Back from Japan
Welcome New Subscribers! 
Those of you that have been following for awhile know that my family and I were going to Tokyo, Japan.  Well, we are back. We returned home safely on Tuesday afternoon. The trip was amazing! Tokyo is a modern vibrant city, yet culture and religion are also important. The importance of nature and solitude is also evident.  
I will be writing about the trip in segments.  The first installment, Enjoying Japanese Cuisine, is linked below.

And...don't forget  Sunday is Mother's Day.  As I mentioned last week, my first trip abroad was with my mother, who turns 79 today - wonderful memories. Happy Mother's Day and Happy Birthday, Mom!  
Please share the newsletter with your family 
and friends and enjoy the posts this week!
