This past month my husband has been studying for his profesh (professional) HR exam. (Professional Human Resources Exam) He spent every night and weekend at his desk studying while I have been cheering him on. We really stayed locked up in this house for a month. He finally took the test on Friday and I got the message while I was at work that he passed. I was so relieved, excited and proud of him! I finally can have my husband back and get back to normal life around here. I'm very blessed to be married to an ambitious man. Congratulations hunnie on passing your exam! His co-workers were so sweet to celebrate by decorating his desk with balloons. I asked how he wanted to celebrate this weekend, but he wanted to just chill and eat burger. So that's what we did.


The other day Souwan made me a turkey burger with aioli , and it was amazing! If you need a healthier burger choice, go for turkey. You will not regret it! So moist and delish.


This week I got a text asking me for a family photo session. I'm pretty excited and nervous. I think this is going to be a great opportunity. I have been getting some great ideas for photos and have been experimenting more with my camera. I am learning a lot and I am excited for this session. I cannot wait to see how these photos will come out. I've done a photo session before and have taken photos for a launch party, and this will be one for the books! Stay posted, more to come on this later in the month.


Speaking of phone calls, I was watching the news and there is a new phone scam. These people from Jamaica or Antigua will call you and it will ring one time and disconnect. When you call them back it will charge you between $19-$30. Not sure how that works, but I got a call on Friday from Antigua and it disconnected, but I had a hunch it was that scam they talked about on the news. So be careful and do not call back!

We watched the Super Bowl this past Sunday. I love the Super Bowl, because of the food! Ha ha! Souwan and I went grocery shopping and I begged him for buffalo chicken dip. I blame my girlfriend for bringing that up!  I will admit to rooting for the Broncos. The broncos may have lost, but I still enjoyed the delicious food, glorious Bruno Mars halftime and the puppy/horse, full house commercials! I cannot forget (and cannot wait to see) Captain America and Spider Man. Oh joy!

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!

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…
