A series of thank yous......

I was finally allowed to know my BIG birthday surprise this past Friday, as Candice revealed, via Jasmine Star's blog, that we will be taking a trip to California to have a photo shoot with the amazingly talented and gifted Jasmine.

Now, I had guessed this as a possible option (see a video post below), but Candice was very good at always saying no to anything I would guess and telling me I wasn't even close. Secretly, I was hoping deep down that this would be the reveal as we had been talking for quite some time about someday getting the opportunity to have a session with Jasmine--but I totally didn't anticipate it happening so soon....and finding out via Jasmine's blog. So if I seemed a bit caught off guard...it's because I was. It was one of those moments where you're like, Did that really have my name written there...and is this really going to happen?

Anyway, here comes a short list of thank yous to those who are making this possible and fulfilling a few dreams at once on this upcoming trip:

Candice...my wife, my love...thank you for being so thoughtful, creative, secretive, funny, and loving to do something like this for me...and us! Thank you, thank you, thank you...I love you!

Jasmine...thank you for being willing to have a photo shoot with us and for being so gracious to help with the reveal...we can't wait to meet you (and maybe JD, too!).

JT....sorry I didn't get you in on the video, but at that time I didn't know we'd be seeing you as well....thanks for the hookup when we're in San Diego...I look forward to meeting you and hearing some awesome stories about Candice.

To all those who participated in this adventure financially or with ideas....thank you for keeping a great secret and for partnering with us.

To all those who posted comments on ours or Jasmine's blog...thank you for your words of excitement and joy as we prepare for our first West Coast trip together!

We will most definitely keep you updated as we prepare for this exciting trip!


Since the music is now fading in, I will now step down from receiving my Grammy and begin packing. :)
