By now, you've read the word Japan twice. I am a military brat, born in Japan to a US Navy sailor and his Japanese girlfriend (they were married a day before I was born, but to their benefit I was 6 weeks early...). Gary followed this pattern to a T about 6 months after I did (yes, I am the older woman), and together we have a beautiful second-generation half-Japanese baby boy we named Daniel. Gary spent the majority of his life in Japan, whereas I grew up in California and spent a few of my teenage years in Japan. Gary and I spent a year together in Junior High and reconnected in April of 2010 on Facebook. In October 2010, we met for the first time since we were 13 and spent 2 amazing weeks together. In February 2011, I spent 2 equally amazing weeks in Japan where he was living and flew home with the most amazing souvenir - a bun in the oven!
And now, here we are. We married one another on May 16, 2012 in a small ceremony. We are so excited about our adventure into parenthood together and I'm excited to share our story with you. Thanks for reading!
