Joy in Japan

I love cuddling up to Riley after he has been gone all day. He works some pretty long hours and the time we have together is more precious than before. This past week he curled me up in his arms and asked if i was happy, he asks if i knew that I was pretty. He told me that he thinks about me all day and can't wait to come home.  It made me feel so good. Long days apart aren't exactly fun, but we are finding joy in japan and making the most of the moments together. Lots of city exploring & we took a day hiking trip!

Our street views! Our apartment is the grey one with the blue triangles in the above right picture.

Our home station. 

Bird poop. We hang dry clothes now . . . and this happened. Sick.
Ward Halloween Party costumes & Hot Chocolate that Riley surprised me with from a vending machine on an especially cold morning. 

 Cool skate park we found on top of a building, with pretty terrible Mexican food. 

Hiking!! A little foggy & crowded but fun trip just outside Tokyo.

First Month in Tokyo

We have officially been in Tokyo for one month!!! We kept saying that to each other yesterday. One month! It feels like we just stepped off the plane & have been here forever all at the same time. 

This month Riley started his job, we spoke in church, got an apartment and furnished it, ate out more times than we have our entire dating and marriage life combined and finished the first season of Poldark! 

 I love school uniforms in japan, this girl just reminded me of the Matilda of Japan!

Indian Curry & Naan everyday... 

 mexican nachos & american eagle, feels like home. . . 

Sushi! Riley's favorite. I'm kinda obsessed with wasabi. 

Ikea: A love/hate relationship. This is how i spend my days!

One saturday we spend rolling this free kitchen counter around tokyo for an hour, very eventful.
