Bethany and her husband from Love the Grows regularly ask each other questions to get to know each other better. This is something that Kam & I have been wanting to do for awhile. We ask some questions, grow closer together, then forget to ask more questions. We want to constantly be learning more about each other. Although we know the answers to some of the questions before the other answers, sometimes we are surprised with the response. Here are the 10 questions the Grows asked each other this week, and here are OUR responses. Be enlightened.
