May the magic and the wonder of the holiday season stay with you throughout the coming year. Happy Holidays to all my friends and family all around the world!
This is still one of my favorite Christmas Eve photos from our overseas livin' days. We lived in a northern Japanese town called Akita, where is snowed nonstop. Yikes! I don't miss that. But what I do miss is forming new Christmas traditions. Every year we had new ways of celebrating our most beloved holiday and each year was filled with new friends and experiences. So whether it was walking down snowy street of Akita to celebrate with Korean bbq or simply staying home, each year overseas was memorable in it's own way. This year we are happy to form new memories state side and reflect on those crazy - fun - once in a lifetime experiences we got to enjoy as expats. Happy Holidays everyone! May they be filled with joy, happiness and plenty of new family traditions!
