When was the last time you took a family photo?
I found these old pictures from our family photo sessions we often had after church. One of the reasons I think I take so many pictures now is because my daddy was a big camera person. This was before we even knew what digital was, so he had a Fuji film camera that he would take everywhere with him.
He took tons of photos. Everything from our family trips to just normal evenings at home. But one of the things he liked to do is take family pictures after church. Probably because we tend to look nice when we go to church. And probably also because the church is such a nice backdrop for a photo session!
Nowadays, all us kids live in different prefectures of Japan and we only get to take a family photo once or twice a year. I guess that’s normal. But seeing these pictures made me nostalgic for family photos!
The farm was called Myrtille Moroyama (Japanese website here).
Only grow plants that I can eat.
This is my motto regarding my little garden outside my window. Actually it’s always been my motto when it comes to any type of plant around my apartment. I tend to kill most plants because I’m not at home most of the time and sometimes forget to water it until it’s too late. Or the summer heat kills it while I’m at work.
But when given a motive such as you can eat it!, it triggers something in my brain and I don’t forget to water it as much. This is how my basil, rosemary, shiso, and okura plants are still alive and well outside my window. Good deal, right?
My favorite lately is this bagel with mozzarella, tomato, lettuce, and of course, basil 😀
