Tokyo: a metropolis of 13.6 million people. There are endless nexuses that remind you of the city’s ceaseless energy. Striking you like a simmering flat iron, they make you feel full-blooded and alive. Try Shinjuku station during rush hour on a Monday and you’ll know exactly what I mean. Yet, there are also oases around the corner — unaffected, gentle, unassuming. When you slip into one, the throbbing halts, keeping you alive.
A year ago today we packed up the last of our 700 sq ft apartment and moved into our first home. I remember it feeling so weird being in our new home because we didn’t really know the neighborhood and we hadn’t unpacked much. Now a year later our home feels like a home and it’s weird to think we’ve only been here a year. This last year has been one of the best years of our marriage and I love being able to build memories and do diy home improvements together. Here’s to another year and many more projects to go @brycemasek. I love you! 💕

May all beings attain happiness.
May all beings be free from suffering.
May all beings never be separated from joy.
May all beings abide in equanimity. 🌸
Feeling so much joy and gratitude at the moment. Partly due to this spectacular view (and perhaps that Joy is literally my middle name...), but also largely due to finding a copy of The Book of Joy - a record of discussions over a week period between the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu - at my hostel. Thank you whoever you are that left it for others to enjoy and Thank you Universe for allowing me to find it. 💟
Just wrapped up an incredible long weekend celebrating 29 years of friendship with some amazing UW ladies. And the pool wasn’t bad either. 😘 💃 Thank you @swanstad for sharing your beautiful island retreat with us! #sanjuanislands#sanjuans#pnw#mytinyatlas
