Shout Out to Julie!

I just wanted to wish my girlfriend, Julie, the very happiest of birthdays! It was sooooo wonderful to see you and I only wish we could do it more often!
Happy Happy Birthday!

For those of you that don't know, she lives in Australia with her husband and 2 boys. They were just up here on vacation for the holidays and it was the first time I'd seen her in more than 5 years - since George and I got married! Wonderful to see all of you!

Julie and I met after we'd both come back to vancouver from teaching in Japan in different places. We wanted to keep up our Japanese and started taking classes in Vancouver and found that we didn't like the class so much because we weren't learning enough, but that we really liked hanging out together and so started an amazing friendship!

Happy Birthday again!
