Just like Vanessa below here, I often neglect to check the bottom of my profile to see messages and I just realized that you were looking for a mug back in December. In case you haven't already gotten one, you can pick them up, along with other merch, at

Let me know if you need anything else. And be sure to sign up for our monthly e-newsletter at

Take care!
