Dan and I have been friends for almost fifteen years; ten of which when we worked together at an ad agency. Obviously everything we created was nothing short of spectacular, however, occasionally a project would reek such creative brilliance that it deserved the highest possible compliment, “Wow. You really brought the whole ass on that one.”
We have since parted professional ways; I became Chief Butt Wiper and he started his own agency. However, a masterpiece was created once again when I asked him to help us shoot and design the 2014 Mayer family Christmas card:
Awesome card, Dan. You brought the whole ass.
2014 has been an incredible year. I was a part of an actual book that was actually published that 1000s of actual people have read, I had a post go super viral on my blog, had numerous posts published and then go viral on Scary Mommy which subsequently forced me to learn how to shake off shit like this:
Also, I finally took the leap on fulfilling my life long dream of learning how to play the banjo.
That is no make up, no filter with a whole mess of bed head, by the way.
I wanted to take a moment an offer a sincere thanks to all of you who have read, commented, shared and supported my blog this year. Did you know there are over 250 million blogs in the world? I’m honored that you’re reading mine right now.
I hope for you all that 2015 holds many surprises, much fun and love that overflows. Oh, and buckets and buckets of money.
Except you, Lori Ann Bolin. You can suck my butt.
