I lean toward the first option, myself.
So here's a question for you, since I've been cleaning rather than sewing. If you had the choice, would you rather travel to somewhere special and amazing, or would you rather stay home and receive a really special and amazing gift (not of travel)?
No, you can not say you want to receive a special gift while traveling somewhere amazing.
Talk amongst yourselves. I'll be back when the swatch bins are up to date.
