet him 🙂 although, if I had to choose, I would have to be honest (sorry) and say that I am still happy that I did the blogger brunch as I am not remotely interested in politicians (as opposed to books 🙂 🙂

    Great shot of you guys!!!!
