Hello!! It’s been a while! But we’re still here, and I wanted to pop in/up on your feed and say hi. If you want to stop here, just say hi and move on 👋🏻Otherwise... Guys, I’m forever trying to figure out how our life and this platform collide. I want to share, but I like being private. I want to connect but sometimes it takes time away from being in the moment. There’s so much to balance, and so many things we are hard on ourselves for. This has become one of those things for me lately so I decided I’d wait to post until it wasn’t. I’ve been considering how to be more real and less curated on this platform. At the end of the day, we’re just us - James + Steph. James has no need for social media and never has been interested in being online (in the most genuine way and one of the things I’ve always dug about him). And there’s so much more to us (and to me) than all these squares and pretty photos. Like, for instance, health and wellness. Cooking, intermittent fasting, practicing yoga multiple times a week. The work, devotion and dedication that takes. Seeing therapists, a Naturopath, having life giving relationships and daily working at healthy positive friendships and relationships with the people in our lives. Missing my annual physical last year because I was ashamed of any weight I may have put on, and being prompted to book one despite my ego because of a friend who found lumps in her breasts. Both being super introverted and sensitive Virgos and understanding those things as both a super power and also just really hard to navigate sometimes. Anyways, forever in my head trying to sort through everything and also have the energy to do life and be connected here. And I’m working on it. I’m working up the courage to just share and post things that don’t always fit in my carefully curated feed. To feel uncomfortable and hop on Insta stories once in a while. But as I’m doing that I did just want to say hi. I hope you’re all well and happy and are enjoying every second out of this summer. As I’m writing this we are laying in our backyard watching Seinfeld under the patio lights. (and because of all I said here go check my stories) 📷@juliterphoto
We spent the weekend at my family’s cottage with friends. It was all sunshine, floating on the lake, late nights by the fire, laughing until we cried, feeling so tired we didn’t remember falling asleep, and leaving our phones at home. Summer, never leave I’m pretty into you! Photo by @kaihlatonai
He’s my favourite + I can’t wait to weekend together again SOOOON! 📷 a really nice stranger while exploring Venice Beach
Today was such a good day. It was super productive - I got everything I wanted to get done and more, everything just seemed to work out and fall into place, the house is clean + saged, I had a really good yoga practice, and at the end of the day I feel energized and happy. Sometimes the simple days are the best. (Also, our house is full of flowers for an exciting project tomorrow AND tomorrow is already Thursday so that doesn’t hurt) Happy Independance Day American friends🖤📷@michellelphoto
Not gonna lie. I’ve been struggling to be/feel engaged on here lately. Spending time in my not-social-media life has been where I feel most happy, engaged, and fulfilled. Lots of home time and projects, practicing yoga, dinner with friends, gardening, taking Finn to the park, and always this one. I appreciate knowing that this is here when I’m into it, but forever grateful for my everyday life and that that’s where I want to retreat to and refresh at lately. Photo by @julieterphoto

Missing our little sidekick back home tonight. Friday night snuggles just don’t feel the same.
Vacation us. Which is also the us that tried to be like the cool kids and go out for drinks at 11pm. We have wrist stamps to prove it. Turns out vacation us is really just the same us. We had one glass of wine, got the heck outta there, came back to our hotel and went right to sleep. 🤷🏼♀️ Photo by @julieterphoto
