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.

We celebrated the fourth of July with our friends watching fireworks.
Souwan and I wanted to get Haylee some stuff. Here is our baby haul! Of course we spotted deals/sales and used coupons.
Before: (not exact #) $400 After: $159!!

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.

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…
