TGIF! Heck yeah, it’s Friday!

I learned how to say “Thank God it’s Friday!” in Japanese.

It’s “Hanakin!”.

But when I tried that out on my husband, he asked, “Who taught you that?”

I replied, “My student.  Why what’s wrong?”

He explained, “that’s something the older generation said.”

So I replied, “Well, that makes it’s vintage.  Yeah vintage phrase!”

So, “TGIF” or “Hanakin!” ya’ll.

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.
