Sharing a great new year's image + message I received as an email from Devin Flynn. The title of this post is from the title of his email.
I asked him about the image: "...my mom made that pancake actually. Its a tradition in our house to make face pancakes, but she bumped it up a notch!..."
Happy New Year everybody...!
