Jason Truesdell : Pursuing My Passions

A life in flux. Soon to be immigrant to Japan. Recently migrated this blog from another platform after many years of neglect (about March 6, 2017). Sorry for the styling and functionality potholes; I am working on cleaning things up and making it usable again.

Hearty Congratulations to the lovely bride and groom!

Wish you all the joy and happiness, every way, all your life long through. Congratulations Jason!


re: Reunion and union

Congratulations. I too have a similar story and given the way things were, it did take a while before I could join my husband.

The wait is part of life and you'll enjoy being together so much more when you are able to start living together.

Wishing Hiromi and you the very best that life has to offer.

Dear Jason and Hiromi,

Congratulations and may you have many years of blessed union. May you grow old together, never away from each other's side and bound by love. I count myself lucky to have met both of you in person. Again, congratulations!

Jason & Hiromi,

To many more years of food, travel, and togetherness. I really enjoyed reading this post.

I am a true romantic at heart and my husband/I had a long distance relationship too and I went down my memory lane while reading about yours! Congrats and all the best for your upcoming japan wedding.

Wow! Thanks, everyone, for wishing us well, and sharing your own stories.

I've continued to be overwhelmed with things at work and elsewhere since that date, but I'll be "alive" again soon.

No, Hiromi hasn't given birth (and, by the way, neither have I). But we're now on the cusp of 9 months
