When Josh and I were dating, we talked about a lot of important, life shaping things. For instance, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the best video game ever made. Early in our marriage, we pulled out the old N64 and went through the whole game again together. It was vital to both of us that we could share in the joy of Link's many quests to save the princess.
Well, we're at it again. We got the new Zelda game for Christmas; and though we haven't touched our Wii in maybe a year, we dusted the old thing off, bought the new controller we needed, and started adventuring. Yes, we have some final arrangements to make for Costa Rica in a couple weeks. Yes, I have a quilt top that I am very excited about, yet am ignoring. But it's Zelda we're talking about here. Everything else can wait.
I'm happy I married my perfect match.
On that note, we're also working on one of my previously mentioned goals for the new year: exploring Oregon to see where we want to settle after residency. McMinnville had been pretty alluring for us, but after having spent the weekend investigating the area, I don't think it's as high on our list as others. It was tons of fun to visit. We stayed at the McMenamin's hotel and explored the main street (which is 1/3 tasting rooms and therefore awesome), but all in all, I might prefer the northern part of the valley. Our next mission: Estacada.
