A year of birthdays

What started exactly a year ago today with a humble speech bubble, grew into a cast of skydiving, flying, banana, rockstar, gangster, sea captain and pipe-smoking Marshalls – I even brought a hamburger costume to Shanghai and went around videoing people wishing Jo “a Whopper of a birthday”.

Here’s to a great year of birthdays – and a bit of a birthday card break in 2011/2012 : )
