gift from japan

when he was just a little boy, my husband’s family hosted an exchange student from japan. she became close friends with them, especially his older sister and they’ve visited over the years.

recently, i had the good fortune to meet her for the first time. she was very lovely and kind.

she brought karl a pair of pajamas! she says the pattern is called “daruma” and means good fortune or victory.


{karl also received a xylophone from nicaragua, but i’ll tell you about that soon!}
