I can admit that I am not ready for the cold weather. Recently, I have been sleeping in a cocoon of blankets during the nighttime. Using the heater here in Japan is very expensive, so you have to be creative and think about other ways to keep yourself creatively.

But the cold weather hasn’t stopped the positive vibes flowing in the mornings. Excellent breakfast with a homemade latte makes the mornings even brighter. But, what makes it genuinely fantastic is this one unknown song from a well-known singer.
