our thanksgiving part 1

My Thanksgiving started early on Tuesday. At my office we had an early celebration. All of our coworkers came together to make a big feast for all.

At work we collected canned goods for Second Harvest Food Bank. It is our second year collecting. Second Harvest is an organization that helps feed low income families around the country. Every little bit helps.  

I made egg rolls for our office Thanksgiving lunch. These are popular at my office!

I got in the Thanksgiving spirit watching a classic, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

I love when all of my family is home. Everyone came to grandma's house for Thanksgiving. Although we did miss our other boys( Edward, Ike, Ben, Chris, & Kit) , some were able to make it home.

My little cousin was able to spend this holiday with us. This year she spent time with her dad's side of the family - us. I am very thankful she spent it here with us this year!

Som came in from Fort Bragg. He is in the army and has done two tours. We are thankful to have him home and spend this year with us!

The next morning we woke up early to shop on Black Friday. Black Friday is when retail stores have huge sales and discounts in their store. It can be quite overwhelming and frustrating. However, you do purchase many things for a great deal!

I had to have my coffee. The best way to start the morning is with peppermint mocha!

My sweet fiance purchased this beautiful peplum dress for me! I can't wait to wear it somewhere nice. In case you were curious, I was playing around with photo frames on my phone.

Thanks for reading! I took photos of Thanksgiving with my dslr camera and will post those up in the next day or so. These photos from from the Iphone.

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…

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!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
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…

outfit of the day: western denim shirt

What I wore:Andrew's Co. denim shirt, Old Navy shorts, Thrifted belt, Charming Charlie watch, Kay Jewlers pearl necklace, Belk's pearl earrings, Old Navy sunglasses, and Unisa sandals. (engagement ring: gift =) lol)

denim shirt by lisaanatha featuring short shorts
This denim shirt is very similar to J.Crew's western denim shirt here. (And pictured above) I'm not wearing the J.Crew's denim shirt, however I made an awesome find going through old boxes of clothes my mom had in her basement. A lot of clothing worn in the 80s and 90s are making it in today's fashion. I also found it humorous Zach and Kelly, from Saved by the Bell (show i loved from the 90s) , sported these denim shirt looks. Do you guys remember that?! Don't let go of this staple piece. I think it has been a summer trend, but it can easily transfer to fall and winter must haves too! In the winter I would wear this under a sweater for a warm, but chic look. Stay posted for that outfit of the day.…
