i'm thankful to have this chance to live in japan, and for the many opportunities that i am so very lucky to have.
i'm thankful for my wonderful friends and family, and the ability to keep in touch and feel close to people that i care about, even though i am thousands of miles away.
today it's thanksgiving day in the u.s., and for those of you who celebrate it, i hope you have a lovely time gathered with family or friends to share a special meal.
i had a little mini vacation this week (i'm thankful that i have the freedom to do that too!) filled with local sightseeing, cooking and learning and eating, shopping and maple leaf viewing, and more eating, and even a japanese thanksgiving dinner! and i will tell you all about it soon, i promise, as soon as i get caught up on a few things around here.
