Editor’s note: This is a follow-up to an article Renae wrote in the October 2017 issue of Inspired Woman, in which she admits she has vanity plate envy. She calls it her “geeky habit” to notice personalized plates!
If you’re like me, you take the license plates the state gives you. But I have to admit, those people who take the time to get vanity plates for their vehicles do make me smile every day. So here’s a shout out to those who…

I think I want to meet: DRGNFLI license plate. A dragonfly symbolizes mental and emotional security and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. On the back window of this vehicle was a cowboy cartoon with guns blazing and the message “Back Off.” One side window had an outline of a Barbie young woman with a ponytail reading a book. The other had a helicopter shooting at a stick figure family. Hmmm….I sense a story!
