Taking Shape

The building is taking shape.  Technically it is done; we have a certificate of occupancy.  But a certificate of occupancy does not a store make.  We have many, many tasks ahead of us, but for some reason they don’t feel like work.

Another big part of the pre-work we are doing is coming up with our store’s branding and identity pieces.  I’m learning so much by working with one of my cohorts who has a background in PR with the Denver Broncos!  (and a was in the army to boot, so I tend to listen when she speaks!).  Also, we have enlisted the help of a dear friend of my daughter’s, Anaîs.  This woman is a godsend—talented, creative, timely and responsive.  We’ve been doing most of our work via email and across a 3 hour time difference, but it hasn’t mattered a bit.

Here is a peek at our logo:

 Thanks Anaïs for creating such a classy logo for us!
