Merry Christmas From Mike's Blog Round Up
December 25, 2014

“I like to see people reunited. I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t fell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing one.” -Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

We here at the Round-Up hope you have this kind of happiness today (and every day).
