apple picking season

I haven't posted on here in a month! I kid you not my list of to dos has gotten very long. With the holidays it means more things to do, however i'm thankful because it means some great content/photos are coming soon! I'll try not to curl up in a ball and get overwhelmed.

I skipped the post on our Charleston trip, but I will post those up. I took so many photos so I will try and pick my favorites out to post soon! Hope everyone is safe there! It saddens me to see all of the news on hurricane Matthew.

Here are photos from our trip to Sky Top Orchard in Flat Rock, NC. It was our first family trip to the apple orchard and hopefully not our last. Haylee loves apples and she had a blast picking her apples! She has gotten really great at following directions. She would pick the apple and put them in her bucket. (of course she did quality testing on some of the apples)

Who knew there were soooooooo many apples!!! There were so many different apples to choose from! Souwan and I packed some for snacks, baked apple pies, and made apple fritters. I think we might turn into apples after eating all of them. At the orchard they sold apple cider donuts and apple cider EVERYTHING! We loved the donuts! Haylee enjoyed an apple cider slushie and apple juice in an apple bottle!! Apple for days!!!! LOL

Souwan and I did not know what to expect our first time apple picking. We were not prepared. For others we could tell this was not there first time. They had wagons, water, carriers, and ladders. The weather was very warm for Fall and we got overwhelmed very quick. Our long hike for Asian pears turned into a gold mine and we brought back a bunch of pears!  Even though it was warm and the trees were still the lush green, I loved the mountain views! There is nothing like it!

Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I had fun photographing every moment of it.

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…
