It's like having a little pet for your face.

At the close of last year's MM, I was exhausted. By forcing myself to attempt to be creative on a daily basis, I felt it was time consuming and frustrating; but, when September came I started to dream of 2011's MM. I began growing in January with high hopes of having a Fu-Manchu and in April it did not fully connect. I was undaunted by the lack of connectivity. My plan was to make it more about having fun with Lilia. Up until May, this year was crazy for the both of us. She finished her M.S. in Nutrition while working full time as a clinical R.D. and I will be graduating in June with a M.Ed. and an English teaching credential. May was the carrot at the end of the stick leading us onward. MM is something I will always look forward to and reflect on as my staches hang on the wall. Is it really goodbye to MM forever?

Thank you jeremy for inviting me.
Thank you Mackle and team for making MM possible.
Thank you Hodges for relentlessly being the MM devotee.

Thank you for being awesome and for wearing what I assume to be a Matches t-shirt. Take care and good luck down the road. And thanks for the shoutout in your caption. I'm honored

This is a spectacular diptych. I love the thought than 50 years from now some grandchild would find it in a box - perhaps the box it has lived in all the years in between - and try to puzzle through precisely why you have a solitary pair of faceless moustaches.

Waaaaa? Framing your yearly efforts after the fact is so COOL! Brilliant! Thanks for helping to make this one of the most fun things I have ever done!

Words cannot describe. I would have never thought of framing it but all the work we have put into our staches why not frame it.

One more plaque for your wall, amongst all the degrees. Thanks so much for doing MM with me the last two years. I can see how your (you and Lilia) photo skills have grown looking through shots past. Your dedication and creativity was amazing. The recruit has surpassed the recruiter.

Enough photos though. You and I have to celebrate in person. See you soon!

That's a great idea. I wouldnt' even care if most people told me it was gross. Great pics, man. I haven't gotten to comment as much as I'd liked. I'm loving how you've really honed your shots, man. This year's stuff is super good. Take care, man.
