Don’t Blame Me

Don’t Blame Me


Hola de Costa Rica! We’ve arrived and have adjusted to life in Central America quite well. Many thanks to the blog commentors who let me know Costa Rica was in CENTRAL!! America, and not South America as I had mentioned in a previous post. Yo, it ain’t my fault I don’t know much about geography…blame my mom…I was home schooled!! 😉

We’re off to shoot the wedding today and experience Pura Vida in many new ways…I can’t wait to blog about this amazing couple…I just love them! We flew into San Jose early yesterday and had to take a small plane to Tamarindo, which always scares the living daylights out of me, so here’s a picture of me giving JD a last-minute kiss in case anything happened and we fell from the sky!

    Adorable! You guys are so cute. I love the way you talk so sweetly about your husband or when you tease him. Hope you have a great trip in Costa Rica. Can’t wait for more pictures!

    Glad you guys made it ok. Judging from JD’s expression he did’nt seem worried much. But I think I would be with you. Is that the secret service in the background?

    Hrmm…can’t say I’ve gone to Tamarindo…but sounds like a hot place.
    Btw, the International airport in CR is not in San Jose…yes, I know the pilot and everyone says that it is…it’s actually in Alajuela 🙂

    I can’t thank you enough for your blog!!! I love photography and yours has been updated through the holidays which gives me the best treat when blog-stalking :o) And you will never believe how much I’ve learned from you and JD just going over your photos and entries. Enjoy and capture more sunrays for all of us stuck in Winter!

    Haha….don’t worry…Latinos are used to the mixup. And at least you knew which hemisphere you were talking about. When I went to Venezuela, I had THREE people tell me to have fun in Europe! Have a great time, and I can’t wait to see pics!

    Were you really homeschooled? That’s awesome! For years when we have made silly mistakes my mom has said "Well, just don’t tell anyone you were homeschooled!" Haha, you broke that rule!

      12.29.08 - 5:44 pm

  13. Sasha Rothwell -

    I can’t wait to see these pictures! We love following your blog! I think that it’s awesome that you were home schooled! I was too! Best of Luck! Cheers!

    You will absolutely fall in love with Costa Rica! I can’t wait to hear about where you went, and see the usual upload of insanely beautiful photos. If you are anywhere near the SW part of the country, rent a few mopeds and cruise around playa tamarindo for a while. Pura Vida Jasime and JD!

    The 1st time my 10 year old daughter went with my Mom and Dad, she called and said to sell the house, we are moving to Costa Rica. I guess she assumed we could live at the resort!

    J*, hoping you’re enjoying SOUTH AMERICA…I know you’ll be blogging about the shoot, and of course, JD; I understand it…but if you want to ever see Polo again alive…you will want to post some pics of your twin sister, Bianca…it’s the only way Mami and I can feel reassured all THREE of you are OK….after all, you are acutely aware that the President of CR, Hugo Chavez, is not very happy with the Yankees…and the the Detroit Lions, for that matter! 143

    The best part of this photo, even though you guys are really cute, is the guy in the background. He totally looks like he knows he’s in your picture…

    Please forward JD’s phone number / contact information to me as I’ve misplaced his card from PhotoPlus and my husband, David Ziser, is trying to get into contact with him ASAP concerning David’s Tour in 2009.
