December Link Love


Pressing pause for a  moment on my Melbourne photos to say hello to December!

Last month was a fun (and fast!) month filled with many friends visiting Tokyo. I got to hang out with friends from Kobe, San Francisco, and Canada (both Vancouver AND Toronto!). I have a couple of posts coming up about all that but I had a great time. I didn't have an official Thanksgiving dinner this year (thank god!) but it felt like the whole month was a big friendsgiving celebration for me!

Now December is one of my favorite months because of all the merriness that ensues (whoop!) and getting to be with family (whoop whoop!). Although it is also one of the most exhausting months because merriness ensues in the form of bonenkai and I have to travel to be with family. Not that I don't love a good bonenkai and a reason to travel. But when the bonenkai comes multiple days in a row, it can wear a girl down. And I know you've heard of the horrors of holiday travel, oh let me count the ways.

But the pros always far out way the cons, so it's all good. I am really looking forward to this season of being merry, eating nabe, and ending this year with my family in Okinawa!

What are you plans for this holiday? x

What time is it?

- Track your new year's resolutions on a Daruma Calendar.

- My favorite movie during the holidays...maybe ever! (What's yours?)

  1. My October was friends vosot month. Know how you felt.

    Also, Thanksgiving is in October, not November. At least in Canada. :)

    Way too many parties for me. Already had 3 so far. Got 2 more and wondering about a 3rd or more... Thank the gods I'm trained to drink now.

    1. My friends from Canada just left and my bff in Melbourne is coming to Japan this weekend! This month is continuing to be a friends month for me :D

      I think it's smart to have Thanksgiving in October. Having two major holidays 2 months in a row can be chaotic and/or stressful. Although it seems that is in fact an important part of the American life. Hmmm.

      "Trained to drink?" Hehe! Sounds like you've got a good plan for this season ;D
