To Azuki with love, from Japan

I just love receiving the sweetest things via snail mail. Don’t you? :)

Yesterday, I received an awesome surprise from my friend Marjorie. She’s based in Japan. I met her in the community Weddings at Work (W@W) while we were both preparing our respective weddings, and I think it’s wonderful that we’ve grown to be good friends.

Well, OK… It may not have been a surprise, since Marjorie had to ask B about our new home address, but I had no idea what she’d be sending over!

Inside the tattered envelope was this card. I still have to get used to the idea that Poppy+B now equals three!

The card even came with its own subtitles! Haha! Thanks for the translation, Marjorie :)

The card also came with this yummy outfit for Azuki:

B and I can’t wait for Azuki to grow, so she could start wearing this! Isn’t it adorable?

Yes, I do agree Azuki would discover what a great place this world is :)

Thanks again, Atsushi, Marjorie and Yui! Yui, we do hope we get to meet you in person real soon :) Azuki would very much like to thank you in person. You made her so happy!

Happy mid-week, everyone!

What I’d like to bottle up

What I’d like to bottle up: Azuki’s smile.

Feel free to blame her for not having this mommy online as much ;-)

Seriously, while I do miss you guys (I really do!), it’s not rocket science to choose be with her over having my online life. You’ll hear from me more often soon though, especially since I’ve signed up for next month’s BYW Boot Camp (woo! finally!).

Hope you’re all well. And if I could bottle up Azuki’s smile, you’d be the first to get one :) I promise you’d cherish it as much as I do.

Stay super!
