I can't believe it's already the end of the year! It's been over a week since I've blogged too. I've just been at home with John enjoying some time off. He's got this entire week, and at the last minute was able to take Christmas day off as well. I mentioned before that I was feeling so blue about the holidays, but they turned out pretty nicely. Nothing super exciting to report, just a quiet relaxing time with good food, lots of FaceTime, and celebrating later with friends.
Now that it's the New Year's Holiday most people are off visiting family, so Tokyo feels very quiet and emptied out. Traditionally on New Year's Eve Japanese people will eat noodles (soba in particular) to symbolize longevity in the new year. John's not a big fan of soba (though I love it) but we had our favorite ramen, so maybe that counts?
I want to thank everyone that reads this blog, it's meant so much to me to have this outlet, and it makes me so happy to know that people out there are reading. I've grown and learned so much in the past year, and tried to share a lot of that through this blog. I hope that 2014 brings wonderful things to both you and me. Happy New Year!
