Hey, guys. I know, it's been a while. I have a good excuse this time, though: I'm in America again! Yohei is here with me, too. His visa was approved and we both made it. I came in the beginning of June and spent some time with my family at the Ozarks. It was a… Continue reading long time, no see!
Yohei stayed with me in America for a month that seemed much shorter than it actually was. Luckily, being a senior, I didn’t have a ridiculously busy schedule.

It has been a heck of a week. Along with worrying about everything that I need to do to prepare for the big move, we have been working on Hubby's visa and work has been absolutely insane. We were also dealing with personal family issues and wondering how in the world we were going to… Continue reading what a week!
In my last post, I wrote that my mother wants to invest in my B&B and help me run it when the time comes. I'm extremely excited to get it up and running, but I want to take a step back and stop talking about me and my dreams for a moment. I want to… Continue reading my mother
