With that said, there should be warnings about the near pornographic food pictures ahead.

Happy New Year!

Thank you to all of our followers for their continued support through the past year. We created this blog because we're great supporters of the kawaii-sugoi life that we feel EVERYBODY should be able to experience. It's a way of life more than anything else. If we've helped to make any one of you at any one moment of any one day feel a little happier, a little more kawaii, a little more confident and creative, then this has been a worthwhile journey for us all. Keep an eye out for us in the coming year—one that promises tons more surprises and adventures!
