Thanks so much for asking. It's really bittersweet. We're sad to leave Japan because we really do enjoy living here, but also glad to go back to Georgia. Next year, my oldest daughter will start high school and the younger, middle school, so it's a good time to go back. Peachtree City is a great place to live and we have so many friends there. It was a surprise for us that this opportunity for my husband came up and so quickly, but luckily, we're flexible! Biscuit will probably be the saddest. He loves the country life here in Japan. No more rice fields to investigate. :)

The show aired as a rerun in February. I'm not sure when it'll be on again! It'll be funny for us to watch it on American tv. We had to see it online since no HGTV here!(less)
