Happy New Year everyone!
I am spending our whopping nine-day holiday off work for new years with family in Okinawa (if you don't know, it's the most southern prefecture in Japan). This means I am wearing short sleeves outside. Short sleeves in January! You don't know how giddy I am about this!
Well, the locals were wearing coats...but whatever. The wind is definitely both strong and cold but when the sun is out in the afternoon? BLISS.
This year my family (also including my grandma and uncle's family) drove out to my grandpa's grave, which is on a mountain looking towards the east, to see the sunrise above the ocean to welcome the new year together. The weather forecast said cloudy so we weren't sure we would be able to see the sunrise. But miracle of miracles, because the wind was so strong, it blew the clouds away just enough for us to see the glorious first light of 2015! Hurrah!
Did you go see the sunrise? Were you making new years resolutions?
I am good and ready to start this year. Looking forward to all the possibilities that 2015 holds for all of us. Wishing you all a fabulous new year! x
