Springtime is just around the corner meaning more travels for me. This mix will help me bid adieu to my Japanese winter holiday memories.

Who would you steal a kiss in the snow when no one's around? God bless Dr Rob and his family.

I hope Dr Rob and his family are safe from Mother's Nature fury on Friday. The news saddens me as I always find Japan my second home.
