The Man Behind Girl Avant Garde

courtney man behind the blog

A little congratulations are in order for today’s featured blogger — as Courtney mentioned on her blog Girl Avant Garde, her and her man behind the blog Josh very recently got engaged! And if you ask me, she’s snapped up a good one. Josh takes all her outfit photographs for her blog, and has been her biggest supporter since she started blogging in June of last year. And, his response when she mentioned she was starting a blog was basically the same response Joe had when I first started out (as are many of his other answers!) so since Joe has refused to participate in this column, assume Josh is a nearly perfect stand-in. Take it away, J!

    Courtney is the sweetest and her fiance is clearly a great catch. My boyfriend hates taking outfit photos, too (plus we are in a LDR), but he is such a good sport when he does!

    OOO! A NYC blogger. I love adding new bloggers to my blog roll/bloglovin lists who are local (to me). Congrats on the engagement!

    This is so cute, a lot of the answers are exactly what my man would say (especially when I told him I was starting a blog). I follow Jim Cantore too!
