Happy Anniversary, married 8 years!

Wedding in Japan

Hard to believe I have been married for 8 years. When we were featured on the show Four Weddings, we had already been married for a year. First we got married at City Hall in NYC and then the next year we decided to have a small eco friendly wedding. A year after that we had another ceremony in Japan.

Doing the reality show was a fun time for me. I learned a lot about my strengths as a personality. You can watch me on Season 2, Episode 1. We are still one of the most popular shows worldwide. When a friend mentioned that she had seen us on TV in Spain I was floored!

The years are flying by. So many changes and so many challenges.

“We are moving to Japan.”

“Honey, that is not detergent.”

“How much debt do you have?”

” I think you should be a stay at home mom.”

“What do you think about life in Cambodia?”

Many things come your way when you are a couple. Then you become a family and there are even more decisions to make. We now have three children.

We don’t really celebrate our anniversary because we have a few to celebrate, but also, we try to celebrate a good life together just by being good to each other. I hope you are having a great week.

Be Well,

Tara Kamiya
