Meet Marie over brunch!
Marie was one of these brave ladies who contacted me through the blog when I started to come here more regularly, and ever since I just adore her! She's such a lovely woman and one of the ones I'm absolutely closest to. She's brought up and raised in London but her parents live in Stockholm, after years in Colombia among other places.
Marie is honest, fun, caring and just a wonderful mother to her daughter who has those lovely brown eyes inherited from her Turkish father. When we meet, it always gives me a lot; she's great to talk to and we're really starting to have a relationship like two old girlfriends, which I really appreciate and cherish.
Of course, she has a great career left behind as a banker working in London, but just like me, she's chosen to give the first years solely to her family. I'm so grateful to have met such a beautiful person, inside and out, and it's so much fun to see our children grow side by side!
