At the beginning of February, I talked about cutting back on posting and visiting for the sake of my health. The times I’ve had for myself as well as family and friends since have been beautifully beneficial.

In 1912, her parents divorced and Maria went to live with her wealthy Aunt Stefa in St. Petersburg, Russia. When her mother remarried, she became determined to break away to a life of her own.
