I’ve only met a handful of locals in Maryvale and all of them are really pleasant, relaxed and warm people. I was taken aback with their generosity but above all else, their open and willing hearts.

There’s something magical about the relationship you have with your closest female friends. If you’re anything like me and you have a number of close female friends you can call on for support, advice, love and laughter than consider yourself one of the fortunate ones.
