4-15 years with a surprise!

wedding anniversary - The cat, you and us

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary! and what’s more impressive, we have been together for 15 years!

A rather cheesy post is in order, but keep with us, because we have a little surprise at the end, we have some clues hidden in our clothes so you may play with us and try guessing or… ok, just scroll down, ha!

Have you seen my companion on top of the ledge? Mr. pigeon wants to share the photo!

Looking back I think we were such kiddos when we met and it looks as a destiny trick that we have grown-up aligning into each other. Although (obviously, duh) our relationship and its goals have changed during all those years and I can guess they will too in the future, I think they have only been transformed into something sweet, familiar… better. During these years, we have not only learnt who we are, our debilities and our strengths but we have also built a solid rock that I like to call our family of three.

I am a little emotional lately because there are issues happening in our family and friends circles, which makes you wonder how our relationship is, if we will ever see it differently or if this will be as it is forever (huge word). I can only say today that I am a lucky girl who has been sharing adventures for more than 15 years with her best friend, isn’t this amazing?

Isn’t it… interesting… that Dani is wearing my enamel pin and his 1 up badge… (Are we bad at giving clues?)

Moiré pattern in my skirt, ohmy! silly head!


And now to the fun part… guess where we have planned to celebrate our anniversary this year!

Or should I better say, Tokyo? Yesss!!! We are flying to Japan again! I know… ok, big deal? it is for us! Japan was our honeymoon which makes it the only place I can see celebrating our 15 years together, and moreover Japan stole our hearts and we have to go back there to get them back, right? *wink*

I wish I was able to plan it better, but we have been in a non-stop frenzy rush at work for months that makes it impossible to dedicate as much time as I would like. But let me assure you that we have my favorite ladies recent Japan adventures (you know how you are my dear pals!) for inspiration in our minds.

I hope I can share more details soon about our plans, but, please let us know if there is something we shouldn’t miss! I am already in third trip wishlist mode (lol!) so surely each recommendation will not fall in deaf ears.


Oh! We have something left! We thought we were going to tell you the news with a BIG confetti cloud around us… but things are not always as you imagine them to be… make sure to watch our video clip, I hope we can steal one smile from you!

    Hello, it’s my first time to comment here ;) I’m from Tokyo, and subscribing your blog and always amazed by your pretty photos.

    Congratulation on your anniversary :D I’m glad to hear that your are coming to Tokyo. My boyfriend is from Germany, and when he was searching where to Travel in Japan, he reached your blog post about Ainokura, Japan and decided to go there. Several month later when I was searching cute website design as a reference to create my own blog, he remembered your post and taught me about it. Since then, I’ve reading your posts :D And what is more, I also went to Ainokura with my sister this summer, as my boyfriend alone went there. So, if you have any questions about your trip, just let me know! I’ll respond at far as I know:D

      Thank you so much Ayako for your comment! It makes me very happy to meet a new (to me!) subscriber :) You are very kind, loved knowing the story behind. Very happy that both you and your boyfriend visited Ainokura :) it’s a special place, isn’t it? I bet it is also gorgeous during summer season. Do you have a favorite restaurant or bakery+tea place (would love drinking a nice matcha latte!) in Tokyo that we shouldn’t miss? :)

    awwwwww super yay!! I cannot wait to see your Japan adventures – weeeeeee and super happy anniversary – 15 years is so amazing you guys and I love all your sentiments you wrote, how amazing to get to change with someone and create a life journey path together :) :) And Damaris guess who is up to season 2 of Gilmore Girls! I think I’ve watched about 10 from that season already, definitely addictive – weeeeeeee!

      Yaaaaay thank you so much friend!!!! <3 <3 we will definitely have your adventures in our hearts when we are visiting Japan, unfortunately we are (very!) short of time to do such a super fun road trip as yours, in fact we have tried to re-do & change reservations of everything just to include some of your recommendations such as the Tama cat station (which super sadly we couldn't, due to the reservation restrictions) but it's ok, I think I like to leave things to visit next, so I have an excuse to keep adding Japan in our travel wishlist. 2nd season already!! You go girl! :) veeery happy that you are enjoying it! hope you are keeping the coffee levels controlled, hahaha!

  10. Fiona ADDS...

    That is totally my attitude with Japan if I miss out on something – just an excuse to go back :) :) Plus any holiday you have in Japan will be amazing!!! The coffee thing is a genuine concern, I had my breaking point last week when I ordered a small coffee and it was a pretty large small and the next few hours I was shaky and hyper and couldn’t focus on anything – lol. So I’m going to try and stay on the straight and narrow the next few weeks and just stick with my (non-caffeinated!) chai :P :P he he he

    Congratulations for such a great milestone, and what a way to celebrate!! So excited for you guys! We are also going to Japan (only in June) and we cannot wait to check out your posts and photos for inspirations. My boyfriend lived in Kobe when he was a little boy, and has not gone back for 20 years… My first time, though… can´t wait! :)

      Thank you so much Claudia!! And how exciting is that you are also going to Japan this next June! :) I’m sure it will be an amazing experience for both of you in each individual way. Big hug!

  12. Louise ADDS...

    Ohhhh! I’m so happy and excited for you guys! It sounds so silly as I don’t really know you and you are actual people yourselves…but you’re like my favourite couple on the internet. And I am so happy for you how you guys are so happy and good together.
    And I’m really, really excited for you guys to head back to Japan! You must be over the moon! I’m really looking forward to you guys’ pretty pictures and adventures and I’m sure you have the bestest trip!
    – and please don’t stop making cute vimeo videos, because this was really fun.

      Not silly at all!! I would say completely the opposite: your comment is the sweetest thing ever! thank you so much Louise from the bottom of our hearts <3 <3 I also feel super connected with you! Oh! and thanks about the videos, this surely motivates us to keep making them.

    Hello! My second comment here. (I didn’t know how to reply back to your comment, oops! ) Thanks for your kind reply!

    I wrote about Match cafe before, here is the link:
    First and second are cafes are nice choices to go, especially the second one ;) Another my favorite matcha cafe is called さくらCafe (Sakura Cafe) , where you can have “skytree-size” matcha parfait! Here is the Address: Tokyo Sumida ward, Narihira 1-17-5

    When my friends visit Tokyo, I always bring them to these restaurants;

    今半 (Imahan) : http://www.imahan.com/
    つるとんたん (Tsurutontan): http://www.tsurutontan.co.jp/
    すしざんまい (Sushizanmai): http://www.kiyomura.co.jp/

    You can have popular (and could be typical) Japanese food there. More questions will be warm welcome! :D

      Oh! How super nice Ayako! Thank you so much! <3 I'm adding all of them in our map. I'll let you know if we are able to try them! How exciting it all seems, I loved checking all the websites and anticipating the food.
