Q & A with Michael | The Husband Tag

Happy Wednesday! I had a request from one of my blog readers to do the husband tag (some Q & A with my husband where he answers questions about me from his perspecive.) I thought it would be a fun post where you could get to know a little more about us! Meet my handsome husband, Michael! We have been happily married for six years. Michael works for our family's ministry as product manager, which is amazing, because we get to work together everyday! Over the past few years we started flipping houses together as well (I do the design work, and he does the real work haha).

So, let's jump right into the Q&A!  Michael's answers will be in black and my commentary will be in pink. ;) Also, thank you to my lovely friend, Joanna, of Joanna's Photography for these Fall photos she took of us last year! They are some of my favorite photos of us to date! Outfit details are listed at the bottom of the post.

I linked the exact same dress above. It's on sale for only $12.50! I had the sleeves and length hemmed a bit, but this dress is adorable as is, and super affordable! I also linked my exact boots. They are on an amazing sale! I received them for a Christmas gift, but they were originally $150 and they are only around $30 (price depends on your shoe size).
