My Husband Brought Me Flowers and Cake

Actually, my husband and I have never brought each other flowers before.  We’ve never been a flower-power couple.

So I was really touched and surprised when he came home and surprised me with this:


He even wrote a beautiful message in the flowers, eking out his best English, but I’m not allowed to take a photo of that. He felt it was too personal and asked me not to share it anywhere.

So his heartfelt message of love remains our secret.

This on the heels of my friends taking me out to dinner.

I’m feeling quite loved today 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.
