    S2 E6: Catching Up With Jenna & Josiah Hazel

    Jenna and Josiah are newlyweds, and one of the most creative couples I know. Jenna works from home as a self-employed photographer and blogger. Josiah works in graphic design and makes music as much as he can in his spare time. He finds selling other people’s stuff easier than selling his own. They recently moved to Denver… and then back again, and we wanted to catch up with them in their new home in Chicago! We last heard from them in episode 17 of season one, and they’ve made a few changes since then.
