song*ography | we've only just begun ...

it all started with Pikachu 
that little yellow cutie caught Allyson's eye in her initial Pokemon days 
(Kindergarden/1st Grade) 
and from there ... Japan.

We are less than a month before she leaves to start her job in Tokyo 
and still so much is unknown. 
Like exactly where in Tokyo she'll be placed, 
or apartment status, 
or what she'll need (futon, refrigerator, washer/dryer - all the above);
but it'll work itself out.
It normally does, one way or another. 

 Before the risin' sun, we fly 
So many roads to choose 
We'll start out walkin' and learn to run 
and yes, we've just begun 

We've Only Just Begun | The Carpenters 


Linking up with


  1. Exciting! Oh to be young again with all this adventures to look forward to. Yes - she will be fine.

  2. Such an adventure - She is lucky to get the change to travel! My brother has travelled a lot in Japan, and he is happy for the friendliness of the people and the safety in the cities. Yet as a mom, sending a daughter to the other side of the globe (instead to the neighbour state) must feel like challenging - It is good that we have Skype today - hearing her voice and seeing her face - that she is well and fine - will help mom's heart to be at ease ... many hugs to you, Nicki!

  3. I wish her and you the best of luck on her adventure in Tokyo.

  4. Everything works out in the end! What an adventure she'll be having!

  5. I remember the Carpenters well. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  6. My hubby and I used this song in our wedding. Good luck to your daughter and you for it will be a hard transition for momma.

  7. Your baby is all growed up, mama! Sigh! So are mine. Of course, this doesn't mean that we stop worrying about them . . . or does it? I find that my worries are changing. I don't worry about things like whether or not they are keeping their dentist appointments, or changing the oil in their cars. I do worry about who is influencing them nowadays . . . they are out of my orbit and they think they know everything. I hear that in time, they come back into the fold and seek your advice once more, but I'm a long ways from that happening. We can only hope that we did a good enough job raising them, until that day comes.
