It has been a long time since my greeting to you last April. It is already Fall now, and we can see a lot of pretty red leaves around here.
We got married at the end of April, and we spent Golden Week planning our wedding in Japan. We were also getting ready to move to the U.S. at the same time, which made us really busy― but we got through it and had our wedding at the beginning of June. We went on our honeymoon in mid-June and then moved to the U.S. together to start our new life.
We finally got settled in August. Since my wife didn’t have a driver’s license in Japan, she had to get a beginner’s permit here. Even though she got a beginner’s permit, she won’t be able to get a regular license for six months. That means she will have to wait until February to drive by herself, which makes our life a little inconvenient.
Right now, my wife is in Japan visiting her family. Since she was planning this trip for a long time, I believe she is having a relaxing time. She is returning next week, but she will still have to wait to drive by herself a little bit until February.
I've attached three pictures of us. The first is a picture from our wedding. We had our families and a few friends, but we were happy to be able to have a wedding. The second picture was taken on our honeymoon. Since my wife really wanted to wear a wedding dress, we signed up for a photo plan to have our pictures taken at a church in Hawaii. The third picture was taken at the top of the mountain in a state park nearby. We both like to hike in the mountains, and that day we hiked for about four hours to make it to the mountaintop.
As I already mentioned, my wife is in Japan now, so I’ve been spending time alone, which haven't experienced for several months. It is so boring. (laugh) I remember that I started looking for a wife when I thought that spending time alone was not fun anymore.
Since July, my life with her has been filled with laughter. Sometimes I get scolded by her, but most of the time I apologize and she forgives me. (laugh) It hasn’t been even six months since we got married, and only nine months since I met her for the first time. We have always supported each other, and I want to continue to do so and do our best here in the U.S.
I still don’t know when, but I would like to visit San Francisco to see you sometime in 2018. It is going to get colder from now on. Please take care of yourself.
