Introducing Eugene

 Hello how are you?

A day can make a big difference, I've gone from no inspiration to making up a lot of things to share. 

Today, however, I'm introducing you to a new visitor in Puddle Brook where there is great excitement... In a few days Esmeralda is getting married to Eugene a French Canadian member of the Airforce who was posted near Puddle Brook 6 months ago. It was love at first sight for both of them after he rescued her from a freak snow storm way back in September. As their love grew so did their trepidation at being separated... What if he was posted back home?

Eugene couldn't bear the thought, so on Valentine's Day,  he flew his sweetheart to Paris where he proposed... Of course Esmeralda had no hesitation in saying Yes... His good looks, his accent and the way he calls her ''Mon petit chou" makes her go weak at the knees.

She keeps this photo where he wrote "love you xxx" and all the little memories of that special day in Paris, right next to her bed.

This week Eugene's parents are flying in from Canada and the two families will enjoy a get together before the big day.


And of course for the honeymoon they will be flying back to Paris.

Don't you just love a happy story? 

I'll introduce you to Eugene's parents Claude and Julia (pronounced shoo..lia) in my next post.

Have a lovely day

I can see why Esmerelda fell for Eugene...he is one handsome quack...I mean duck!! Can't wait to meet his parents and you will of course be showing photos of the BIG day, right? Can't wait to see Esmerelda all dressed in her finery!! (Do ducks dress up for weddings??) Oh Ros, I am so enjoying your characters and Puddle Brook...I think we all need a little whimsy in our lives and you've illustrated it just beautifully!! Thank you!! Take care. Hugs. :0)

Well here is my smile for the day!! How cute and what a fun story, we all need some smiles in our lives right now and you certainly have brought them. A very clever 'piece of art', can't wait to see how their love carries on, who knows maybe someday a wee one will appear! Hope things are going well with you, no covid shots for us yet, though one brand is made right here in Michigan, hoping soon though...take care!!

What a beautiful story Ros and who doesn't love a happy ending. Your collage type card works really well and love the handsome Eugene and am looking forward to meeting his mere et pere. Thank you for making me smile. x

Well what self respecting ducklet could resist a handsome and debonair waterfowl specimen such as Eugene?
Of course any would be swept of their little webbed feet at the very sight of him - but will Maman and Papa love Esmerelda as much as their precious son does?

Great fun Ros - can't wait for the next installment! x

There's going to be a wedding! How exciting! Esmerelda and Eugene will make a beautiful couple -- she's so pretty and he's a dashing fellow. Love the card you prepared to help tell the story, and it does set the scene so well. I'm heading off to meet the parents now. So fun!
