"Wanna Come to Oz?"

I have a dear, dear friend who lives in Australia. Heidi. We also met at Capernwray Bible School in New Zealand over 7 years ago. She was one of my room mates for the first term and we clicked instantly. She only attended the Bible School for 3 months before moving on but those 3 months were enough to solidify a pretty great friendship.

In February of 2008, my husband and I were able to fly to Australia to attend Heidi's wedding. What an honour that was to be able to celebrate that day with her! Last September she came to me to see my daughter shortly after she was born. Now that's some friendship.

We don't talk often, the time difference is a bit of a bugger, but when we do it usually lasts a few hours. There's no holding back. There's no "how's the weather?" small talk. It's just full on, right away. I love it. And it only costs me 4 cents a minute to call her through my regular phone company. No 10-10- cheap long distance number or anything.

Well, Heidi's sister recently got engaged to a fine chap )who I was able to meet in January when they were travelling around here). I threw out the idea of me photographing the wedding to Heidi during one of our more recent conversations but didn't think anything would actually come of it. This last Wednesday I received an email from her with the subject line: Wanna come to Oz?

Ummmm... heck yes I do!!!!!!

So I am! In March. Tickets are booked. Holy cow! What an amazing opportunity for me! Not only do I get to visit my dear friend again, but I get to photograph another wedding, in a gorgeous country at a gorgeous venue, with a stunning couple! Seriously, could there BE anything better than that? I submit that there cannot! =)

That's all for today. Just wanted to share my excitement with you!
