.The Holidays are almost Here.

I love, love, love this time of year. Wow, it always makes me smile when I think about Thanksgiving and Christmas time. I love the magic of the Holidays and everyone getting together and enjoying good food and drink and it's such a good time to year to give to the charities and people in need. I am opting out of gift buying this year and instead I am choosing to give the money that I would have spent on gifts (well, some will end up with shoes, but still) to give to these charities/causes instead:

.Japanese Tree.

I was just looking through some older photos the other day and reminiscing about my time in Japan and found this photo of a tree I took when I was in Takayama Japan a couple years ago. I love, love, love this photo and it always makes me smile when I look at it because I remember such an amazing time with friends and family in Japan.
