A Healthy Dose of Inspiration

Laura Notorangelo

I recently was given a wonderful perspective on how to nurture relationships in my life. To be with someone, you both need to think of yourselves as two trees growing next to each other. Both trees need equal space so they can both grow in each other's company. They need equal space because one can be overshadowed and wither away if it's too close to the other. I was so inspired by this idiom that I wanted to whip up a design to encompass this idea, so here is my newest design (in my favorite color of course)!

I believe that the term Renaissance Girl is really another way to say well-rounded, so confidence to pursue my passions of fashion, beauty, food and travel is vital. I hope you like my little creation!
