Kiengkham's Korner: we're starting a vegetable garden

I joined my husband and his co-workers to fundraise for the American Cancer Society. I gave a photography basket away (a free photo session and photo frames). Congrats to our winner! Souwan and I also joined in the basket contest. I am excited we won the movie Frozen basket! I just adore that movie so much!

I found five of these guys around the yard. Kind of funny they were in our yard before Easter! You think they are friends of the Easter bunny? LOL

Our Easter was very fun filled. We went to church and had breakfast with our friends. Best breakfast in town on Easter! I made muffins for breakfast and gave some to my husband's co-workers. I love blueberry muffins! I got some beautiful Easter Lilies to bring home to my grandmas, mom's, and for my house.

We have new plants in our yard. I told my husband we are going to have a botanical garden soon! Souwan and I planted more petunias. New to the yard are gladiolus and hydrangeas. Our lilies are starting to bloom and our pink azaleas have bloomed. I will try to take more photos, but here is our pink azaleas this past week. I hope to get the lilies soon!

I have started running again. I love to run, but it has been awhile! Hard to believe I did this 4 times a week before my wedding. I am trying to get a consistent routine going. I'm glad my husband has been running with me and keeping me motivated! We have been running in our neighborhood and I have really enjoyed it.

Our first vegetable garden is coming soon. Souwan and I have already got a few vegetable plants ready to go. We opted not to start from seed and start our garden with small plants. We are hoping to get cilantro, green onions, chili peppers and watermelon plants at our local garden store soon. Here we have tomato, squash, jalapeno, bell pepper, Thai basil, cucumber, and zucchini. I am very excited to grow these vegetables! I can't wait to make homemade tomato sauce and salsa. I believe this will save us money too! The squash and zucchini are super performers and will be great in our stir fry.

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…

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!

Charlotte NC Engagement- Maurice + KaShara

Although we had overcast weather and it was in the 60s, this engagement session turned out to be the best! There wasn't any wind and these two are wonderful! Souwan, Haylee and I drove out to the Noda area of Charlotte to meet with Maurice and KaShara at Amelie's. I had a wonderful time getting to know all about the two of them and details about their upcoming fall wedding. As soon as KaShara and Maurice walked in with huge smiles and hugs, I knew this was going to be a great couple to work with! I have known Maurice since college and was so thrilled that they reached out to me on Instagram. I easily fell in love with KaShara and just knew this is a match! We went out to Noda and our old college stomping ground Frazier Park behind Johnson & Wales. Noda is filled with really great places to photograph from all the beautiful buildings and the artistic work! Frazier Park brought back memories for all of us! They have the cutest furbabies who they used to bring to Frazier. I l…
