Web-Image Wednesday.

While I don't agree that you should always say exactly what's on your mind,
fear is a silly thing. Be yourself.



How long has it been since I've posted a Tuesday blog?  Too long I suppose.

In the time between blogs, I have been to Australia, returned home, almost given up on some things and people I love, regained confidence, celebrated the birth of my Savior, spent time with my darling (it was not nearly enough though), said "mata ne" for a second time, and have only recently begun a recent journey back to productivity. I didn't really make resolutions this year...I just decided to start moving, deciding, and generally getting on with life. And enjoying it!

I will also take this time to blame Pinterest for my lack of verbage on this blog. I find that women everywhere are able to blame Pinterest for the lack of this or that with a smile thinking of all the creative planning and future projects they have pinned to their busy Pinterest boards, I might as well join the party (the well thought out, lovely party with colorful handmade decorations and tasty treats that everyone will want the recipe for). I may have just decided that I'm super bad at blogging anyway - so whatevs. That won't stop me from dropping by occasionally to spill about life, love, and the pursuit of Japan.

Speaking of the Land of the Rising Sun, I have finally started the process of going back. I'm still not entirely sure when I'll actually have the paperwork and the funds to cross the ocean, but it's in the works. I'm going to need your support again, those of you who have been with me through this journey over the past few years. I've been finishing up my Global University courses since I've been at home and hope to apply for my ministry certification in about a month. I'm super excited! It took me awhile to say "yes" to actually taking this all the way to get my credentials - but now that I've said yes, I'm really glad to be almost there.  I don't know why it always takes me so long to just say "yes" - pray for me. I still have so much growing up to do.

I'm off to watch some movies with my Other Half, Kari! Gotta love girl's night...

Until soon
