It's been 2.5 months. I'll tell y'all what - I am so glad all of that wedding planning is over. I know some people get sad after it's all over. But not us!
Don't get me wrong, I loved every second of it and I'd do it all over again just the way we did it (minus the photographer) but I'm SO glad to be just living life with Kevin now.
We are having fun cleaning up our yard, furnishing some rooms as we see pieces we like and doing things WE want to do on the weekends now. What a relief!
As we look forward to the next 6-9 months we are excited about a Europe trip, having a couple of parties at our home (except yall may have to BYOC (bring your own chair)), a Mexico escapade, Christmas in Maryland (first time I've brought a guest to family dinner), spending time with family and friends and lots of "us" adventures.
It's fun to think about. And I still think it's weird that he is my HUSBAND and that it's legal (per Mom and Dad) for us to be living together and that we own our house TOGETHER etc. etc. And when I married Kevin I also became the other half to three rental properties and his business.
I've always been a part of all that as a pseudo property manager, a pretend business plan writer and an ole trusty advisor, but now it's real y'all!
We are married and I'm still trying to remember not to call him my boyfriend or fianCHE. Husband. Husband. Husband.
And I'm still trying to introduce myself with my new last name in work and personal life. I've managed to leave voicemails with both my old and new last name in one voicemail. "Oh sorry, I just got married and don't know my name."
