Well, it's over. We just finished watching the finale. I made Korean food, I decorated the TV with Korean flags and we gave it a proper send off. :)
And it was AMAZING! I was a little nervous about the end because in my experience Korean dramas sometimes have abrupt endings. There have been a few dramas that I really loved that just lost it in the last episode. I need a satisfying wrap up. Fortunately this one delivered. Some of it was happy and some of it was sad, but they gave it a proper goodbye and I really loved it.
The show started out as a cute love story but as the story progressed it was about so much more. It was about family and loyalty and honesty and living the life you truly want to live. It had a lot of good lessons about what's important in life. It was a story of how money truly can't buy love and happiness, but how love can conquer anything.
I loved it. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me think. I want to start back at episode one and watch the whole saga unfold again. It really was beautiful.
So I will miss it. I'll will miss having it to look forward to each week. It was fun while it lasted.
Tomorrow is carpet day! Shawn has the day off and we're going to be overseeing the carpet project and then spending some time at Lowes buying blinds for the windows and hopefully hanging a few things on the walls. There is a heavy mirror and a big metal piece that need to be hung with anchor screws and we're going to attempt to do it without ruining the nice new paint job. Yikes.
I will post photos tomorrow when the carpet is done!
