This has to be my favorite time of year–Christmas, followed by a relaxing, (mostly) work-free week before New Years. I have been using this week to spend time with my loved ones and have been waking up slowly and taking things easy.

The worst is seeing a guy rock one of these poorly, sorry boys. And for those of you who don’t know what DGI means… because why would you… it stands for “doesn’t get it.” read more
