This is a picture that my husband took two years ago when Sidra and I were about to go to IKEA, a week after we arrived in Tokyo. We needed to buy some furniture because our apartment was a bit empty after my husband got rid of his ‘single’ furniture. You know, single couch, single bed, small TV, small bookshelves, etc.
That was one of those moments where everything was reset to zero and started over. The apartment was empty and we were about to fill it with our stuff. My husband left his single life and started something new. I gave all my stuff away and flew to Tokyo with only two luggages to carry. Sidra left his Indonesian school and had to go to a Japanese kindergarten where everybody spoke in strange language. He also got himself a new father. It was the beginning of our life here. We were all a bit afraid, but also very excited. Maybe my smile wasn’t big enough in the picture, but in my heart I smiled wider.
Actually I got tagged by this coolest woman, Pip from Meet Me at Mike’s for this cute game, and that was the reason I posted this picture. I was a bit busy this week and missed my blog, so thank you, Pip, for giving me a reason to post something!
The Tag game goes as follows:
Go to the 8th folder in which you store your photos
Select the 8th photo
Post it to your blog and tell the story behind it.
After following the above instructions, you are ‘supposed’ to tag 8 other bloggers.
Now I would tag these 8 lovely bloggers to play along, but don’t feel obliged to do the same if you’re busy!
