Bottom: Marie, me
I am incredibly lucky to have so many good people in my life.
You can't choose your family, but I got lucky. I have a wonderful family and great aunts, uncles, and cousins, too.
You choose your mate, but can't choose your in-laws. I got lucky there, too. I'm so close to Rudy's entire family that they don't feel like in-laws.
You often have little say in who you work with, but over the years, I have worked with quite a few incredible people. Many have become life-long friends. The group you see here is truly special. I love them all! And by the way, you just can't believe how talented this group is.
As if seeing them wasn't enough, they also came bearing birthday gifts -
