The Journey of my Car

You weren't my first car, but you were my first NEW car! 
I have so many memories and even though we may be parting ways, you will always be mine! (so cheesy...)
Wheeling and dealing at the car dealership to get your dream car to the cost that you could afford, thanks to the help of your older brother and a big graphic calculator.
The first whiff on your new car smell.
Learning the intricacies of how much or how little to press the gas and brake.
Driving with the windows down and the stereo blaring for the first time.

Driving with the windows down thinking you were so cool, hey look, I've got a car.
Cleaning it all the time to keep it looking new and shiny.
Testing its limits and storage capacity to many drives back and forth to Gainesville and Orlando.
So happy for parents who helped pay the car payment when I decided to waste spend my money on Chik-fil-A and 2am coffee runs.
The drive from work to Disney, as I got ready for one of the best weekends, my wedding.  I clearly remember how excited I was and so much anticipation!
My first (and hopefully last) car accident.

Paying off the car and not having a car payment.
Hitting that 100,000 mile mark....and then some.


Cautiously driving, holding that steering wheel at 10 and 2, barely going the speed limit, looking in my rearview mirror every 5 seconds to make sure my newborn baby is still sleeping soundly.

The toy-filled car and cheerio-ridden floor as said newborn became a talkative toddler.

You will be missed Honda Civic!
Such great memories, and so excited to make more and start on this new journey with my not-so-new-but-almost-brand-new MINIVAN!
I'm gonna make driving a mini-van SEXY!!! :)
