Tazia (not her real name) is from Israel and quite stunning. She has (2) small children and lives outside Boston with her husband who is also from Israel… but they met here! Both she and her husband are Techies and they work for the same Tech giant. So I found Tazia incredibly smart… but not in the way you may be thinking. YES, she is very smart intellectually but, what impressed me the most about her was not her natural beauty, her work ethic or her intellect… what impressed me the most was her down to earth smartness.
Tazia mentioned when she got engaged, her fiancee bought her a beautiful and pricey engagement ring. Tazia took one look at this and said to her future husband… now that we are going to be married, your money and my money is our money! Now that this is our money… we are taking this ring back and using the money for our life together. Tazia held up her hand showing me her “replaced” engagement ring, it was simple but, quite pretty and it symbolized the exact same thing as that big expensive ring. This ring cost $100… that Tazia is one SMART woman!
