I can hardly believe we are about to greet the beginning of a new year once again.  This past year has been full of so much—change, excitement, joy, surprise, and sadness—that it’s hard to believe so little time has passed.  I always enjoy reflecting on what the past year has brought our family, and this [...]

The Fuji family is in serious packing mode.  On Saturday morning our moving truck will arrive and we’ll be saying goodbye to the house we have loved so much for the past 5 years.  It makes my head hurt to think about how much still needs to be done!  I recently whipped up a new [...]

Roll out the red carpet and put on somethin’ fancy because we’re celebrating today on LFM!  Not only are The Oscars this weekend, but I’ve got my own reasons for celebration.  Things have been a bit quiet around here because I’ve been trying to move my site to a new host.  That didn’t go as [...]

Indulge in the flavors of the season with a blood orange tonic!  As a non-alcohol drinker, the typical options when I’m at a restaurant or an event can get a bit boring—soda, juice, sparkling water . . . .  Am I alone in feeling like it would be nice to have a few more options [...]
