Checks

I've been working on my 30 by 30 list today! As I write this, I'm on a bus en route to Narita airport to check off country number 2 of 3 of #13: visit at least 3 new countries. I'm headed to Australia for the next 11 days where I'll get to check off #17: snorkel the great barrier reef. I feel so incredibly blessed to have these opportunities.

Another blessing in my life is the wonderful Japanese ladies I have met while living here in Japan. This morning Sachiko invited me and 9 of her Japanese friends into her home to teach me how to make my favorite japanese treat, inarizushi (sushi rice wrapped in a sweet piece of tofu).








While we were there the ladies also taught me how to make sushi rolls! (2 checks for #11 on my list, learn to make 5 traditional Japanese dishes, including sushi)

























It was a great morning of fellowship filled with lots of laughter and even more delicious food

























I am incredibly grateful to her for opening her home to me and allowing me to create memories I will cherish my entire life! THANK YOU SACHIKO (and everyone who came out this morning)!

Oh, I'm so jealous! Have fun :) Hubby and I went to NZ with the intention of scuba diving and never got to. We definitely want to head back over to that part of the world to try again.
