Having completed one adventure, another has yet to even begin.

I've been emo all morning watching comments come across the board while I worked. I tried to think of all of the names I wanted to put here in thanks. Every few minutes I would think of another, so in the interest of not wanting to exclude, I'll hit the highlights and jet before I go super emo!

Mackle Derble In a way, these last 2 Mays have just been a fun detour from everyday life, kind of like a tiny vacation-a-day with new and interesting activities and people. But ultimately every experience in life teaches us each something. On the obvious end, though I am no chadmcclarnon , I learned a great deal about photography. I have a much better idea of how to just jump in and get the lighting I want, to manipulate the lens to make things happen and a better idea of how to frame - all by forcing myself to get out and DO.
On the not-so-obvious end, I learned quite a bit of how-to with the misses. Seems odd, yes? But there was some forced give-and-take this month: I HAD TO take a pic every day - no questions asked! I often needed her help here at the house to take these photos. And regardless of her VERY pregnant status, she was there for me every time. Our dynamic has changed greatly for the better this month. So for all of these things, sincerely - Thank You.

As for slor , chadmcclarnon and tevetorbes consider yourselves responsible for the above as well. Somehow you 3 talked a life-long babyface into discovering what his facial hair would look like if left alone.

Enough ramble! I'll put my fb/twitter in clames below so hit me up! Perhaps we'll get to meet again in the future.

Godspeed to you all.

You're going to be a great dad. You know how I know? You love your wife and have an insanely awesome moustache.

Today my (almost) 2 year old son told me, "don't shave. keep it forever."

I'm excited for you! Drop by our office if you're ever in town. (clame)

I've have thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with you here on the interwebs. We should really make it happen in real life. Feel free to hit me up if you ever pop into the city for some reason. I'm always around. And, happy congratulations on the newest additions to your family. They are going to be the luckiest kids in the world to have a dad as awesome as you. Much love, my friend.
