Setsubun is Almost Here! (Throw them beans!)

If only Setsubun was as cool as this commercial makes it seem:

There is a big bean throwing fest in my area. If I can only find a way to disguise myself as a child, I could throw some beans around and drive off those terrible oni.

(If they look like the guy in that commercial, I’d probably upend the beans and be like, “all out, Mr. Demon.  Guess you’ll have just to take me with you” )

A girl can dream.  😉

When I was in my twenties, I moved to Japan and met a man there. We embarked on our adventure through life and love. I have lived with him in Japan ever since. We want to start a family, but that is proving difficult. I struggle with infertility. We almost had a child, but that ended in tragedy. Now we enjoy each day and hope that one day we'll hear the pitter-patter of little feet and the bubbly laughter of a child. In the meantime, I enjoy writing, love, studying, traveling, and working. These posts are my thoughts and stories of my life here.
