Jessie Artigue  β€ͺVirtual big sis at✨Creator of @season.everydayπŸ‘—Cohost of #MarriageisFunny podcastπŸŽ™These are the snaps of my #flavorfullife!‬

Roots, man. 🌴 We accidentally dug ours down on the best block of #BelmontShore, and now we're surrounded by palm trees + beach sand + always-open front doors. 🌊 Finally back to CA after four trips in one month, and it's hard to remember a time when this little bungalow wasn't our home. 🏑

πŸ’• If we counted anniversaries in Valentine's Days, today would be our 10th... Thank goodness we didn't give up after our first (really crummy) date-night that very 1st year, and cheers to all the ways we've laughed about it ever since. πŸ˜‚ TUNE IN to Ep 25 of #MarriageisFunny for our last #ValentinesDayFail and follow along w/ the stories on @meetthepeppers to see how we're aiming for Great Love today. πŸ“Έ by @inkedfingers #greatlovegang #thisisgreatlove

ON THE ROAD AGAIN 🚌 We're headed to #KCMO for some fun @meetthepeppers events at JCCC this week! Find out more at and COME GIVE ME A 🐻 HUG if you make it to the live recording of #MarriageisFunny on Friday night! πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Date-night with my dude. ❀ Can't decide which I'm more excited for: the comedy or the cocktails. πŸ˜†πŸΈ Ready for laughs w @NormMacDonald at the @IrvineImprov! (BTS snaps at our joint handle πŸ‘‰πŸ»@meetthepeppers.)

New-ness β€’ The chance to start fresh is one of my favorite expressions of grace. πŸŒ… We get to the beginning of a year or a month or even a morning, and I cling to the truth that every dewy, raw, un-lived moment brings His glorious new mercies my way. πŸ™ŒπŸ» Happy 2017, Friends! #thisismyseason #flavorfullife #happynewyear

Full week of family time and I've hardly looked at my phone once... Too many hikes and happy hours and hugs to hold anything else besides each other's hands. β€πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŽ (Back to CA this am + MORE than a little excited to welcome 2017 this weekend!)

I started a new podcast called #ThePerfectWife, and every time I mention it to someone, the reactions are FASCINATING. πŸ€“ Some people laugh, some look at me like I'm nuts, and a few have even scoffed after mistakenly assuming that it is biographical. (HAH!) πŸ˜‚ But what I REALLY want everyone to know is this: The perfect wife is definitely not me... It's probably not that gal over there, and it most certainly does not have to be YOU. She doesn't even exist, really -- And THATS the point. πŸ‘ˆπŸ» We've got the choice to pursue Great Love over everything else, and getting to celebrate this freedom by spreading the word feels like it's exactly what I'm meant to do this season. πŸŽ‰πŸ˜˜ (Subscribe on iTunes at and feel free to tag a wife that you love right here!) #thisisgreatlove #marriageisfunny

Christmas music cranked. Squeezing in some shopping + decorating before the neighborhood parade in #BelmontShore tonight. β€οΈπŸŽ„ Follow @meetthepeppers for clips + commentary. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»βœ¨

Dark roast, light reading.β˜•οΈβœ¨"You must not wager. It is not optional. You are embarked. Which will you choose then? Let us see." πŸ™ŒπŸ» I've been thick in the weeds of my next project these days -- Normally I'd be deterred by the analysis and stressed by the spreadsheets, but I'm learning that risk is not something that I need to run away from. RISK brings HOPEFULLNESS... And hope is exactly what I need to pour myself another cup of coffee and keep going. πŸ‘‰πŸ» Got a good point there, Pascal... Since we can't avoid the unknown, we might as well embrace the chance to make it great. ❀️

Cried twice yesterday... πŸ˜‚ G surprised me by flying in TWO bestie birthday guests, and now we've got our toes on the edge of an epic #LongBeach weekend! πŸš²πŸ„πŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ›΄ Agenda includes: bike rides, brunch, paddle boarding, happy hour, pedicures and a ferry-ride to downtown dinner. ✨ ... Here's the part where I mutter, "Is this real life?" #toomuchfun #somebodypinchme

Back in one of my favorite places with some of our favorite people this week. ❀️ Landed in our pretty little Puerto Vallarta today + Mr Pepper promptly talked me into a social media experiment... 😏 SOOOO you can now experience our trip online by following @meetthepeppers and watching our insta-stories there. πŸ‘« Come say hello, and share your own #marriageisfunny moments by tagging us in your photos! βœ¨πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‰ #thisisgreatlove #greatlovegetaway #puertovallarta

"I came from Love and I am Love and I will return to Love. Love casts out all fear. A woman who has recovered her true identity as a Love Warrior is the most powerful force on earth. All the darkness and shame and pain in the world can't defeat her." Just finished #LoveWarrior by @glennondoylemelton, and trying to resist the urge to wallpaper my entire home with the pages and then buy another one so that I can start reading it from the beginning. 😊❀️ In the meantime, I'll be the gal jogging around the bay letting the Sun dry the tears on her face. "We're totally, completely safe. The end of whatever road we choose will be redemption -- Love will win either way"✨
