Contrasting colors can be very visually appealing. The differences in each draw out another level of beauty not seen when surrounded with the identical. These contrasting leaves really drew me in because of their stark differences in size, shape, color and texture.

On our journey to work towards excellence to achieve our goals Laura and I have talked a lot about what makes us different. Sure we note our similarities but those pale in comparison to our differences, especially in having polar opposite personalities. But that’s what makes us incredibly strong as a couple, as best friends, and as a team. There are many times we try to fight our differences, looking at the ways the other is different as a weakness and vulnerability. It leads to inevitable conflict. But when we surrender the notion that we should be the exact same we realize we are stronger because of our differences. We should embrace those characteristics and fully utilize our differences.
