I haven't been to Japan during Sakura season (Cherry Blossoms). Huhu. How sad (>_<) as much as I would love to... March is always one hectic month for me as I have to do my mommy duties... It's my son's (Atreyu) birthday at the end of the month of March and March is usually the busiest in his school as the school ends on March. I cannot possibly hop in to the next flight to Japan at that time. I would be such a bad mother. Huhu. But I always long for the Sakura season and always look forward to seeing the the beautiful pastel blooms everywhere. It's something with incomparable beauty. But I haven't seen it at sight yet so... buhu. (>_<) But it's okay... Someday I hope Atreyu and I can finally move to Japan (with Kareshi) all in God's time... Okay.... I'm not gonna sulk, don't worry! I actually just wanna blog about how I cherished the Cherry Blossoms Sakura Season miles away...
First, I opened a pack of Sakura Matcha KitKat and had a "Sakura KitKat Break" with Atreyu... Sakura Matcha (Sakura Green Tea) flavor is one of our favorites because it has a mild sweetness that we enjoy... It just seems it made us feel closer to Japan opening a sweet KitKat chocolate... I love decorating my photos (obviously) especially with those lovely pink Sakura flowers... It just makes everything prettier~
|March 24, 2013 ~ (From my IG) In the spirit of #spring and #sakura #cherryblossoms I'm sharing my fave #sakuramatcha #kitkat with Atreyu on a Sunday Morning! Someday we will enjoy them at sight too! For now, some sweets will do!|
Sakura Season is simply lovely... Even miles away, I'm so lucky I get some beautiful Sakura pieces of my own. Kaila-chan is such a sweet little sister she sent me some sakura loving spring gifts?! I got confused really... Is it my birthday?! Haha! This definitely made me smile and felt the Cherry Blossoms embrace me!
|April 5, 2013 ~ OMG. This is the prettiest Sakura gifts ever!! I'm floored!|
My favorite part of this lovely gifts is the pretty Sakura Letter Kaila-chan wrote to me... I'm so lucky to have such a sweet little sister who always shares her love and blessings to everyone... That's why she's even blessed even 10x's! From the first we met her at a Japan Street Fashion Contest few years ago, she's still the same sister we were so glad to have met... (Senti mode!?) I kept thanking her the nice gifts she sent me! Oh dear she really do know me well! From thos cutie Ribbon Stick-ons and the THIS-IS-SO-ME-Cat's-Eye-Shades?! Whaaa! It's just love! I've been smiling like a 5-year-old just staring at them haha!
|✿ The Cutest Letter from Kaila-chan ✿|
|✿ I've got a mountain full of Sakuras awwwww... Isn't that the loveliest?! ✿|
Kareshi also got me a very nice Sakura Card together with the White Day Gifts he got me... He's the sweetest ever! How I wish someday we can get to see the Sakura together (with Atreyu, too!) But it's just a sweet substitute to send me my own Sakura even miles away... I can celebrate too!
|❤ Kareshi got me a pretty Sakura White Day Card I enjoy reading it~❤|
I love it when Kareshi and I share each other's tradition and make our own traditions too! I love how he introduces me to Japanese traditions I'm learning a lot from him everyday... and I hope he does too! Haha!
|Kareshi's lovely Sakura White Day Card! He got me a Sakura flower pot~❤ It's sooo sweet! ❤ I love reading his little notes and looking at this strokes and handwriting (haha smittened for nothing)|
Not only did I get one Sakura Card, I got two... Actually, I got a mountain full of Sakura and a cute flower pot of Sakura even!
|✿ Ahhhh... I have a full load of Sakura for me to see... ✿|
But among my Hanami Little Shindig here across the miles... There is one sight of Cherry Blossoms that was unforgettable and personal for me. It's not some grandiose reign of pink petals and trala-la-la's... It's not even in Tokyo or some best spot for Hanami... It's just a serene photo sent by Kareshi from Okayama... When he came to visit his Obaa-chan's Haka. It's one of my favorite sights I've seen of Sakura... Seeing this made me feel I'm there.
|March 31, 2013 ~ (Okayama, Japan) Kareshi sent me this precious sight of Sakura. It felt deep for me. This is one time I wish I can physically support him and be there to visit his Obaa-chan. Seeing this photo made me feel I'm also there.|
I may have not seen Sakuras just yet, but for sure Cherry Blossoms has a special place in my heart. Someday soon, I hope I can see you... I'll be in this photo, too. For now, I'm very happy to share "My own Sakura" with y'all. ✿❤
