Howdy amazing people!

It feels likes it been so long since we've spoken!

I wanted to update you on the status of packages! Because I oh so badly want to send you mail. We are just waiting on a contract for some graphic design/illustration before we can print the stickers. It should all happen next week which means mail soon!

Greg and I are both going on separate adventures next week -- he will be in DC working with a group of 41 students on an Alternative Spring Break trip to help the homeless and the hungry. I will be in Alamosa, visiting family and shooting a music video. I think we will both come home feeling incredibly fulfilled.

BUT! BIG NEWS! American Bear: An Adventure in the Kindness of Strangers as been selected as a potential fundee for the American Documentary Pitch Competition in Palm Springs, California! We are incredibly excited to head out there in about three weeks and give it our best shot! We can't wait to tell people all about our film. (Its also our three year anniversary!)

And lastly, we wanted to share with you our next episode of BEAR Bones -- in which Amy Pinkham discusses facial hair. Basically, people who have it can't be trusted. Except Santa Claus. and Greg.

I hope you are all doing so well. Its snowing in Syracuse right now -- big large flakes of real snow. And I love it!!
