(Updated 10/2/14: Coming Up on 5,000 Views) – now 10,000!

So when I started my blog back in July, I celebrated my 1,000 view milestone by giving away a small souvenir from Japan.

I am now approaching my 5,000th past the 10,000th view milestone.  Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog!  A special thank you to those of you who have been coming back!  And an extra special thank you to those of you who commented!  I love reading your comments and associating a “voice” with some of the people out there who are following my story.

So, as I did with my 1,000th view, I will be giving away a small prize to the first person to comment on any of my posts.  Since I am not in Japan any more, this time I will be giving away a small souvenir from New York City.

Thank you!


P.S. It has been years since I’ve posted anything new this blog. And I am utterly grateful/surprised/inspired that I have picked up a few more readers. I do want to start writing again, and sharing more of my story — the twists, falls, and highs. I now have four children, the youngest just turned 2, which is one of the reasons why I have not had the time to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard rather…). Thank you all again!!

    • Yes… I have been really terrible at keeping up with my writing (not just the blog)…
      All are well thanks! It has now been a years since we have returned to the U.S. and life is so different from what it used to be… It tooks some time to adjust, but I will try to squeeze in more time to write…

      • Hi Lee – I’m someone new to your blog but I just spent 2 hours reading the entire thing. And what’s interesting is I think I know your brother. Regardless, I just want to say what an inspiration your love life has been – and your dedication to it. Many of us are just comfortable with someone that fits into our life, our lifestyle, our family’s wishes……but being an Asian girl myself, I can understand how much pain you went through. Nevertheless I am very happy that you fought through all this and have a beautiful family now. Please continue writing and I would love to hear more about your advice in this grand journey called love….

        • Thank you, SC. I haven’t written a new post in a long time because I am so busy. Since my last post I’ve actually had another baby – and with 4 children, a demanding career, and trying to find time to dote on my husband in between, my writing was one of the sacrifices I had to make… hopefully only temporarily…

          That’s funny that you know my brother! What a small world…

          • 4 children now! wow congrats, i’m glad that things worked out for you in the end! I think you should write a book for sure on your story……

  1. I am so excited to find your site /blog! Although I am new to your site I already know I will be a regular. I am a sucker for a love story and will begin yours right now…………

    • Thank you so much, Tami!! I am a bit behind on my posts, but hope to catch up soon. In the mean time enjoy my past posts. And, BTW… Congratulations!! You are my winner!!! Send me an email with your address and look for you prize on the mail!

  2. 5000! Hooray for you! Still here, still reading and still looking forward to your unfolding story. Let us know how you and the new baby-to-be is doing – okay? Debbie
