The Man Behind the Blog

I found this little interview over on another blog, and I thought it was pretty hilarious. I’m the blogger, but Theo is the man behind this blog.

Now, for those of you who don’t know…Theo is a thinker and a discusser.  So I told him one-word/one-sentence answers only. You’ll see how well we did at that!

Doing this together just reminds me of one of the reasons I love being married to Theo…we have so much fun with the smallest, simplest things. We laughed so hard over some of the questions/answers and to me, that is pure bliss!

So here he is…the man behind this here blog.

Theo & Suz 212

(Can you believe our wedding was almost TWO years ago???)
