Japan- ONE YEAR!



Today marks one year of international living in Japan! 
It has been the very best and the hardest. 
It has gone by so fast and so slow! 
So much has happened this year. . .

I feel like a whole different person now than I did getting on that airplane one year ago. I have so many things I wanted to write and experiences and struggles to express with life abroad but all that really comes to mind when I sit down to type is gratitude, and wasabi.

We have made the very best friends here in Japan and love our church ward family. Riley started his career and loves his job and coworkers at Nike. I went through my whole pregnancy not speaking any Japanese and gave birth here in Tokyo. Becoming a mom has been the highlight of my life!

This year has had so many ups and downs and I'm so grateful for the experiences and growth that has come with life out of the comfort zone. I love the little home we have made and the simplicity of life here. We don't have any plans of moving anytime soon. Just wanted to document this accomplishment & express gratitude.
