Festivity after festivity! New Year celebration is taken much more seriously than Christmas in Japan, but my American husband and I keep our Christmas celebration as authentic as possible. We had a wonderful cozy Christmas with a new family member and finally a new Christmas tree. Now we are getting ready for the second round of end of the year celebrations. We will start all over again. Cleaning, shopping, eating, drinking, all that things. And it lasts three days this time. Déjà vu after déjà vu!  

I am exited for 2016. Having a new baby,  I feel that my family is complete now. We are finally ready for a new chapter of our story.  I wish us all a happy new year, and another step closer to World Peace ☮✝☪🕉✡.
