Meet Jamie & Patrick. A super fun couple who is still madly in love with each other, even after 5 years of marriage. They are both passionate about their work (Jamie has rockin’ administrative skills and an eye for high fashion – think Jimmy Choo and Valentino, and Patrick is a web genius who makes companies look good), which may be why they seem so happy. It makes a difference when you like what you do, day in and day out, year after year. What’s more, they’re into each other. You should see the way Patrick makes Jamie laugh. There’s a certain playfulness to their relationship and a light in her eyes when he’s looking at her. They’re F I T, too. Patrick is an avid surfer. He can see the ocean from his place, jealous much? Wait, mainlanders, you might be thinking, “It’s an island, can’t you see the ocean from everywhere?” Not always, it depends on where you live 🙂 Jamie just ran a marathon. Check out her legs. That’s right baby, 26.2 freaaaaaakin’ miles. Speaking of baby, they’re expecting their first this summer. Woo Hoo!
In fact before Ivan and I moved to Hawaii, I would look longingly at Jamie’s FB (Backstory, Jamie and I met in college in English Comp) and think to myself, “Really? They are really people who just decide to live in Hawaii and go to the beach and wear bikinis and feel the sun on your skin and the sand between your toes, pretty much whenever you want?” I thought to myself, that’s ridiculously awesome. So in a way, she was my Hawaii inspiration, lol. Maybe “someday”, Crystal… well I’m glad our “someday” happened over 2 years ago.
Anyhoo, these two love life. I think they understand the value of it, more than most people, having both lost people close to them. It’s evident that they really know how to find the joy in life.
We took these pictures in Haleiwa up on the North Shore of Oahu. We started at the Haleiwa Harbor, made our way to Aoki’s, then the Ron Artis Music House, and ended up in a grassy field as the sun set.
