nerve wracking

Dress: Target
Blazer: American Eagle
Sandals: Some place in Charleston, SC

What I find nerve wracking (what makes me sick to the stomach) is being center of attention or in the spotlight. I know! This blog is all me. But in front of the camera, to me is another story. I cannot explain how I can get in front of a camera, but not a crowd of people. Even with those close to me being in the audience. Lately I have been in the "spotlight" - all eyes on me. I dislike this so much and it puts me in discomfort. One time I got on stage to sing- because my little brother asked me to do it for him - I froze, ran off stage, scarred for life. In a pageant at a young age, I wanted to cry my eyes out, my mother reminded me what I was doing it for-charity. Now again, for charity, I must face my fear. It is for charity and supporting a good cause. That is all I have to remind myself. I'm sacrificing my comfort zone for the good cause!! Yep I can do this.

What do you do when you are nervous???


  1. thank you for your lovely comment on my blog :)
    lovely outfit, you look very elegant and pretty!
    I get terrible stage fright too! When it happens I usually just pretend there was no one watching me, and I'm just doing a rehearsal :D Hope this helps! xx.

    new post on my blog

  3. love the outfit!! I know how you feel, public speaking always gets my heart racing and nervous, but lately I've found that the more I do it the less nervous I get. I just try to stay present! ps. when I first started my blog and even now I still get shy, I get so embarrassed when other people look at me when I'm taking pics... eek! but I'm getting used to it and just focus on the final product

    1. aww yes i get shy too when others look at me when taking pictures!

  4. You look gorgeous!
    Lovely dress.

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Tips on taking a toddler to Disney World

I got some funny looks when I told people we were taking Haylee to Disney. I know some would say she is too small among many other things, however we did it! Did we get lucky? Maybe! She was the perfect age to ride the rides and meet the characters. Some people thought Disney would not have small rides for children, but maybe surprised that it's the best place for toddlers! The trip was so worth it! Haylee smiled and laughed the entire time. We made so many great memories and we can't wait to go back! If you're here to read all the details on how or what we did at Disney World then stick around!
What we packed:

-Disney clothes. We made our own shirts for the trip. Haylee wore a shirt with Minnie Ears and her monogram. It cost us only $12.  I also bought our Mickey ears from the Disney Store Outlet at the mall on sale for $7! They are around $20 at the parks. You could also purchase Disney character shirts at your local retail store. Buying shirts at Disney World can run y…
