Let’s start where it all began, shall we? One […]

Jen Johnson - When I saw that you had been selected, I was so stoked for you! I remember meeting you a couple of years ago at that random SmugMug meeting that you came up to in the OC and it seemed like while you had talent, you just weren’t sure what to do with your business. I watched CL off and on last week and I loved all your questions and comments. You rock, dude!April 12, 2011 – 12:10 pm

Sean - Really…really great post! Watch you this past weekend and thought you were great! Loved the personality and the intelligent questions. Really hope this weekend is the start of something fantastic for you! I’m really just starting out in his business from square one. I’ve got a lot to learn and I’ll be following you closely! Can’t wait to see what this weekend does for you!April 12, 2011 – 10:14 am

Ashley Goodwin - Tim! Ohhhhh Tim.
Never in a million years would I think such a suave gentlemen such as yourself would make me cry, but dammit you did! I can’t thank you enough for the kind, encouraging words, or for the sweet tea birthday vodka. All of us were the perfect compliments to one another and I enjoyed every side splitting moment I spent with you. And hey, don’t hate on the gay bar, I promised I would save you if it came down to it! You & Anthony were such troopers for hangin’ late-night style, made for a birthday to remember. I can confidently say the birthday curse is officially over, all thanks to you guys!!

Once I make my life change, we shall have a skype date to toast with Patron, deal?? Hopefully I’ll see ya sooner rather than later, but until then, I’ll be stalking.

I love ya I love ya I love ya!

Jennifer Jar - It’s so crazy because I feel like I know all of you from just watching you guys online. Such an amazing experience and you are right. A MULTITUDE of people were touched and moved by Jasmine. It’s so inspiring to see how one person is so giving and willing to help others. I am excited to see where you will go in the future! :)April 11, 2011 – 6:19 pm

ashley barnett - Awesome post! I can’t wait to see what all of you do in the future. I’ll have to make sure Ashley keeps me posted on all of your whereabouts! ;) You guys were so lucky to have the opportunity to not only work with Jasmine, but also to work with each other!April 11, 2011 – 3:47 pm

Faith Bowyer - Coming from the perspective of an online viewer, I could tell how close of a bond all 7 of you had by Day 2. Amazing. I’m glad that you all had such a great weekend. I loved every second of creative live, and I learned so much from Jasmine. Thanks for your funny comments, and questions Tim – you kept it real :)April 11, 2011 – 12:45 pm

Erin Oveis Brant - This is a perfect summary of the experience…you definitely have a way with bringing it all full circle! To say that I’m happy I met you would be the understatement of the year. I love you like a brother and it feels appropriate that we didn’t get to say goodbye…it feels more like a “see you later” because I know I definitely will. Keep on doing what you do!

Naina - Oh my God! That is the most touching thing I have read till now in 2011 and you’re totally right about each of those people – I wasn’t there but I was watching online and it was incredible. All of you were inspiring and insanely talented. Oh, and don’t forget that you really do sound like Matthew McConoughey ;) And you were wearing Candice’s hair pin – it looked gorgeous :D Thanks for sharing!April 11, 2011 – 10:45 am

My second day in paris was a rainy one. (And that’s an understatement) I headed out mid-morning, and after about 30 minutes it really started to come down hard. This is when I decided I needed to get an umbrella. I stopped by a tourist stand to grab one real quick, and there were two […]
