We went to the Outer Banks with family for a whole week! It was so much fun. We visited the Wright's Brother memorial, Jockey's Ridge Sand Dunes, Bodie Island Light house and hung out at the beach all week. I'll add more pics to facebook, be on the lookout for those.

Haylee at 34 weeks! She's doing great and the little spot on her heart has disappeared and she is 4 pounds!
Our family gave Haylee a shower with tons of food and gifts. It was so great to see all of the family! Everyone cannot wait to meet her.
It was a great day in the park for the shower.

Thank you Nye Noona for the pictures!
We got to visit Daniel Stowe's Botanical Garden. My favorite parts were the water fountains, butterflies, and orchids.

Haylee's room is still a work in progress. We have yet to hang the art work, get the crib, move our furniture out. We did get her clothes organized in her new closet! My husband did a great setting it all up! Now her clothes and accessories have a nice home.

We are at 35 weeks now! My feet and hands are swollen. My shoes don't fit! It's sort of hard to get around. It seems so close yet so far until the big day! My husband and I are slowly getting ready. We have three classes to help us prepare for baby girl. I'm excited to learn more. I have learned so much from reading the books our family and friends gave us! We have an infant safety class tomorrow and I think I will get a lot out of it.

I haven't posted a lot from our garden. Here are some veggies we picked this week.

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…

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…
