"SEVEN THINGS NO ONE TELLS YOU ABOUT BEING SELF EMPLOYED" ⠀
⠀
...I wrote this blog earlier this week and completely forgot to share it with y'all. (WHOOPS!) ⠀
⠀
If you've ever felt like the grass might be greener on the other side, I'm here to let you in on some of the realities of being your own boss. {And believe me, there is farrrrr more where this content came from!}⠀
⠀
Link is in my bio, loves! ⠀

Sixty-five degrees on Tuesday & a snow storm on Thursday. How is that even possible, WNY?⠀
⠀
Thankfully there are only... ⠀
⠀
-38 days until this indecisive weather is the LAST thing on my mind & my best friend and I are soaking up the gorgeous Florida sunshine. ⠀
⠀
-58 days until I officially kickstart my 2018 wedding season. ⠀
⠀
-72 days until I see my niece again (& all my other favorite people at my bridal shower!) ⠀
⠀
-& 142 days until I become Hannah Bryerton. ⠀
⠀
⠀
I am so grateful for this life. What a gift. ⠀
⠀ ⠀
⠀
Just got off the phone with our travel agent and I still cannot believe we are in the midst of planning our HONEYMOON! This cannot be real life. Counting down the days 'til we are back by the prettiest blue water, with our toes in the sand and sunshine on our faces!⠀
⠀
I love you, New York... but the warmth will always, always have my heart. ⠀

I can hardly believe these two will be my first wedding of 2018 in just under three and a half months!! ⠀
⠀
I have so many exciting things planned between now and then, but their day will be here before we know it! Breana + Chris, I adore you two!!! Thank you for choosing me to help celebrate your 10 year anniversary together and to document your FIRST day as husband and wife! 😍⠀

⠀
I swear, #AsburyWoods has never been more beautiful than when these three were photographed there. I am completely, totally, & unapologetically obsessed with this adorable little family!⠀

⠀
Every January, I try to choose a word I’ll focus on throughout the year. 2017’s word was “hustle” ... & my goodness, did I do just that. ⠀
⠀
I still can hardly believe I primary shot 17 weddings (along with a few extras when second shooting for some of my sweet photographer friends!) I held five days of mini sessions, capturing over FORTY families throughout the year. I traveled to 8 different states & another country to document love stories. And to top it off, I spent countless evenings with amazing 2017-2018 couples capturing their engagement sessions. Golden hour became my best friend and my camera was practically glued to my hand from May-November. ⠀
⠀
& y’all thought the “H” in HS Neckers stood for Hannah.... think again😉⠀
⠀
I’m still pondering this year’s word & it’s already amazing to me because despite a year of hustling, I can already tell that this season will be so much different than the last. So far, here’s what I’ve come up with for 2018: Present. Grateful. Generous. Content. Patient. Trusting. & Joyful. ⠀
⠀
If you had to choose one word for your year, what would it be?
Today, I'm curled up in two blankets & my slippers planning a spring break trip to Florida, our honeymoon destination after the wedding, AND one of my destination weddings for 2019. ⠀
⠀
Anyone else survive Western NY winters by constantly planning your next vacation south??⠀
⠀
Double tap if you'd contemplate giving up your left kidney to be on this beach in Cancun right now. (Because this girl knows she would. You only need one anyways, right?)⠀

I recently just had two REALLY big dates open up on my calendar for 2018! ⠀
⠀
I'm not sure whether to book a vacation in the middle of the wedding season craziness and take advantage of the break, or dance for joy at the fact that there's a possibility to bless two MORE couples on the best day of their lives. ⠀
⠀
Either way, I'm learning to be grateful for opportunities when they present themselves. Whether they are meant for restful weekends in my cozies spent at home, or for sharing my gifts and celebrating joy with genuinely wonderful people. I love them, & I love you all.
Where have eight months gone? It feels more like eight weeks. Being your fiancé has been such a privilege. Thank you for choosing me to be your wife. ⠀
⠀
Here's to 2018 & the start of our forever. Eight months down, six and a half to go. ⠀

Never not going to obsess over this ring and those shoes. ⠀
⠀
EVER! Even if there's a FIRE. ⠀
