hi everyone!

i am leaving chicago in a few weeks to go back to japan.
my father is not doing well and i need to be there.
things has been crazy and I honestly don't know what to do!

PataPri will be close for a while, I'm hoping to re-open as soon as possible but i dont know when it will be.
im having a big sale at my etsy shop, so take a look.

niko will be fine with my bf while im gone. he spoiled her little too much though.

i will write this blog while im gone from japan.

anyway i just want to let you know what's going on.
