This weekend my husband and I visited with our college friends. We had an Asian themed potluck and spent the day at two local vineyards. The two vineyards were: Old Stone and Uwharrie. It's been 10 years of friendship. The most memorable time of my life. The best friends a girl would ever have! Some incredible moments happened with these people. God blessed me with them for my difficult and happy moments. They have seen Souwan and I from the beginning. The best friends who tolerated my tipsy antics. The interrupted dorm nights running amuck. The days we spent at school competitions. The nights studying endlessly. Ahem, "studying" nights that may have turned to nights on Myspace and AOL. If you were my professor, (and reading this) then we absolutely were not on Myspace! The nights celebrating and laughing perpetually. They are the friend's who know me, but still love me after 10 years.

After 10 years one of my best friends is moving away. It is a bitter sweet time. I am going to miss her! I'm not ready for this, but boy is she going to have a blast in Vegas!! Vegas is one of those cities you have to include an exclamation mark after. Ha! I was not ready to let her go after our hug on Sunday. It does makes me smile when I think back at our memories in college. She is my couponing, crafty, fashionista and bargain partner in life. And if you ever need a laugh, she can make that happen. I am eager to visit her in VEGAS! I look forward to the Eifel tower experience, roller coasters, Grand Canyon and all the shows! Have you been? What should we or she must see?! I'm starting a list right now!

My husband's boss sent me excellent fabric pieces. I am thrilled with the various pieces. The prints have my mind wheel turning perpetually of what I can make. I adore the lace, plaid and Carolina panther's print. It was so nice! Thank you for these!

As you may know, the Olympics are in play! It has taken over at the Kiengkham's home. Last night we stayed up later than usual to watch the luge and men's snowboarding half pipe events. Way to go USA! I watched the Opening Ceremony. My thoughts: Ralph Lauren is legendary, the war and peace ballet was romantic, and I adored the floating St Basil. I mainly watch the winter Olympics for the figure skating, but caught some snowboarding. Jamie Anderson is very talented and one to watch. The women's figure skating has not started. You still have time! I believe everyone will be watching Ashley Wagoner, however I adore Gracie Gold and Maia Shibutani. Good luck team USA! Go 'Merica!

Winter weather has hit the Carolinas. Everyone be safe! If ya make a snowman, send me photos =) ! I may have to work in these nasty conditions. Can someone lend me there 4 wheeler?!!

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…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!
