I can’t believe it. February 1st marks our 6th month of living in Japan. I can’t tell if it feels like I’ve lived here for 6 days, 6 months, or 6 years. We have experienced many highs and lows, the good and bad, the beautiful and ugly. We have climbed and I have fallen. Haha 

I’m sure your thinking we must have enjoyed a huge celebration. Maybe? A “milestone” anyways. I bought new shoes. For the Hooptie. That’s right. New tires for our sweet ride. 

My girl appreciates a nice pair of shoes. $316 for tires and labor. Girlfriend only cost us $300. Pretty funny. Check out these sweet pieces of rubber. Nice tread. 

On a serious note, we miss you all. Everyday. 

We have enjoyed the opportunities we have had over the past six months and realize they come with sacrifices. Being away is obviously the biggest. 

You are always in our thoughts and heart. We love hearing from you and cherish your messages and phone calls. 

We love you all. To six months! Kanpie!
