A year ago I was laying in a hotel room, unable to sleep, writing my last blog post before moving to Japan. I had absolutely no idea what to expect once we got here, and that unknown was terrifying. It was an emotional night. But through the tears, fears and excitement, I felt in my heart that God was about to take our family on an amazing adventure.
So we left our house
and some amazing friends
and went to the airport
to board an airplane
bound for Osaka.
The kids and I said goodbye to America for the last time
and flew almost 17 hours
to say hello to Japan, our new home for the next 3-5 years.
Reflections from our first year as expats living in Japan will come soon. I promise.
