The other day I was driving down the highway with my daughter and we passed a nice car with personalized plates. I don’t know what it is about personalized plates, but I always love to guess what they say. Some of the license plates are really creative!

I’m not sure if that’s because my youngest recently graduated from high school so her future is on my mind a lot, if it has to do with the Olympics, or if it’s just a theme for me right now.
