Remember a long time ago when I used to travel with Napkin? How I blogged often about it? The planning, the adventures, the memories, all that mess? One of the big reasons that I decided to quit my job at the theatre was because the schedule simply DID NOT allow for me to ever take … Continue reading

Tokyo Day Twelve! Or: Goodbye, Japan.
Picture this: It’s, like, three in the morning. I can’t sleep. Neither can my not-so-new-hubby. So we ate snacks (I already feel guilty) and we are both killing time in the dead of night. So, here’s a blog post for you. You’re welcome. Originally, I wasn’t even going to write this post as the day … Continue reading
Tokyo Day Ten!
There are a few reasons why I continue to break up each day of our honeymoon into parts. One reason is because I have a hard time remembering what happened when and it’s important (for me, anyway) to look back at things as they happened. The next reason is because I really, really love remembering … Continue reading
Kyoto: Day Three! (Part Two!)
So as I said in the last post, we spent the majority of our day hanging with monkeys. (There’s an excellent gif somewhere in there that I should be including. I just know it.) After we made our way down Mt. Arashiyama and hung out for a while we decided to take a bus to … Continue reading
Kyoto: Day Three! (Part One!)
Or: Japan Day Eight! I had a truly unique experience on our final day in Kyoto. It was on this day that I hiked up a mountain to hang out with monkeys… In blue, high-heeled boots. I have been a big fan of Japanese fashion for a long time. I was definitely more an … Continue reading
Kyoto Day Two! (Or: Tokyo Day Seven?) Part Two!
I mentioned in my last post that our dinner in Kyoto after our tour of the Kyoto Imperial Palace deserved it’s own post. So here goes. I don’t know that I could really do Cafe Proverbs 15:17 any justice. Finding vegetarian food in Japan was not difficult, really… it was at every Freshness Burger. Almost … Continue reading
Kyoto: Day Two! (Or Tokyo: Day Seven? Part One!)
O HAI! (Shoes and tights from yesstyle) Our first full day in Kyoto! Or seventh day in Japan. Errr… how confusing. Anyway! After a great, well needed sleep at Heianbo, Napkin and I decided to get moving and check out Kyoto. The Kyoto Imperial Palace was only a couple of miles away (I can’t stress … Continue reading
Tokyo Day Six! Or: Kyoto Day One!
Hello, my sweet, neglected blog. Life has been crazy: we’ve moved into our first home together. Also, I thought I lost all the pictures from my honeymoon. I am celebrating the fact that I FOUND THEM THANK GOD by blogging! So! The day after our amazing trip to Mt. Fuji started off really slowly. We … Continue reading
Tokyo Day Five!
Before I begin this post I’m gonna go ahead and warn you: It’s full of beautiful pictures. That’s Mt. Fuji. And that’s a very awed-out me staring up at Mt. Fuji. So, I am not very good at waking up early. I am also terrible at getting anywhere on time. I was born with a … Continue reading
Tokyo Day Four!
(Ahem. I forgot about you. I’m sorry. I promise I’ll be better. Happy Holidays!) *** I’ll warn you, day four of Tokyo was relatively uneventful (and THIS is why.) After all the partying and wandering around that we had done our bodies were basically screaming at us to take it easy for a little while. … Continue reading
