children at the beach a blessing in life

Blessings By The Week

Do we ever just stop and take a moment to think about how truly blessed we are? That weekend we just spent at a gorgeous beach in Okinawa, Japan in January, basking in the warm sun for very little money since it was a military resort. I remembered that people pay good money to vacation […]

Celebrating Kodomo no Hi in Okinawa, Japan

Our little family is LOVING Okinawa, Japan. We love living the island lifestyle, and we also really love how kid-friendly and kid-focused the Japanese are.
