B-u-n-d-t cake...

JAPAN | Sunday, 21 Jun 2009 | Views [1408] | Comments [2]

(Coming from a huge extended family, I'm a big fan of the movie, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding!  My title is from that movie.) Most of you know the fun Brandon and I have been having on okinawayardsales.com since we got here.   We’ve found great ... Read more >


Brandon no tanjiyobi!

JAPAN | Wednesday, 17 Jun 2009 | Views [672]

Today was my 27th birthday! Yeah I know its hard for me to believe too! I spent most of my day at work, but it went fairly fast so I cannot complain.  When I got home I found my amazing wife had made cookies with frosting on them!  After supper ... Read more >


Gimli

JAPAN | Wednesday, 17 Jun 2009 | Views [516]

Gimli is slowly adjusting to life with us in our apartment.  Quite a change from a house with four boys under the age of five!  He's been enjoying playing catch with Brandon and me, although when he gets tired, instead of actually running after the ball, ... Read more >

Cookies!

JAPAN | Wednesday, 17 Jun 2009 | Views [495]

I made good use of some of the cooking presents I got for my birthday from Mimi & Pappy today!  I made cookies this afternoon to share with our apartment building neighbors and for Brandon to take to work.  I tried out a new sugar cookie recipe and ... Read more >


Raindrops keep falling on my head...

JAPAN | Monday, 15 Jun 2009 | Views [541]

Okinawa's Rainy Season is usually in May, but this year, May was relatively dry and now we are having two weeks of rain in June.  As much as it's not fun to coax Gimli out in the rain or haul groceries to my car, we need this rain!  We may be surrounded ... Read more >


Arielle no tanjiyobi!

JAPAN | Monday, 15 Jun 2009 | Views [643]

[Arielle's birthday!] My 26 th birthday was very happy, indeed!   It began with a voicemail from my parents and grandparents singing happy birthday to me and continued with visiting with my parents and Aunt Amy and Gary Joe on Skype and getting another ... Read more >


Meet Gimli...

Say hello (or konnichiwa) to the new addition to our family!  Gimli is an eight-month old, solid 50 pounds of muscle, English Bulldog.  He came to our house from a family that could no longer take care of him.  We were happy to give him a new home!  We ... Read more >

Castiglione della Pescaia

ITALY | Friday, 5 Jun 2009 | Views [578]

After a “farewell and see you soon” to my parents, the four of us made our way to Castiglione della Pescaia to spend our last day on the coast.   Wow, that sounded so easy, didn’t it?   To be honest, Garmin did deliver us right to the front door of ... Read more >

Colle Val D'Elsa

ITALY | Friday, 5 Jun 2009 | Views [559]

Another small village town we stopped at was Colle Val D’Elsa.   This one was like the other little medieval villages that pop out of the top of hills in the Tuscan countryside, but unlike San Gimignano, it was geared for residents of the town, ... Read more >

San Gimignano

ITALY | Friday, 5 Jun 2009 | Views [1078]

We visited the medieval town and fort of San Gimignano during our stay at the Aguritismo.   The town is surrounded by high walls on all sides with two large gates at either end.   It is mostly a tourist-driven town now, with many shops in which we ... Read more >

Fattoria Poggio Alloro

ITALY | Friday, 5 Jun 2009 | Views [1151]

While I love our Garmin GPS device, when you don’t have a precise address for a destination, it makes things quite a bit more difficult than you ever imagined.   Add to that the stress of the rental car and navigating crazy switchbacks and narrow ... Read more >
