I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on this past year trying to really take note of the lessons I’ve learned so I can move forward into this next year with growth. Some of those lessons have been: Making excuses is very tempting and sneaky, and is one of fears best tactics for keeping me small and stuck. Yuck. So no more, “I’ll do that important thing I want to do when I figure out everything else in life, which wont happen” BS. • Happiness isn’t in the next destination, goal achieved, or problem solved. Its a choice and I have to be intentional about choosing it each day. And gratitude is the only way for me to be good at that. • Working with my spouse is wonderful and hard in surprising ways. Just when we thought our communication was amazing, working together brought out some very interesting sides of ourselves. The majority of our fights this year centered around us working together (most of them happening during our “meetings” 🙇🏻♀️🙇🏻♂️), but we’re growing and learning that no matter what, it’s a gift to work with the person who believes in you more than anyone else in the world. Now, if @ericdiazfit would just stop hovering over my shoulder as I work on the computer, we’ll be solid for 2019. 🙅🏻♀️👀 #petpeeve • If I don’t choose my own priorities someone else will. Being physically healthy, feeling connected spirituality, having deep relationships, and doing fulfilling work doesn’t just magically happen. I have to plan and prioritize the time to put effort towards these things, if I want them to be in tip top shape. I didn’t do a great job in some of these categories this year, and I can feel it. • As we end this year, looking back in a nonjudgemental way helps me clearly see what did and didn’t work well for me. Even some of my failures were still forward progress, because sometimes you have to learn a what doesn’t work in order to find what does. So I’m looking forward to
Sometimes I forget that my name used to be Brittany Ritcher. Or that I lived in New York City for 7 years. 🤪 I mean, it’s not that I actually FORGET, but for a brief moment it will pop into my mind and catch me by surprise. Lucky for me, I’ve kept a journal for the past 15 years, so I don’t have to remember a single thing about my life – I have it all chronicled! Every painstakingly embarrassing memory from my teenage years. Every sweet, sweet moment of falling in love. Every fruitless worry or concern about school exams that mean nothing to me now. I’ve written OVER TEN THOUSAND pages (I average about ~60 typed pages per month) and I’m currently in the process of printing out the entries, in an effort to make them feel more like a diary instead of a series of crazy, meandering Word-documents. 🖨 As you can imagine, I’m about 9 years backlogged in my printing, so right now I’m on the entries from the first summer Stephen and I started dating, the Summer of 2010. Reading through these entries, it just astonishes me how life unfolds. I was so certain, after just a few weeks of “officially” dating, that he was the one. Don’t you wish everything was so clear, simple and easy? 💕 As I was reading this evening, something I wrote 9 years ago struck me… It said, “I don't know what is going to happen in life. But all I have is the now. And seriously, I just love the NOW so much, that as long as the NOW is always the best it can be....it doesn't matter WHAT the future holds. Because it will always be a miraculous now.” That sentence sums up 2018, 9 years since it was written. I used to be obsessed with goal-setting, but something dramatically shifted in me this past summer. I shut down Soultiply (my goal-setting blog and podcast) and started to re-focus on the “now”. And the “now” has been so much fuller than the future could ever be. I rediscovered my love for floral design. I started listening to my body and intuition by
HAPPY BDAY to my beautiful best friend @haleyjaenicke!!! 😘 I’m so thankful for you and our friendship (besides that time you pinned me to the couch and force fed me a kale chip 🙄). Cheers to another year of wine nights, country concerts, and weekend adventures 🥂 P.s. I’ve never been more proud of you than in the last photo 👉🏼 LOVE YOU 💗
Today my body made the decision that I needed to rest, that rest would fight off this cold — that rushed attempts wouldn’t do the trick. I think it’s easy to forget, especially during the holiday rush, that we need to take care of ourselves when we NEED it. Haven’t completely turned the out of office message yet.... but at least I’m hanging out in a warm and quiet place. ♥️ #selfcare#lustlocaldc
About my Tomi family and learning about relationships Im living in student home for 3 months now. Part of my journey also contains learning and geting experience of student life. I am very happy and grateful that I have the opportunity to gain this experience. I believe this is a big and important part of my inner growth. I love my "tomi family" like I call my group of people with whom we spend time together. And they are important friends and teachers of mine. In these months I am especially learning about relationships. I know (or more feel) alot about love. But i know little about relationships. Im thinking about relationships in generally. What it means to really know a person, about trusting... building friendship, creating ties .. I am learning and exploring the difference between love and relationships. What i explore for now is that love exists by itself, love comes from our inside, love can be felt in nature or everywhere... With relationships is different. It's harder for me to understand relationships. while love comes from ourselfs and exists by itself. Relationships needs to be built. It takes time. Process. Im grateful that my tomi family giving me opportunity. And giving me also time to get to know each other, time for building a relationship of friendship. And what I learn is that it is the most important and im the most grateful for the time for creating moments together. #experience#explore#journey#learning#relationship#love#student#studentlife#selfie#livethelittlethings#friends#blog#creatingmoments#feelings#read#visualsoflife#story#ifyouleave#feelings#life#exploretocreate#schooloflife#documentyourdays#holdyourmoments#gratitudejournal

That overcast winter sky coming through the window pane, creating that dreamy soft lighting. As wedding photographers, we don’t always get the luxury of perfect lighting conditions. It makes us see & frame things differently perhaps than what we normally would. However, when we do get dreamy light in the perfect setting. Look out!!
Fueling before finally getting down to Christmas shopping! Anyone else only have about 1.5 gifts currently?! Cheers to a strong cup of ☕️ to get it all done in the next 5 days! • I’m loving the addition of @vitalproteins to my morning coffee. At home I add one half scoop unflavored and a half scoop vanilla, but I think these on-the-go packets are my favorite! The coconut flavor is light, but so yummy! Have you tried collagen creamer or peptides? What are your fave recipes?!
Need a last min gift idea? Look no further! Sharing my favorite Buttery Vanilla Whiskey Biscotti recipe on the blog today! I love this recipe because it is simple, takes about 30 min to make, and you get to bake with booze! Who doesn’t love that?

With the colder weather I’ve been using oil based moisturizers more lately. This one from @lalicious_la works great and can be used all over even for your face and hair! ⠀⠀ - What’s your go-to moisturizer for the cold harsh weather?
We decided on a photo-free Christmas card this year (and will probably never hear the end of it!), but it made for WAY less stress in picking out a photo 🤷🏻♀️. I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday season!
Imagine all the beautiful things we can create if we collaborate instead of compete. 🙋🏻♀️ Competing takes away. Collaborating adds. Competing makes the pie smaller. Collaborating makes the pie bigger. 🙋🏻♀️ Next time, when you feel like you’re less than that person you’re following on IG and you feel like you should compete with her, I challenge you to think of how you can help her succeed even more. What gifts do you have that she doesn’t? How can that help her? #collaborationovercompetition
🎶 All is calm, all is bright 🎶 Well, it definitely was bright at Enchant but I wouldn’t say calm 😂 The boys had so much fun running through the light maze and finding Santa’s reindeer. It was a much needed family day.
