A Reflection on 2012

What a year it has been! We saw a whole lotta family. We rented out our house. We moved to Japan. I met some incredible people. My monkeys turned one. I threw A LOT of parties–and I mean  A LOT. I was separated from my husband, reunite, separated again, and reunited again. I stopped breastfeeding. I spent my first night away from my monkeys. I traveled to Singapore.  I watched as my little babes have become little boys. Phew.

Something I have NOT done a lot of ? Document any of this on this here blog. So one of my new years resolutions? To blog once a week. And I really mean it. I really do enjoy sharing my little projects, ideas, and musings with you!  So because I’ve been a big ol’ slacker, I’m going to share with you a few of the highlights of the year and hope that partially makes up for a year of no blogging. In no particular order…

Exploring Japan with my little family.


Donning a yukata (a summer kimono) and dancing in the Bon Odori Festival.


Getting to know some fabulous new friends.






Watching Miles and Ollie become friends.


Hosting Japanese friends in my home.



Getting some one-on-one time with the boys during summer swimming lessons.





Exploring Singapore with my family.IMG_2134



Dressing up with my little munchkins on Halloween (although Miles wouldn’t leave his ewok head piece on).



Watching two little boys become obsessed with plastic cutlery (as we called it “the security forks”).



And there you have it! Some of my favorite moments of 2012! I can’t wait to see what happens in 2013! Stay tuned!
