Greetings! On this eve of 2012, John and I would like to bring you a non-comprehensive, completely random, possibly spastic list of our favorite things from 2012. If you have not experienced or tried any of these, we recommend giving them a shot in 2013, as we expect they will be just as good then, if not better.
Thank you so much for reading in 2012 - we hope you come back in 2013 as I'm sure John will have picked up some new hair-styling tips by then. CHEERS!
