Making The Most Of A Short Amount Of Time

Making the most of a short amount of time - Kristie Jean

Sometimes vacations aren’t anywhere near as long as you want them to be. You have all these amazing things you want to do but before you know it’s time to head home and you didn’t get to half of them. Lets face it, sometimes there just isn’t enough time in a day and unless you have a free couple months to travel you have to …

1AM Thoughts

1AM Thoughts - Kristie Jean

I wrote a while ago about believing in the impossible, about not letting others tell you that you can’t do something. The thing is when it is dark and quiet those 1am thoughts start creeping in and it’s not others telling you that you can’t but it is yourself telling you to give up. When it’s 1am and your brain just will not shut off it’s …

Instagram All The Way

Instagam - Kristie Jean

Out of all the social media platforms out there Instagram is my favourite…which may have something to do with me being a photographer and it being a photo based app…. Aside from that though I love Instagram for finding inspiration, whether it is as a photographer looking for new photo ideas, or yummy recipe ideas, painting inspiration, fitness inspiration, you can pretty much find anything …

Delicious Homemade Granola

Delicious Homemade Granola - Kristie Jean

I don’t know about you but I can spend hours searching Pinterest for yummy recipes which is kind of funny because if it was healthy to live off of frozen meals I probably would…just so I would never have to wash dishes again. That being said, I do enjoy baking and I definitely enjoy eating so I drag myself to the kitchen to cook and …

The Never Ending List

The Never Ending List - Kristie Jean

Way back in the spring Melody and I made a list of places we wanted to see. Most of them close to home with a few bigger ones thrown in for the fun of it. The idea was to get through as many as we possibly could throughout the summer. We started out strong with crossing a place off our list nearly every weekend. As …

A Few Of My Favourite Blogs

Something that might be just a little obvious considering this little blog of mine is that I love to read other people’s blogs. Whether it is a blog about travel and I find new places to add to the ever growing list of places to see, or a blog about life with posts like Hannah Gales one about the friends she left behind, I love …

England Travel Tips

England Travel Tips - Kristie Jean

When you are sleep deprived, in an unfamiliar place and there are people everywhere, flying in to London Heathrow is pretty overwhelming. I thought I would share a few of my England travel tips that helped me survive my week there. • Taking the Heathrow Express in to London was the best decision I made. Though it is not the cheapest way to get in …

Monte Creek Ranch, Kamloops BC Wedding

Monte Creek Ranch Wedding - Kristie Jean

It was a slightly smokey but beautiful day for this sweet couple at the gorgeous Monte Creek Ranch. The beautiful and intimate ceremony was followed by a wonderful backyard reception in town. I had so much fun snapping photos in amongst all the grapes, there was a beautiful backdrop everywhere we looked. Thanks for letting me take your wedding photos A & E, I hope your day was …

Summer 2017

Summer is always over WAY to fast. The snow finally melts so you can get outside and then you blink and the snow is just around the corner again. It always makes me a little sad when September rolls around (sorry to all the pumpkin spice and fall lovers). Summer 2017 started out pretty normal, lots of hiking and getting through the never-ending list of places …

Heritage Hall, Vancouver BC Wedding

Heritage Hall Wedding - Kristie Jean

I was trying to come up with a word to describe Britta and Peter’s day and the one that keeps coming to my mind is happy. Happy doesn’t seem like much to describe a wedding day but when I think of their day I keep remembering the happiness that seemed to radiate from both Britta and Peter and the smiles that never seemed to leave …
