Down Under + The Dalai Lama

Tonight we leave for Melanie and Dave's wedding in Brisbane. Melanie emailed yesterday to suggest, "You should push that little belly as far out as possible and maybe they’ll upgrade you so you can lie down? Worth a try....." I love a bride looking out for mama and wee babe.

Grant and I are so excited to shoot shoot shoot and get a little vacation time squeezed in before and after.

Here is a photo of me last time I was in Australia. It was about 8+yrs ago. Now I can compare pouch sizes with the kangaroos.

Oh! and last time I was in Sydney I happened to be in the lobby of our hotel and the Dalai Lama happened to be staying there and happened to walk past me right as I was walking past him... AND I happened to be holding my 1st ever digital camera the nikon coolpix. I just happened to get this photo of him looking right at me and smiling as I was being swept away by security. I think I had a moment with him, don't you?

It was awesome. I wonder if he ever thinks about me...

I will have internet but limited phone so email if you need me but don't expect a super quick response unless you are my Brisbane bride or His Holiness.
