I can’t believe 2010 is over, and it’s officially 2011. I’ve been super busy, mostly with holiday stuff, of course.
Christmas is not a big deal in Japan, but Hero Material and I celebrated on Christmas Eve at Mario’s Bistro. Very yummy Italian dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant was a bit smokey from a lot of smokers, and we couldn’t linger as much as we’d like because the cigarette stench gives me a major headache (which then makes me nauseous, which is not a good thing, especially for a pregnant woman!).
Then I tried to stay warm. I know it snowed a lot in America, and it was the same in Japan. Thankfully we didn’t get any snow in our city, but it was freezing. Burrr…..
New Year’s was lovely with home-cooked meal and so on. On the fourth, Hero Material and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. It was really romantic. I’ll post some pictures soon, I promise!
The biggest goal for me this year is to stay healthy. This is more important than before since I’m pregnant. And the second biggest goal is figuring out how to do what I need to do (spending time with Hero Material and balancing work and writing) with the new responsibility called motherhood.
I hope everyone had wonderful holidays. Here’s to another fantastic year.
