Happy Birthday, Jasmine!


Jasmine, for as long as I can remember, you’ve always had a fear of missing a moment. You’ll finish a book you’re not enjoying just in case it gets better in the last chapter, you’ll make reservations to three different restaurants just to keep your options open, you’ll never walk away from a photo booth without a picture, and you’ll never let a good song end without dancing, even if for just a second or two. It’s built into your DNA and I’ve fallen in love with it.

In this moment on your birthday, this is you. Beautiful, intelligent, sophisticated, simple, uninhibited, passionate, loyal and loving. I can’t imagine what life would look like without your idiosyncrasies and I love being a part of the journey.

Thank you for always wanting to capture the best moments in life. In this moment I’d like to celebrate you and all you are. Here’s to many more years of living in the moment. Happy Birthday, lovebug.
– JD

Jasmine’s birthday is tomorrow (April 6th), but in order to hijack her blog, I needed to keep her on her toes…

I met Jasmine in high school. The first time I saw her, she was wearing a cheer uniform and laughing with her friends. Years later I’m happy she’s still laughing…but thankful that cheer skirt is a thing of the past.

This photo is my favorite.

As I packed the car to leave, Jasmine insisted on setting up the self-timer for a photo…I was tired, hungry, and ready to go, but (true to her desire to never miss a moment) she begged me for one last shot.

    JD, you just made me cry at my desk! All my co-workers think I’m crazy as I sit here sopping up maskara off my face… The two of you make my day when I think about the love you share and all the good you add to this world. I’m honored to have met you (that one time at WPPI) and love watching your lives via the interwebz.
    Love you, Jasmine girl – hope you celebrate like a rock star this weekend!! xoxoxo

    This is such a gorgeous (and honest to the max) post – both the images and the words. Happy Birthday Jasmine!! My birthday was two weeks ago and I was thinking about how I really didn’t get excited about it . . when I should be so incredibly grateful that I have one, that people care enough to wish a happy one, and celebrate where I have been and where I am going, even if it doesn’t feel like it’s even close yet. Thanks for the reminder JD!! πŸ™‚

    Happy Birthday, Jasmine! May all your dreams always come true! And to JD – no words.. just sighhhh..beautiful…So now I also have an idea for my birthday wish list – a full frame camera and a Love letter from my husband πŸ˜‰ (i predict he will be so terrified to write a love letter so he might just go with the camera:) But ME?- I will be happy with either:)
