Go Orgo!

Today just seemed like a blogging kind of day. It's been raining all day, and the light just keeps getting greyer (is that a possible shade of light?) outside. I didn't even open the curtains in my house today, because I'd rather live in artificial light than have to look at the mess outside. (Can you tell the weather affects my mood?)

The other day I was at Target buying everything from sandwich baggies to a down comforter, and I decided to take a gamble and buy organic milk. The past few years my hubby has been the sole milk-guzzler, but since he's stopped having cereal in the mornings for breakfast, our milk consumption has drastically decreased.

You would think in this day in age where every time I go to buy milk or gas I might as well be buying myself a new pair of designer jeans that I would probably be excited to choose the cheapest milk in the smallest qty. possible (due to the 3 week old milk I found in the fridge before I went to the store) - but my curiosity won out and I went organic.

Within a week of buying the milk, every person who entered our house (without fail), somehow opened the fridge and ALL of them commented on the milk. Are you kidding me? It's not like we're growing our own vegetables or have our own cow...And since when is milk a topic of conversation? (My breastfeeding friends excepted)

The worst part is that they all asked questions I didn't know the answer to!

"What is it with everyone your age drinking organic milk?"
Um...I didn't know we's my first time...really...

"So what is better about organic milk? What makes it organic? How do you seriously keep a cow from eating grass that you don't know had some kind of chemical on it? What if..."'s better for you? (I should interject here that this was a series of questions offered by our friend Stan. I cut his list of questions much shorter than it actually was.)

"Does organic milk taste different?"
(Well, the answer to that one is NO...)

Considering none of my posts have actually reflected my work, I thought I'd give a few glimpses at some of the projects I've been working on...

This is a logo I worked on recently for a local dentist. Unfortunately, client privilege won out and the final logo looks nothing like this one, but this is the one he originally chose:
A brochure for Renovator Ministries:
I've been doing a lot of miscellaneous work...I'm loving the variety and the unique challenges each project brings...hope to post more soon!
