Mariana is the daughter of Barb, one of my uber-talented coworkers. And Mariana is quite talented herself! Tonight she was showing some of her floral paintings at their church, so I went to check it out. I first met Mariana at one of Kari's annual Chinese New Year parties several years ago. We see each other on Facebook, and I'm always impressed by her positive outlook and her talent. She is in school at Johnson County Community College this year. So proud of her!
