(starts to sing) "Maria Mariaaaaaaaaaa she reminds me of a West Side Story" that's the usual response that I get when I tell people my name lol. I am an Endo Nurse who met the love of her life at the Starbucks near the university she graduated from with the common interest of being huge fans of the Chicago Blackhawks. Of course, we both didn't know that then that we would end up together. When my grandma passed away, I asked her to, one day, help me find someone that will love me as much as my grandpa loves her. Just to have something remotely close to what they have was all I was asking for. Then, sure enough, about a week or two later, my grandma brought Mark into my life.
