Over the weekend Pierre and I got into a disagreement. He and I are both passionate, stubborn, strong-willed, and opinionated, so it happens. I wouldn’t have it any other way. We compliment each other with different points of views and varying solutions to challenges. Often he makes me see things in a way I hadn’t thought of, and I am able to open my mind to new concepts.
