On the Upside…

The house is clean, the decorations are up, the food is ready, and I’m about to go wash up and put on my hanbok.

But the emails and text messages have been arriving since last night.

“Our neighborhood has been evacuated…we’re so sorry but we won’t be able to make it to the party.”

“They’re saying all bridges, tunnels, and public transportation will be shut down. We may not be able to come.”

“Is the party still on?”

I hope that even if no one but immediate family members can make it, we can still have a sweet and memorable dol for Aerin.

On the upside, we are sooo glad right now that the banquet hall didn’t work out. We could have been out hundreds, if not thousands of dollars!

I hope everyone stays safe with Sandy on the way!

    Hope your family is doing ok amidst all the hurricane drama over there. And I guess all things worked out for good in the end. No matter what, hope you all enjoy a wonderful and meaningful celebration with Aerin’s 1st.
