A beauuutiful couple + some beautiful blossoms for your Monday morning! Spring is in the air this week in Vancouver + I'm loving it like crazy. .

Our last few hours in Prague + an early morning to catch the soft light. 💕 . Our suitcases are packed and my plane to-do list is made. (Hitting the ground running this week with 4 engagement sessions + a live webinar! Eek!) . Don’t worry, I have an amazing rewards system in place - every hour of work I complete on the plane I get to watch one more Parks & Rec episode. 😂🙌🏼
He’s an extravert, I’m an introvert. He loves to spend the day exploring on foot in a new city; I prefer to sip a green tea & find a quiet spot to read and people watch. . He thrives in the unpredictable world of people + relationships; I thrive in the predictable world of order + systems. He loves movies, I love books. He loves intense, suspenseful TV, I laugh out loud about comedy I watched yesterday. He thinks best with music blaring, most days I don’t realize I’m typing away in silence. . We are different people, a few years into learning how to love (and challenge) those differences in one another. We all have our own set of junk — and I’m thankful we choose each other every day anyway. . PS. Tomorrow our vacation comes to an end, we’re flying back to Canada for a couple weeks. 👌🏼 We spent time in Italy and Czech Republic and in true Jamie fashion, I didn’t care to share any of it on here. 💕 Whoops— but it was intentional so I’m not sorry. 📷 @quattrost
A little pop of colour for your feed, today. 💕Snuck onto my laptop this morning to clean out my inbox for the first time before exploring Positano. ✌🏼
A little over 4 years ago, Clara & Tristan met on Twitter for the first time. (It’s true.) Tristan’s sister, worked at Rogers Arena in Vancouver with Clara, and happened to “@reply” both of them with an introduction one night. The two starts texting and hours later, Tristan asked Clara out for a drink!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Tristan walked in, he remembers Clara already sitting at the bar (even though he was early, too!) — and thinking she was even cuter in person. The two hit it off right away over drinks on Main Street and extended the evening hangout with a neighbourhood walk — not wanting to say goodbye!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you to Clara + Tristan for inviting me along to their amazing @skyhelicopters engagement session! The snow on top of the mountains was breathtaking, but the temperature was hovering at freezing. Add in windchill, and 2-3 feet of snow under our feet and everything was a challenge we couldn’t stop giggling through! Made for the best photos.

One of the greatest privileges of my life: traveling with Randy as part of his job at @thisisvillage. We've been to Haiti, Uganda, India & Nepal together in the last year and a half. This photo is us, last month in Kathmandu. 💕 Travel has expanded my world view, brought me closer to Jesus & challenged our marriage in wonderful ways.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There is plenty of hardship, darkness and challenges in the developing world, but you can see beauty + glimmers of kindness everywhere.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All this being said, yesterday we left for ITALY to celebrate our 4th anniversary, just the two of us. No complicated itineraries or leading a team of people! (Even though I love you, impact trip teams... hahah!) Just US, the beautiful countries of Italy + Czech Republic and 2 glorious weeks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's our first vacation since Randy left his thriving career in construction a year and a half ago + started his job in ministry.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can't believe this is our real life. I'm SO grateful!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ok, bye! Also, comment with your Rome/Positano/Prague recommendations if you wanna!
Phew! I've been run off my feet (in the *best* way possible!) this week -- I decided to make 2018 the year of diggin' into a couple huge goals and my goodness, every day, I'm digging! 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Delighted to have booked a handful of weddings this week (half for 2018, half for 2019!) Looking at my upcoming calendar is stretching me in brand new ways as a businesswoman.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don't know if I'm ready for everything that's ahead--but with bright pink lipstick, green tea & a smile, you bet I'm going to give it my all. 💕 No regrets, 2018, no regrets.

Heya! Happy Wednesday. :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lipstick has become my new way to look ‘put together’ with minimal effort! Also… I love COLOUR! Introducing colour through my lips has been a fun way to feel like myself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Simply sharing the love with this amazing brand, if you’re interested. @maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick. This photo was taken after a cup of coffee, tea, and two cups of water in 4 hours. Magic. Also, I wish I was sponsored but no — I have 2 shades and I want more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Before I took this selfie in my co-working office, I announced, “Plz don’t judge me. It’s been a while since Instagram has seen my face. Taking this photo because... marketing.”
