A couple of months ago, I asked our very talented friend, Andrew, to design a logo for me. I'm not g0ing into business or anything (at least not anytime in the near future), but I just wanted kind of a "stamp" to put on my photos, letterhead...maybe a business card someday. I figured, I didn't have an idea of where to even begin making one up, so I asked someone who I knew knew a thing or two about design.
Andrew was gracious enough to use his time to do this and when he showed me the finished product, I was seriously, not only impressed, but really touched. He even created this "concept sheet" that talks about why he chose the font he chose and what, based on what he knew of me, would be an appropriate symbol. I really couldn't believe how much time he put into it and I'm so grateful. Thank you so much, Andrew!

Alrighty, I have another article to write and it's 10:55 pm. I just needed to warm up =)
