It’s Monday the 24th and it’s officially back to real life around here! I’m SO excited to get back to my normal routine and even try to implement some new habits (wake up when Dustin does to get an extra 2 hours of work in before it’s time for morning barn chores – we’ll see how that one goes!). Our wedding was absolutely wonderful, as was our little mini-moon to the space coast of Florida (pushed off our actual “legit” honeymoon until next year). I’ve got just a few images to share here on the blog, but really you should just hop on over to Katelyn James’ blog to see her full post.
As a bride myself, I learned SO much. Seriously. It will be so great for my business and my couples going forward for me to know exactly what it feels like to be on the other side, and exactly how fast the day goes. I really can’t wait to dig into some of that on the blog, so over the next few months, you’ll be able to read about some of the things I wish I’d done differently, some of the BEST decisions I made, and some more tips I have for clients.
As a wife now, things honestly feel exactly the same. The only thing that’s weird is that now my name is Brittani Croft, and Dustin wears a ring on his finger haha. Since we already lived together, owned our farm together, in our eyes Landon was already my step-son, Dustin’s mom was already my mother-in-law and visa versa, it really doesn’t feel any different. I have re-read his vows a few times because they are just incredible, and I’m loving having “wedding leftovers” all over our house (Mr. and Mrs. signs hanging on each side of our closet, BAR letters in the dining room, my dried bouquet on display and tons of other decor making our house look cuter) but otherwise, things feel the same and that’s truly what I wanted. I am so thankful for the relationship that we have and I didn’t want marriage to change it, other than bring us closer and to have so many new wonderful memories from the celebration.
So today, it’s back to the grind, and I’m loving it. I’ve got a to-do list longer than all get out, but I’m so happy to be back at my desk, at home with my dogs at my feet, doing what I love :) Oh! And it’s chilly and cool outside which means fall has definitely arrived in the south, and it makes me 100 times more excited to head home to Maryland this coming weekend to photograph lots of pretty people in my absolute favorite kind of Maryland weather.
