I love Vermont. I’m an ocean girl, and often I’ll pick coastal Maine any day, but in the past few years, I’ve gotten to spend some time in the mountains and have really started to fall for the Green Mountain state.
After spending a few days in Tokyo, we hopped on the Shinkasen and headed south to Hakone. Many people opt to take a day trip from Tokyo to Hakone as you can easily catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji and then head back to the big city. We decided to make a stop on on our way down to Kyoto, and spent the night at the Hyatt Regency Hakone Resort & Spa.
We had been on the wait list at our #1 daycare since last July. Luckily, I wasn’t planning to go back to work full-time and so we weren’t in a rush trying to figure out childcare. We decided to stay on the list since we didn’t know what situation we would find ourselves in when we finally got in. Well, after many months of waiting, we were accepted just this month.
