This time of the year always makes me nostalgic, autumn is when I left my life in Montreal and moved to Japan. It's also when I got married, and now it will be when bébé arrives- another big life change. I've been loving being pregnant, something I did not expect at all. I'm trying to keep a balance between working hard yet having lots of time to rest, it's not always easy but at this point I'm learning to be kinder to myself and realizing I have some limitations.
I don't know just how ready I feel about anything that's coming up, but like every other situation in my life, I tend to just go with it. I feel similar to how I did when I first moved to Japan, jumping into the unknown, equal parts terrified and excited. So, if this experience is anything like Japan, I think it will be extremely rewarding and filled with wonderful surprises.
These days I'm looking forward to cooking some nabe (Japanese hot pot dish), baking again, spending more time outdoors since it's so comfortable, catching up on reading books, sleeping sleeping sleeping (despite the recurring insomnia) and chilling out with that growing bébé making flips in my stomach.
