Wondering where in the world we will be located? We finally found a map that really shows the location well!

decision time

If you know Brandon and Jewell, you know we wear our hearts on our sleeve. If you know Jewell you know she would pick up and move or travel on the drop of a dime. If you know Brandon, you know he's always wanted to.

So here we are, married for almost a year, happy, healthy, degrees in our hands, and a plan in our head.

We're moving to Japan!!!

Sasebo, Japan that is.

We are scheduled to be in this new place for 2 years. Who knows, maybe longer? Brandon has taken a job with a franchise company that has a knack for developing American restaurants abroad. He will be the General Manager of the new Chili's Bar & Grill on the Sasebo Naval Base. We see this as an exciting way to learn the in's and outs of restaurant development, ultimately leading to our future dream of owning our own restaurant.

We wanted to start this blog to keep our families and friends in tune with our new life in Japan. The expat life will be hard, but the adventures huge.

Until next time. . .
