After a little hiatus while I've been trying to get my bearings following Oskar's birth my weekly interrogation is back! And I'm so excited to begin again with this interrogation of my good friend Michelle! One of the best things about living here has been all the wonderful people we've met, and Michelle has definitely been a blessing in my life! She is an AMAZING person and has such a great outlook on life. (and is great to talk to!) She's also a creator and makes the cutest things; we've loved exchanging homemade gifts. She recently opened her own little business making kids clothing items and I couldn't be more excited for her as she works tirelessly at this new adventure!
name: Michelle Smith

1.What do you “do”?
I create fun, unique, wearable kids clothing.
2. Why do you do what you do?I LOVE IT! I love sewing, creating, crafting, but BizyBelle came as an extension of my love for my daughter. Everything that I create for BizyBelle, I make with love and care as my daughter is my inspiration
3.Where are you from?
I am from the lovely Mitten State.
4. Favorite color?
5. Favorite food?
I am a foodie, so this is a difficult question... I heart cheese!
6. Favorite shoes?
My converse that I wore on my wedding day. They may be old and a little tattered but they are my favorites!
7. Favorite place in the whole wide world?
As an Army Wife, traveling has become second nature but I have come to realize that my favorite place is where ever my family is.
8. Favorite piece of playground equipment?
The park bench... I am a mom, I never get to rest! Just kidding, I love the feeling of swinging (however, the seats are so much tighter on my hips than I remember them being).
9. Your funniest story?
I am a sassy blonde, I have way too many to share.
10. Mac or PC?
PC (please, don't judge me).
11. Manual or automatic?
AUTOMATIC. Uggh, the thought of driving a manual makes me anxious. In my first attempt to learn, I was a teen and I ended up hitting my parent's garage. The second time, I was in my 20's and my husband tried to teach me. Let's just say in the "Me vs. The Hill"- the hill won.
12. What do you consider your best asset?
13. Guiltiest pleasure?
Snacks... oh help me, I love snacks!
14. Biggest pet peeve?
Negative, mean people. They are draining and I will never understand them.
15. What do you consider priceless?
The people that I love. I know what it is like to loose people that I love and there is nothing that means more to me than those I love.
16. If you could sit next to anyone on an airplane, who would it be?
17. What would you choose as your last meal?
I would have to get a sampler platter...
18. What era in time do you connect with the most?
20's-40's... I feel so strongly about that time-frame. I had a vintage inspired wedding (finger waves and all). Ahhh, I love that whole era!
19. Your motto for life?
I have a few mottos that I live by, "It is what it is"- there are some things that we have no control over, I let those things go but what I can change, I foucs on. I love to focus on the positive in life!
20. Best advice you can give?
Take the time to know and love yourself. There will be enough people who will try to put you down, don't help their cause. Love yourself and trust your instincts.
