2015: How Did We Get Here?

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

New Year’s Day came and went without much acknowledgement from me, but now we’re about a week in and it’s finally set in. 2015 is here.

2014 was a difficult year. I lost both Grandma Kaneshiro and Grandma Yoneda within a couple of months from each other.  Two of my closest friends each lost a parent. We had to put down our family dog, Kaile (random tidbit: my mom first named her Chibi).

I refuse, however, to let this past year be defined only by its losses. Instead, I’d like to take a moment to say thank you to my Grandmas for everything. I was fortunate to love them and be loved by them.
