JUST BE YOURSELF and KEEP GROWING THE WAY YOU THINK IT’S BEST!!! and You will have these unique but beautiful pair of legs like this carrot has!!! 
I had been super lazy about myself… and This message is not for anyone else but for myself…

P.S. the picture was taken during our honeymoon in Okinawa “KATATSUMURI on Honeymoon” 

So… October 20th was our 5th year anniversary since we decided to get in this relationship… It’s been the most exciting and adventurous 5 years with my husband now… 

We got married in Japan on March 30th 2013… and got another party in Catskills NY on August 10th… and on 5th year anniversary, we decided to go browsing our first house… After narrowing down into 4 houses after looking so many online… we took that Sunday afternoon to the town next to Woodstock… and fell in love with one house…

There are few laughable down sides… like tiny tiny spiral stair case… head banging wall above the dryer…  but its all about the main room… where we spend the majority of our time…. Kitchen and LivingRoom… and Location was just too perfect! The process was super painful for my husband and father in-law… It’s all done and its all ours now!!!

I still cant believe this is happening… but our parents are super excited for us… They know the exact feeling of this “owing the first house” themselves… 33 years ago… We still have lots to do to make this house the way we want… 

We are super close to Red Onion, the Smokehouse of the Catskills, and all the waterfalls that we fell in love with… Well… our parents expectation for the next step is getting bigger and bigger now…♥

Foggy day makes everything so mysterious and so beautiful… It was a foggy all day long yesterday in NYC… I was walking in SoHo after work… There were two men taking photos towards me and waiting for me to pass… I had to look back to see what made them so serious about taking photos… There it is… The freedom tower is dressing up in the fog… Jet clouds are making even more dramatic with sunset side light… I just whispered “thank you” to these two men who gave me a chance to discover this beautiful scene…
Hope everyone enjoyed the full moon last night…

Happy New Year~~~~
It’s been quite some time sine I post something here last time…
2013 was such an awesome year… We got married twice in Osaka, Japan and Catskills, New York… Happiness around Family and Friends are the best kind… Especially when good food are served!!!
We got together with my sister and her husband for the new years eve… got some ramen noodles to make up for Toshi-Koshi-Soba (Japanese tradition to eat buckwheat noodle at the end of the year)… and went to a home party where our friend took us…
Another traditional food for new year is Osechi-Ryori which I never even tried to prepare in my life… After seeing a lot of Facebook posts that my Japanese friends made… I made a promise to myself to try for the next year… For this year… we luckly had my sister inviting us for quiche brunch… 
Keeping tradition will be the key for 2014 since we are expecting 2014 to be the life upgrading year… moving into the new house… buying a new car… and adapting a dog… Wishing you all the best luck for the new year!!!

9-Year-Old Tells McDonald’s CEO That She’s Fed Up With His Tricks

Listen to the next generation for their future… How dare you feed your products to your own child… Either you are so in love with your company and blind on the truth… Or you pretend not knowing the truth and ignore your loved one’s health… 

I just can’t get over these human beings exist… All for what? Money? Status? Listen to John Lennon… He knew the true trick and we all know that’s so true…

All You Need is Love… Let’s think about this one more time… The new moon is the good day to reconstruct your desire… if you miss my post about "the power of the new moon", it would make more sense what Im talking about…

String Theory

Here you can see the body of work- String Theory- the portraits by my husband… He never forget to mention about me… Super special relationship that we created last 5 years… and Im so honor to be his wife…

the power of the moon…

I finally got myself into the astrology…

It all started in one afternoon with my friend at the Japanese book store… where I found the recipe book for the macrobiotic diet… The book was describing how the energy changes on the earth along the moon phase, and how human body is happier when it balanced with the same energy from the specific food… 

I will try to make it easy to understand by dividing into 4 phases… 28 days cycle… starting the new moon that is coming on Oct 4th. 

  1. day 1-7: the new moon to the half moon (waxing)
  2. day 8-14: the half moon to the full moon
  3. day 15-21: the full moon to the half moon (waning)
  4. day 22-28: the half moon to the new moon

Be prepared for this coming new moon… New moon is the best day to start new things… Like new diet, new hobby… Your choice…

4. Day 22-28     (SEP 26- Oct 3)

The energy on the earth is strongest on the new moon with firming up… To balance your body with theses surrounding energy… The vegetables grow in the winter time… Like carrots, radish, cabbages… Dried fruits and vegetables are good for this last quarter of the moon phase… 

1. Day 1-7     (OCT 4- 11)

On the new moon, listen to your heart and body… The meditation will lead you to the clear mind and help you restructure your desire and plan… 

Once the new moon passes… The energy will be more relaxed and loosened up… Then you need to focus on taking some spring vegetables that grow tall above the ground… Sprouts are the best… Beans are great… Celery and green onions are easy to cook with anything… Use acidity like lemon to cook, short cooking time is preferred like steaming… Try to avoid fried, salty food… Alcohols is not ideal for this period…

I don’t stress my self out try eating perfect everyday.. but I try to satisfy myself physically and mentally by trying whenever I can… Meaning… I put the effort to be healthy… and think ahead to make that happen…

My friend Lori gave me some homemade Pepper Jelly that is perfect with some eggs… One morning in the summer… I got green beans, scallions and basil from our garden… and added left over green pepper from the fridge… made some omelet in the cast iron…

My body was happy to convert these healthy breakfast into the energy for my brain… and I truly believe that should be the way to stat your day… Not just your favorite coffee and cigarette… (they were my breakfast for a while when I was in school….) not anymore… Still love a cup of coffee in the morning though…

Today is our 6 Months Wedding Anniversary…

Here we are… 19 months after he proposed me on top of Mt.Fuji… We had the most beautiful day with our friends and family…

We planned the wedding in Osaka targeting for the cherry blossom season… I was try not to think if we gonna have perfect pink trees… but one thing I didn’t want was “HaZakura” which is the sakura tree with new born green leaves after the cherry blossom is all gone…. So I set the wedding date two weeks earlier than usual Sakura Week…. March 30th…

The place took in the french restaurant by the Osaka castle called “the River Suite Osaka” where Sakura trees line up across the river… March 12th… I nervously arrived at the Osaka airport by myself to finalize everything… like every bride says, it was a lot of works… Making my own table numbers, menues in two different languages, welcome board, pamphlets to explain what all Jewish symbols mean, you name it… 

As my fiance arrived with his parents, we had a great news that we might have some perfect cherry blossom… all I ask is the non-rainy day… and we had them all!!! The day was warm sunny perfect spring day with Sakura trees dressed in the perfect pink!!!

Two days before the wedding… I and my mother made a trip to the restaurant to bring in all the items… I was so nervous that we might forgot something… something important… oh MY WEDDING DRESSS… and we didn’t even know his suite pants fell in the hallway at my parents house by accident until our wedding planner called us at the night… So the day before the wedding… here I am on the train to the restaurant with my dress and his pants in my hands… 

The ceremony started 15 mins late… and my stomach was just not present at all… During the reception, I looked at my husband’s face and told him that I was in pain from all the craziness… and laughed a loud after finding that he was the same.. Remembering that the pain relieved a little bit since… Seeing my grandmothers dancing on the floor with my beloved husband… dancing talk with my father… best friend from the high school crying whole time… my sister running taking photos for us… and my own mother having the biggest smile across her face…  It was just amazing day with our favorite people!!!

we had second wedding at the house in Catskill NY for all my new family members and friends… Friends from Charleston, SC. all over the NYC, family members from NJ, PA, and Florida… It was really nice having my parents from Japan at our country home and show them the life we have in the nature and the big city… 

a lot happened these 6 month… our 2 other couples got married…  we are just so happy to be able to share all the experience and feelings everyday… and seeing each other growing every day… learning each other and loving each other… Hopefully the third member of the family will join us soon… ;)
