The Girl Who Guards the Bags


We spent this weekend in a barrage of airports, layovers, and cabanas. It was a whirlwind trip to Cancun for a lovely wedding for an amazing bride and groom. Can’t wait to share more of their wedding photos soon!

In other news, after assuring JD I safely packed our passports and after our cab driver asked if we were in possession of said passports, I raised my eyebrows and huffed, uhhh, yeah.

When we arrived to the front of the airline check-in line, I panicked. I FORGOT JD’S PASSPORT AT THE HOTEL. It happened in slow motion, but I turned to him and said Please don’t be mad…promise you won’t be mad…swear? It was like he knew–he just knew I forgot–so he turned on his heel, sprinted like mad man, and hailed a cab for the 30 minute ride back to the hotel. While I filed my nails…read a magazine…ate my weight in guacamole guarded the bags, JD went to fix my mistake.

This was just one of many this past week, but I’m just happy I have someone in my life who can deal with my complexities. And, really, nobody guards bags better than I do. Really.

Here’s JD hard at work…nobody adjusts a veil like that man.

Speaking of adjustments, if you’d like to make changes to your business, I announced my upcoming workshop for June! To get more information, check out!

Happy Monday!

    And he looks so dapper doing so. That man has great style (or takes instruction well from his wife). Either way he always looks like he just stepped out of a magazine! Can’t wait to see more from Cancun!

    Ohhh Jaz… this is the STORY OF MY LIFE… my poor/understanding/calm/sweet/eyerolling husband has had to deal with a million incidents like this (it’s really awesome to have someone like this by your side through life isn’t it?? And just think about the fun/excitement/adventure/intrigue that we add to their lives πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing… always and forever a fan!!! PS ~ I’m integrating PASS this year for my wedding clients and love that you introduced me to it via your last workshop with creativeLIVE!! πŸ™‚

    Oh my gosh! That’ll make your heart stop. Kind of like that one time I forgot my 70-200 in the bottom drawer of my hotel room because I’d outgrown my bag and my lens no longer fit? Yeah. Thank GOD (I mean that literally) for second shooters/assistants/awesome husbands!!

    OMG, I have done things like that all the time. I so know what you are talking about, and Chris is so patient with me too. Last time we were on our way to Mexico, on a flight from Phoenix, I thought I forgot Chris’ cell phone on the plane. He ran back to talk to the agents while I waited in security. (My Bad, I had his phone in my purse the WHOLE TIME!!) He was slightly irritated, but he totally understood that this is who I am sometimes!

    We veil-adjusting-husbands of complex and talented wives need a support group.

    Oh Jasmine, what are we gonna do with you???

    So glad you’re married to that man of yours who’s such a sweetie. You’ll never eyeroll at that question again, will you?!

    As I finished reading your blog post out loud to my husband over breakfast, I grinned and quickly pointed out that he would NEVER be that gracious with me!! He laughed, "I would NEVER let you handle my documents!" To prove my point further, I smartly snapped at him, "but if I forgot MY passport, you wouldn’t flag down a cab and get it for me – I would be on my own." "That’s right!", he proclaimed. And there you have it…. JD is the BEST husband on the planet!!!!!!!!!!

    ha! believe it or not, i do this all the time. and just this week i did it with my iphone, which i conveniently left on the plane. you’d think that with all the travel this would become automatic but nope. all in a diplo-day’s work.

    I always believed that women were created because men could use some help.. but I ‘ve been saved by my husband from MY many MANY MISTAKES. I’ve since changed that belief. πŸ™‚

    Oh my heavens, I can see that happening to me one day. My husband has already saved me a couple of times this wedding season… and we’re only a month in! Nothing as drastic as a passport, but it did involve a 20 min drive back to the hotel before the wedding started. Love that man πŸ™‚

    That’s AWESOME. My husband would have made me hail a cab to go get it while he ate guaca….I mean guarded the bags.

    You truly are lucky. If it were me and my shyguy, I’d probably go into problem-solving mode overdrive and impose all sorts of crazy on him. =P

    Oh my goodness, you must have died a thousand deaths when you realised about the passport! Poor you! Never mind, we all make mistakes, yay for JD saving the day and yay for you being the best bag guarder in the world! Love the attached pic too.
