Lately I've...

seen some interesting advertising...(Waseda station)

had an amazingly fun dinner with old and new friends

been hanging out with my gal, Mary!!

been enjoying the beautiful weather... if you look closely, you can see Mt. Fuji. I was so excited when I saw her, but the pictures weren't so great.

It's very faint, snow capped, on the right side...

had an amazing meal with Mikkun and his parents! It was a great time!

I'm still really loving FALL!! For all of you who have talked to me recently you know I am in love with fall. I am having such an amazing time in Japan and just love every minute. Mikkun's mother gave me some chestnuts because this time of year chestnuts are very popular to eat. You peel them, cut them and then cook them in your rice. Oishi desuyo!

Japan is starting to feel more like home and my heart is being softened to life here. What an answer to prayer. I keep forgetting to get pictures of the leaves and the flowers to put on my blog because it's so beautiful here but I have a feeling that when Mary and I got to Nagano to see Norio, we will some of the most beautiful sights we've yet to see. I am excited to head into the countryside... fall makes me miss apple orchards with the family, walks in the woods, and football games.

Yet, my heart is being satisfied in different but more amazing ways this year. Thank you Jesus!

I miss you, Bean! I just keep thinking "March" (the month, not the command)!

Can't wait.

The command isn't so bad for all of us either..."march"ing for Jesus is our job wherever we are. I need to be a better soldier. Shall we sing "The Lord's Army" together now? You guys loved that song! It's a good reminder. :)Thanks for the pictures and fall blog, Joanna. Go Hawks! Go Bears! I love you! XOXOXO

Um, awesome! I'm so glad you had a good time with Mikkun's parents - that's definately exciting. How did the language go? Were you able to communicate?

and what's in March? Curiosity has gotten the best of me...

JO! Fall is the BEST. i'm glad we share that passion. :)

Are we to really believe that you've had nothing to blog about since the 8th!?

Your public demands your attention!
