Share Your Story... Heather, Winner of Week 2

I met a French man under the Eiffel Tower…and I just married him!

In 2011, I was studying abroad in my favorite city of Paris. On the first warm evening in the spring, my friends and I went to the Eiffel Tower to have a picnic. There was only one other group of people on the section of grass where we sat, to the left of the Eiffel Tower. As the night was getting dark and the Eiffel Tower began to sparkle, we, as Americans, obviously took selfies. Then, the group of French people who were picnicking just near us came over to help us take a group picture. Who knew this photo would change my life forever?

Three and a half years later, I married the man who took our group picture on the Champ de Mars. You never know who you will meet, or where…but it may just happen when you least expect it!
