Last week we celebrated our 3rd anniversary!!
I still can't believe that we have been married for three years.
Cliche I know, but it seems like just yesterday we
were walking out of the temple, as husband and wife.
Zach being the wonderful husband that he is surprised me
with a gorgeous arrangement of my favorite flowers from none other than Roots.
He had all sorts of fun things planned for our anniversary, but
unfortunately I was super sick. So instead, we celebrated
on our couch watching The Biggest Loser. Romantic, I know!!
Don't worry, we are going to go out and celebrate one of these nights!!

These past three years have flown by, but have
definitely been some of the best yet.

I asked Michelle to tell us a little bit about herself, and her
business. This is what she said...

I am a mid 20s woman with a passion for all things fabric and crafts! I love love love felt, feathers, buttons and mixing printed cotton fabrics! In 2008, I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Textiles and Clothing degree and a minor in Art. After working as a bridal consultant for almost two years I decided it was time to start my own thing and dive into being self employed. Eeeeek!! I love etsy and handmade items that you can not find anywhere else and encourage others to support local artists. I love working from home and spending my days listening to music and playing with fabric. I can't imagine things any differently! It has been a great journey so far and I am learning a lot. My mind is always moving on to creating new things, but I look at it as I am constantly keeping you on your toes! When I am not working on Little Blue Feather, I volunteer for the Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue and enjoy traveling, photography, ice cream and spending time with my family! I hope you enjoy!

Last week, Zach and I had the opportunity to go see
Real Salt Lake, play Monterey in the CONCACAF finals.
We had AWESOME seats, and got to join in with all of the crazy fans...

It was a really good game...stressful at times though.
Unfortunately Real lost, 1-0, and Monterey took the championship.
We still love RSL, and can't wait to go to more games this season.
