Dana & Joanna of Chicago, IL

Joanna is one amazing friend. She works over 50 hours a week as a part-time attorney and is a wonderful mother to 2 little boys under the age of 5 (one of which happens to be developmentally challenged). Around the age of 30, she endured the loss of both of her parents and last year she went through a very painful divorce. With all these challenges, she continues to be so positive and motivated. She is brilliant, happy, and the funniest girl I've known for almost 20 years. This woman has always had the best outlook on life. She has always inspired me to be the very best I can be. I'm thinking you desired to hear a romantic story...I just felt that it would be more important to tell you about this because as we all know men can come and go but great girlfriends are here forever.

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
