I am a beloved wife and a mother of two beautiful boys☻
I am Japanese but I studied abroad in the United States for over 8yrs (started at junior in HS and got my MA in Communication).
I used to use English all the time at work even after coming back to Japan, but since I left my old job about 8yrs ago, I rarely use English in my life.
I am still in touch with some of my friends from the time I lived in the U.S, but it’s mainly leaving short comments and likes on social media.
The other day I finally video chatted w. my American best friend.
We kept in touch via social network, wrote to each other occasionally, and send Christmas gifts every year, but it had been almost 10 yrs since we talked on the phone.
I was shocked how difficult it was for me to talk naturally and convey exactly what I wanted to say.
I realized I must take time to think and write in English to retain it.
That’s basically why I decided to start blogging.
This blog will be all about what I treasure, appreciate, and am interested in.
My interests lies in fashion, nordic style interior(I am a big fan of minaperhonen, marimekko, ittala etc…), foods(I enjoy cooking and baking but I love eating the most), child rearing(I have almost 7yrs old boy and 2.5yrs old boy), international education and a lot more!
It7s boring to have texts only, so here is a picture of a dinner I cooked for my older son for his birthday last year.
His birthday is coming up again in 10 days, so I have to start planning for it(although we don’t get to do much because of the Covid…)
I appreciate any comments from anyone who shares same interests！
