In 2013 I enrolled for Marie Forleo's B-School. One of the highlights of this online business school is the community of students. In the Spring of 2015, Lou Niestadt was visiting family in Beverly Hills, and we finally met in person. We fell in love instantly! I received an email in the Winter of 2016 with a thank you for my newsletter in which I shared an essay from Clarissa Pinkola Estes. Lou put her magic all over one of her favorite quotes and sent it out to the online world. She was grateful for the reminder of putting herself out into the harbor where adventure awaits.
I decided to illustrate my favorite quote from the essay. And put myself out there, next to an amazing new friend, and obviously, very gifted illustrator. I aspire to your talent Lou. And cannot wait for us to test drive your new Porsche (Our hands are pointing to her illustrated intention).
And we couldn't help but giggle that our special occasion was stamped with a bee on our glassware.
We love B-School!
