...and 2009 has begun!

This weekend was very busy as it was filled with some new adventures and some unexpected turns. Abe and I went to Tokyo for a big tournament that we have been looking forward to for quite some time. Unfortunately, he was hit with food poisoning and had to leave the game before it was even finished...ugh. However, we kicked that virus out of his body as quickly as it hit him and 24 hours later, he was sweating out the remnants of it and played in the next game. More power to athletes who can do that...I would have been in bed for days!

I also have to take a moment to give props to the internet...I don't think my Japan experience could be the same without it. Among its countless other benefits, I probably wouldn't have started digging into photography the way I have if I didn't have wireless access at my small apartment. And I couldn't have contacted the new friends I got to meet. Fun! I've already started working on accomplishing my first 3 goals for the year...thank you internet!

I have pictures to blog and randomness to share later, but I couldn't go to sleep without posting a picture of another bundle of cuteness I had the pleasure of sitting next to at a basketball game...her eyes and that smile could melt anyone's heart! :) I'll post more later...

Good to hear Abe recovered quickly. Food poisoning sucks!
Such a cute picture, that's Hannah right?!

Yes, that's Hannah. Luckily, she was all smiles for me. Another cutie, eh?
