1,000th Blog Post

I
'm kinda embarrrassed to admit I'm not really a mushy, romantic type of girl. Don't get me wrong, I love a good chick flick, but there's something I can't stomach about the cupid balloons, heart-shaped chocolates, and overstuffed teddy bears. I know...I know...I'm ruining Girl Code right about now.

Last night before going to bed, JD asked if I'd like to exchange Valentine's gifts in the morning or over dinner. And, whooosh, I felt a chill run through my body because gifts? NO ONE TOLD ME WE WERE EXCHANGING GIFTS. I suddenly had to plan a last-minute trip to Target for some discounted heart-shaped chocolates.


I'm joking. Sorta.

In less tacky and revealing news, today marks my 1,000th Blog Post. Hollllllllla. What started as a way to document my life, challenges, and failures, has morphed into a daily journal of living my dreams. Out loud. For those who share your time and lives with me, thank you. I am incredibly appreciative and I hope there's another 1,000 blog posts in the future to document how life changes from here.

Three lucky blog readers will receive 1,000 PENNIES to itunes simply by leaving a comment. The winners will be announced tomorrow. Oh, and in case there's a sale on the heart-shaped chocolates at Target, you might get that instead of the actual prize. Fine print, baby.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Katherine Joseph - I have been ooohhhing and ahhhing over your website all day! I can only dream of being half or a fourth as talented as you are with capturing the precious moments you do! I love photography, every aspect of it and am completely inspired by your work. Just wanted you to know you have gained a new follower/fan. Peace. Kat  03.23.11 - 2:09pm
Erin - Kansas City Photographers - I just want to post on you 1,000th blog post. Congrats.  03.03.11 - 2:19pm
Heather Corporan - I feel the same way! But I think it's more because I loathe the idea of people just showing love and appreciation for one another ONE DAY of the entire year. I'll take heart shaped chocolates any day of the year ; ) Teddy bears collect dust, balloons deflate, and flowers die . . .love is the best thing in the world, so why try to how it with such things. Just sayin . . .pass the chocolate lol.   02.21.11 - 9:08am

And if, by some insane stroke of luck I win (which I won't because I suck at winning stuff) I want you to do one of two things: use my 1,000 iTunes Pennies to buy a huge amount of music that you can rock out to and sing at the top of your lungs, giving JD exactly what I'm sure he wants for heart day, anyway, OR pick another winner. A comment that made you laugh. Or cry. Or laugh so hard you cried. Because this year I vowed to Pay It Forward. You've done SO much for me already..... Xo A   02.14.11 - 6:55pm

Kelly - Hello Jasmine! Always love following your blog! You are not alone by being a female who is a little nauseous over the balloons and stuffed animals, etc. I am with ya and have been since I graduated high school, I think. Waste of money, I say, but not that I do not want to be remembered....just do it by loving me and if you get me something, get me something that is special, divine, gourmet, fine, etc. Geez, wow! I've never really "said" that out loud, but it is how I feel. Flowers...I do like them cuz then I can freshen up a room with them and enjoy them for a time. Anyhow, I can go on, but point is I agree with you! :)  02.14.11 - 3:25pm
Jodie Lemke - WHOO Congrats Jasmine!! And Happy Valentines Day to you and JD :) I hope you took some time for what matters most, the time together! Thanks for the opportunity win yay iTunes!! :)  02.14.11 - 3:24pm

When I find one for you, I'll show it to you; and when you find one for me, you show it to me." DONE! That made me laugh so hard -- because it's SO PERFECT! I think going out for ice cream afterwards would just be, well, the cherry on top. Happy 1,000th Post Day!  02.14.11 - 1:19pm

Sincerely, Another Girl Code "Breaker"   02.14.11 - 10:17am
Hugo Tepe - That's the right way to do it. Even if your GF/Wife says, no gifts! You should always go that extra mile for your beautiful lady, reminding her no matter what, she still deserves more than she expects. Happy 1,000th!!!!!!!!  02.14.11 - 10:17am

Lana - Jass, you are not alone on this not feeling da V-day :) I was just thinking if my car got a V-day bath, clothes were picked up, dishes washed- that alone would make it for relaxed day and maybe the gift idea would come naturaly.

Joni - Congratulations on your 1000th blog post! I enjoy reading them so very much. Last year, my husband really, really, REALLY wanted a 3lb. Hershey's chocolate heart. I spent over $20 on one GIANT chocolate heart. And he ate it. all. in 3 days. Needless to say, he got a pretty intense stomach ache and he didn't asked for it again this year. :)   02.14.11 - 9:24am

Maryellen Godinez - My husband and I aren't into the whole Valentines Day thing. When we got married he told me I am not gonna use one day a year to tell you I love you and stand in line with every other man buying flowers. So he celebrates Ground Hog day as a love day and asks me to be his ground hog every year. Kind of funny. I think we are the only couple out there that makes ground hog day a love day. Can you believe hallmark doesn't even have ground hog day cards..  02.14.11 - 9:23am

Erin Lindstrom - Jasmine- Even though I am not a photographer myself, I have read your blog for about 4 years. My youth pastor who is a photographer showed me your site, and from that day on I have been hooked. I love looking at your photos, but besides that the beautiful story that comes from your photography. Thank you for your realness and allowing readers to get a hint of your life. Reading your blog really shows the world how you have allowed the Lord to be in your business, life and how you are living your dream with Him.   02.14.11 - 9:10am

Mari - Hollllllllaaa right back at ya sweet thang! Happy 1,000th blog post! I have to say, I agree with you on the V-Day thing 100%. My hubs before bed last night said, "Come here I want to show you something. I got you something for V-Day!" I freaked because I knew I had nothing. I was running around 4 kids 3 teens and a baby all weekend. It was Bieber fever in our house after all. Bieber trumps all..lol. So I quickly pulled out my pen and paper and just wrote from the heart a love letter. I can honestly say, I could live without the store bought stuff myself, it's all in the everyday life sincere actions and love that I adore most. Happy V-Day!XOXO MJ  02.14.11 - 9:09am

Dave Bryson - First, let me say Happy Valentine's Day to you! Jasmine, you have a been a huge inspiration and joy to read, watch and follow. The thing I admire most about you, is your work life balance and desire to help others - Virtual Volunteering. The entire photography community has benefited from your continued honesty and motivating posts. My wife is not a photograph, but she reads your posts everyday and through you, she has a much better understanding of my work. My wife is constantly quoting you to inspire me to keep going. Last year was my first year as a professional wedding photographer and you helped me everyday. Thank you so much! Much Love, Dave  02.14.11 - 8:50am

Erica Rose - I love how you're so real on here Jasmine...no pretenses with you. When I read your blog I often remember the session during Laura & Billy's wedding (I bought those videos) where someone asked you a question and you looked over at JD before answering with a look like "should I really tell them?" and he said "Just be real." Seems to be the mantra for you two and its working for ya! Blessings, Erica  02.14.11 - 8:49am
Mariflor Bernal Bulatao - Happy Valentine's Day Jasmine (barf!). just kidding, but my hubby & I don't really celebrate. Rather, I love to send cards out to my sisters & close friends. Now I sign them off from my daughter, which makes it more "cute"! Thanks for the laughs...  02.14.11 - 8:49am

Catherine Mombourquette - Dear Jasmine, Your blog posts are truly a joy to read, it's like having a coffee with a friend! After sitting in on your presentation at the pdn conference last October, you really inspired me to start thinking about who I am and how I communicate with the world. In fact, I left your presentation that day with a completely different outlook on my direction and to be honest, almost feeling a little uneasy... Uneasy because it was as if during the presentation you were looking directly at me and telling me "NO ONE WILL DO THIS FOR YOU!" "if this is what you want, YOU have to go after it!" and so... I am :) I have a longgg road ahead of me and no, it isn't easy, but because of you I know it's possible :) During the presentation I was sitting next to JD (I didn't know it at the time) and at one point you told the story of when JD said to you " I would rather see you fail miserably at something you love, than succeed at something you hate." It was then I clued into who I was sitting next to, JD looked at you with so much respect in his eyes :) Jasmine, I am also very lucky to have a wonderfully supportive husband, whom after I told him this story, completely agrees with JD and wants me to paint the story of my life as I see it, not a reproduction :) So, today, on the day we honour love, I raise my glass to you and JD, my husband Trevor and I, and all others who are fuelled by love. Love of each other, love of passion, and love of dreams :) Happy Valentines Day! Catherine Mombourquette  02.14.11 - 8:38am

Jules - Congrats, you inspire so many by doing what you love. I’ve written down and saved what you said JD told back then that freed you to live your dreams aloud, "I'd rather see you fail at something you love than succeed at something you hate." It inspires me to be brave and make the leap too!  02.14.11 - 8:31am

Allison Waken - I'd panic if my husband asked about gifts too! Congrats on your 1000th post and heres to many more!  02.14.11 - 8:30am
Bogdan Staiculescu - Wow, at the rate at which you're posting, I thought you had reached and passed well over the 100th blog post quite some time ago - but here I am mistaken. Well go get JD and toast to another 1000 blog posts, rejoice, and then get back to showing the world what may become world heritage material - that is your wedding photos - after you'll be gone. I for one, will rejoice under the pretense that this is my first comment on your blog ever - for I usually like to be the silent reader, only admiring the photos, cause hey, after all a picture is worth a thousand words, right?! - and then I'll get back to drooling at your posts, and sighing at the thought that it'll probably take me this one and another lifetime to post 1000 times on a blog - of any kind. I'm wondering if those 1000 pennies you're giving away - and which if I win; I'd like to be in the form of a iTunes Gift Card, rather than Target, seeing as to how I don't live in the US of A - are actual pennies, which wikipedia tells me is the one hundreth part of a dollar, or just some jasmine-ish mexican (?) type of saying dollars. Anyways, even money to buy a song on iTunes would be an a-ma-zing gift! :D p.s. People should make a statue of you. You're really an icon of these times, and I hope that even though you're modest and you may blush at the sight of these words, you realise the power to influence you have on us! :)  02.14.11 - 8:30am
Morgan M - Jasmine, I break "Girl Code" every day. I'm the one that doesn't have anything planned for Valentines day. Couldn't even pick a card because they didn't sound like something I'd say. LOL Luckily I have the most amazing Fiancee! Have a blessed day with JD! Lots of love y'all's way!  02.14.11 - 8:29am
Shannon Lamaster - Congrats!!! I dont think I have enough to say to make 1,000 blog posts. :)  02.14.11 - 8:29am

Brooke - My husband and I are celebrating our first valentines together as husband and wife.... and I had the same chilling thought as he said.... so when should we exchange presents..... we NEVER did valentines day before... we have to do it now?!!!! Isn't it about having valentines day every day and not only on the holiday?! I made a mushy card (b/c I'm really wordy obviously) and several promises/commitments to him... and a promise to make a yummy dinner when I get home from work!  02.14.11 - 8:28am

Priti Shikotra - Happy valentines day sweety! Hope you and JD had a good one. Myself - well we aren't doing anything this year as we are off travelling soon. Plus why have a day where you show 'love and affection' this should be a daily thing! :-) have a good one!  02.14.11 - 8:26am
Cherie Hogn - I think I've done that for a couple of Valentine's Days before - but I think I have this year covered!  02.14.11 - 8:26am

Taina Cunningham - Awesome blog Jasmine. I honestly don't think I have EVER read one of your bogs that didn't leave a smile on my face. You are a huge inspiration to me and my business.

Brett - 1,000 pennies! Pick me! Pick me!  02.14.11 - 8:25am
Kim - Well....let me just say. I'm a girly girl..and I'm not really big on the whole Valentine's day stuffed bears, chocolates, etc. either. And..even though I love flowers, I believe that was probably the demise of V-Day for me. I worked in the wholesale floral industry for a few years...and let me say. Valentines Day was ....well...absolutely the hardest time for work, no sleep, 18 hour days in preparation, to where it became an I-don't-want-to-see-another-flower-for-the-rest-of-my-life feeling. BUT....that didn't last too long. :) Love reading your blog! You are truly an inspiration.   02.14.11 - 8:25am
Kelly - Happy Valentine's Day to you and JD!! Love from Arkansas!  02.14.11 - 8:25am

Liz - 1000th blog post.. wow...that's awesome..I barely am trying to get one weekly on mine. thanks for always keeping us inspired and motivated!  02.14.11 - 8:25am
Chelsea McGowan - Congratulations, Jasmine! We just celebrated our 5,000th blog comment... obviously, you surpassed that like WHOA a long time ago, but it was a huge deal for us. :) Oh... and we're V-Day lame, too. We gave each other Valentine's hi-fives. Here's to 1,000 more blog posts!  02.14.11 - 8:24am
Denise Nicole - Ohhhh I so heart you!!!! I am that girly girl, mushy, romantic and all that kinda stuff. Ha ha. But trust me you are not ruining girl code. I love someone who can make me laugh and THIS is why I keep coming back to your blog daily. Oh and because you post puurrty pictures as well. ;) Have a very happy day! xo  02.14.11 - 8:24am
Jeremiah Daniel - I'd much rather run into you at WPPI this year than get 1,000 pennies, its my first year and I can't wait. Thanks for being so awesome, this blog and its 1,000 posts was a HUGE part of my inspiration for starting my life in Photography Thanks! Jeremiah:)  02.14.11 - 8:24am

Alicia - Congrats on the 1000th post and Happy Valentine's Day!   02.14.11 - 8:24am
Lori Collett - I've already insulted my husband by saying, "Like I'd expect jewelry or pearls from you on Valentine's Day." I feel the same way about it that you do... for me it was the day in high school that I'd snuggle in with "Emma" and think about the someday of snuggling down with the Love of my life... Now it's here, but I'm too Jaded to worry about it :) Ha ha ha...  02.14.11 - 8:24am
Kali Norton - Jasmine, I ruin girl code too by being far from "giddy" about Valentines Day. I think JD's cooking and helping you keep your sanity EVERYDAY makes him an amazing husband without the need for the chocolates and ooey gooey stuffed animals.  02.14.11 - 8:24am
Haley Dionne - I know exactly what you mean!! I'm not that type of girl either... I don't like mushy stuff. (: Congrats on your 1000th blog post!! How cool is that!? Keep up the good work... Love your photography! (: Haley  02.14.11 - 8:24am
Cristina - 1,000 pennies? I am IN, baby! As for the fine print, you are pretty good at buying cookies, I think I'll trust you with the chocolates as well. :D Happy anniversary, J*!  02.14.11 - 8:24am
Jeannette - Happy Valentine's Day! :-)  02.14.11 - 8:24am

Chris - I thoroughly look forward to your posts not only because you are an amazing photographer but also because you always manage to make me smile. Keep rockin'.   02.14.11 - 8:23am
Mayra Perez - Here's to another mil...happy love day! ;)  02.14.11 - 8:23am
Kelly Higgins - Howdy, Happy Valentine's Day from Arkansas!!!!   02.14.11 - 8:22am
Andrea - FINALLY!!!! I'm not alone. I thought I was the only one that hated this day every year. I hated it when I was single and don't like it now that I'm married. (My husband scored!) I prefer to celebrate our love every day with having a happy marriage. Anyway, pennies or chocolates I'll take either one. Here's to us, the non-romantic ones.  02.14.11 - 8:22am
Wayfaring Wanderer - My bf and I don't exchange V-day gifts. I bought him some cupcakes yesterday, that should count, though :o)  02.14.11 - 8:22am
Heather - I am with you. I'm not the biggest fan of Valentine's Day. I think you should show someone you love them whenever you feel like it, not just because we've commercialized a day. And chocolates don't necessarily mean "I Love You" but they are tasty reminders.  02.14.11 - 8:22am
Justine - I totally feel the same way about Valentine's Day ... and then had the same last minute panic this morning. Maybe I can make something out of construction paper??!! Congrats on the 1000 post :)  02.14.11 - 8:22am
Amber Ketola - Happy Valentine's Day! Congratulations on your 1,000th blog post! You have much to be proud of!  02.14.11 - 8:22am
Tracy Grant - I feel the same Jasmine..now I have to go get chocolates too!  02.14.11 - 8:22am
Elizabeth Langford - Don't worry Jasmine... you're not the only wife that totally "blanked" on getting their man a gift... I haven't even gotten mine a card yet! Happy Valentine's Day to you, JD and your four legged cupid.  02.14.11 - 8:21am
Kimberly butler - Oh the joys of target. Great story, I love coming here and reading about your life, it makes me happy. :) hey, i'll take 1,000 pennies! I'll put them in my super huge coin jar!   02.14.11 - 8:21am

Looking forward to the next 1000 posts - you're so inspirational! x  02.14.11 - 8:19am
Ian Creelman - I know that sinking feeling when you forget a gift. That's when you pull out the big guns and ad lib poetry or break into song as though you'd been working on it for weeks. Even if you bomb, making a fool out of yourself always looks romantic.   02.14.11 - 8:19am
Maria Sievert - Frequent lurker/stalker, I mean follower-first time poster. So, I should probably win since this is my first post. (Really and truly-thanks for sharing so much of you in such an eloquent way. Informative and entertaining, doesn't get much better.)  02.14.11 - 8:19am
Melanie Lenhart - I am your first on your 1000th! Yeah me! Congrats - you are a breath of fresh air! Thanks for sharing...everything... Looking forward to another 1000!   02.14.11 - 8:19am
Lauren - My first comment to say thank you for being so inspiring,, happy (unmushy) Valentine's Day and congratulations on your 1,000th post!  02.14.11 - 8:19am
Kim - I'm right there with ya on not liking the mushy v-day stuff. My hubby and I have been married almost 7 years so I see no need to run out and get a crazy amount of red and pink stuff topped off with chocolate. Although, I did get a dozen cake balls from our favorite bakery for after dinner, to share with the kids. : )  02.14.11 - 8:19am
crystal - Congrats on 1000! I never leave comments, but I have to ruin "girl code" right along with you... i hate that people feel they have to act a certian way just b/c the date on the calendar tells them to. Maybe that's why my husband and I (and maybe you and JD) are still happy and in love b/c we know how to show each other on a regular basis?! Just a thought :) Keep the bloggities coming!  02.14.11 - 8:19am
kara - haha! your sense of humor is awesome! discounted heart shaped chocolates....! your photos are great but your blog posts rank right up there with them. not many people are as honest in their blogs as you! {loved the JD statement about fixing your hair the other day!} :)  02.14.11 - 8:18am
Michelle Peters - Certainly it MUST be up to your sweet hubby to keep the romance going. :O) No need for you to run out and get him something. He KNOWS you love him. Also, I LOVE reading your blog, and your whole site, for that matter. I am a huge fan! The CreativeLive course is on my iPod so I can watch them whenever I feel my creativity slipping. You ROCK the photography world! Thanks for sharing!  02.14.11 - 8:18am

Dale - Mere and I inadvertently exchanged gifts last night. She handed over a gray cardigan as I walked through the door with one that I had just bought - story of her life. So then I had to make amends by promising to return it (hers was better anyway, right?) and then giving her the gift I got for her. (It was a quartet for our wedding reception). Ah, Valentine's Day.  02.14.11 - 8:17am

Tuesday - I hear ye! I'm not that cheesy as well but loves to watch chick flick films! However I'm happy to see watching old couple celebrating this special day as they hold hand in hand while walking along the beach/ park... that is so sweet really!  02.14.11 - 8:17am

Judy - We don't do Valentine's... does that make us totally unromantic? It's not that I mind a day dedicated to the one I love, I just think the red and pink of it all is over the top.

Kris - I know, seriously, I always forget about valentines day! It's sad being a wedding photographer and not remembering a date dedicated to love. Maybe it's because I'm like you, not really a fluffy teddy bear type. Nothin' wrong with that!   02.14.11 - 8:16am

Sue - Happy Valentine's Day to you Jasmine! No gifts here and it's ok with us. Just a handmade card (from my hubby) drawn of stick figures and the most perfect words (he's the best word guy), made with love. That's what's most important, right? Enjoy your day!  02.14.11 - 8:11am

Bill Raab - My wife and I had decided to not exchange gifts but she surprised me with a trinket she picked up at the grocery store. I guess we will call it even since I gave her a dozen roses on Friday for her pre-birthday... another event we agreed to not exchange gifts on. Love is grand... and full of surprises for which I am generally grateful :-)  02.14.11 - 8:09am

Sadie L. - I agree, I am situational girly! I love being loved by my husband but I am not such a fan of the pre-planned love days. I think the smooches we he gets home every night are the best!   02.14.11 - 8:06am
