Who is Maria anyway?

First and foremost: I am a mother, a grandmother, a daughter, an aunt and a friend. I have four beautiful children, two amazing step-children, two incredible son-in-laws, a wonderful daughter-in-law and six “super cute” “super smart” grandkids. They fill my life and heart with so much joy. I spend my time with my soul mate, my best friend, my second self and husband, Jeff. He makes me happy every single day, and I am so grateful to be able to share my second act with him.
