Is what I would have been saying last week for memorial day weekend if it weren't for the surprise attack brought on us by our car. It started having minor troubles on Friday and since our mechanic isn't open on the weekends, we decided not to risk our chances and stayed home instead. Which ended up being a good thing since the engine check light went on a few days later. Probably wouldn't have made the drive back up from Portland to be honest. But it all ended up begin a good thing because we had planned on using a certain dollar amount for our trip, but since it got canceled, we ended up doing a bunch of other fun things back home. And it cost us way less! So yay for that! I am also just assuming that our car broke down on us for a reason. And that reason is that if we had actually gone through with our trip, we never would have found our new favorite Korean restaurant which happens to be quite close to our home. And that thought just saddens me deeply. Because we are foodies. And we love our food. So all in all, I believe a 'double yay!' is in order.
Optimism friends. It's a beautiful thing.
