Thank you. Everyone…

speechless. you’re both too much. infinitely awed to have been even a millisecond of that slideshow! can’t wait to see what 2012 brings!
You guys are absolutely adorable. Today I was feeling kind of hopeless in my photo business, but for some reason watching that video has inspired me. Thank you guys, I’m sure you only intended to share your year, but you have giving me hope, because I see that you too have slept on floors and moved homes, and have been exhausted like the me :-). Keep up the amazing work. ~ Martin
cheers to many more! 😀
You guys are so fun. I admit I had to do a double-take on that GINORMOUS box of crab legs. And I literally laughed out loud on some of the others. Including that shot of Mike with the huge spoon at Pier1 — I have a picture of my guy looking dangerous with the huge knife at the store!
I usually never watch slideshows, ever, because of my attention span… but this was GREAT! Love love love the Yosemite pics from October. & nice ride you got B!
What a great year. I had a smile the whole time. And what a great house!
What a great year you guys had! Congrats on all the success and especially the house! Here’s to an even better 2012!!!
Looks like you guys had an amazing year! 😀 I hope 2012 brings you a lot more happiness!
LOVED watching this. I had the biggest grin on the entire time. You guys are amazing at everything you do!
