My mother-in-law Marie is 76 years young. We share a treasure trove of memories. Marie is always up for an adventure or a Belvedere vodka on the rocks with three lime wedges — or both together, as often as possible. She is born and raised in Michigan and is one of the smartest people I know. Marie has a bright smile, a ready laugh, and a kind word for everyone. She came from simple means, but she lives a rich life.
She is compassionate and authentic with a huge heart. We love so many of the same things — family, travel, jewelry, good food and wine, and each other! Marie does not know a stranger and is a wonderful, dedicated friend. She is very generous with her time and talents. And, she is very practical, thoughtful, and honest. Our love for each other runs deep.
