Haylee's Halloween!


We have arrived to busy season! Holidays, photo sessions, cooking, arts and crafts, shopping, parties and so much more! I am very excited this year. Haylee is a year old and she is growing so fast. This season with her is so much fun. We have been playing with leaves, eating pumpkin everything, and doing lots of art and craft projects.

We took Haylee to our church trunk or treat. (Trunk or treat is when kids go car to car with themed trunks and get candy) Haylee loved it! This was her first year trick/trunk or treating. She was not scared of the other costumes. Haylee was very curious. She was so excited to get candy. When she learned how to trick or treat, she wanted to keep circling the trunks to get more candy. LOL! She had her first lollipop among other various candy. Her favorite is the lollipop. Our sweet neighbor dropped off a whole gift bag of candy for Haylee too. She is spoiled. Haylee really liked the Halloween marsh mellows.

For Halloween Haylee was Minnie Mouse. The inspiration came from Disney store Instagram. I am a Disney fan and love all the Disney characters. Our trunk was decorated with Mickey Mouse décor. I didn't really get a photo of our trunk this year sorry! I hope Haylee will continue to wear Disney inspired costumes, but we will see. She changes her mind every 5 seconds.

Souwan and I both grew up with DIY costumes for the majority of our Halloween past. I remember making my own princess costume with the help of my mom. It was the best time for me to work creatively and spend time with my mom. I want to do the same with my Haylee bear. So I hope we can continue the tradition of making our costumes! So she isn't old enough to make costumes with us, however Souwan and I had fun designing and seeing this costume come together. Her shirt is Souwan's design. It says Ears on Fleek! lol! It is inspired from the Disney store design. I cut it close this year because I waited til the last minute to change details of the costume and well there's my full time job lol. The hard labor was worth it. I salute all the parents who create their little one's costumes. I saw a knitted ninja turtle costume at trunk or treat. OMG! Great Job on that one! Anyways, She looked pretty cute! I hope you enjoy our Halloween pics and some other fall activities around our home.

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…

outfit of the day: western denim shirt

What I wore:Andrew's Co. denim shirt, Old Navy shorts, Thrifted belt, Charming Charlie watch, Kay Jewlers pearl necklace, Belk's pearl earrings, Old Navy sunglasses, and Unisa sandals. (engagement ring: gift =) lol)

denim shirt by lisaanatha featuring short shorts
This denim shirt is very similar to J.Crew's western denim shirt here. (And pictured above) I'm not wearing the J.Crew's denim shirt, however I made an awesome find going through old boxes of clothes my mom had in her basement. A lot of clothing worn in the 80s and 90s are making it in today's fashion. I also found it humorous Zach and Kelly, from Saved by the Bell (show i loved from the 90s) , sported these denim shirt looks. Do you guys remember that?! Don't let go of this staple piece. I think it has been a summer trend, but it can easily transfer to fall and winter must haves too! In the winter I would wear this under a sweater for a warm, but chic look. Stay posted for that outfit of the day.…
