Here we are!

Well folks, we've done it. We have moved to Japan.

I am still slightly in awe of this gigantic change in our lives and that for the most part - minus the actually having all of our stuff - we are through the majority of the hard parts of this move.

{Crosses fingers, knocks on all the wood}

It has taken me a while to get back on here, mainly because everything was coming up in Japanese for a while! Ha. Silly inter webs.

Clearly we are all still moving through this transition. The kiddos have been in RARE form, let me tell you. The sleeping has been rough, the behavior has been rough and well…it's all been very roller coaster-ish.

And just when we think they are settling in we throw a new curveball at them. Like, Daddy leaving to join his ship.

Which he did a week ago.

I have been hearing all sorts of terrible, heartstring pulling phrases from my darling three year old since Daddy has been gone:

"I want to go back to Norfolk!"
"I want my friends to live here too!"

and the real kicker

"This is not our home!"

Cue all the sadness and all the preggo hormonal tears.

...Oh, right. That.

On the off chance we aren't friends on Facebook, or you don't follow me on Instagram - we are expecting Baby G Number 3! Due to arrive St. Patrick's Day, 2015.

Year of Adventure, indeed!

Needless to say I have tons of catching up to do.

All those last monthly updates of Liam's first year... which are now about a year late.
All those last few house photos… which will probably make me cry.
AND all those bump photos/updates from this go round! Spoiler alert: We have been terrible about taking photos every week, so they will be truncated. Poor Baby 3.

Now that I can use the internet in English, I'm hoping to be back around this space more often to share our adventures with you.

Evelyn Rae is three, Liam is 19 months, and I am currently 17 weeks along with BG3!

…and - we live in Japan. Weird.


  1. Oh man! I can't imagine doing what you just did! But it sounds and looks like you handled it amazingly! Good luck making everything feel like "home" for a while! How long will you be there?
