Bittersweet Memories; That Is All I'm Taking With Me

The good news: we got an awesome new van for our growing family!
The sad news: we didn't need 3 vehicles and decided to part with Mr. Wonderful's as it was worth a little less than my car.
I wouldn't say I've ever been attached to a vehicle before--I'm not really what you would call a "car person."
I'm happy with a car as long as it gets me from Point A to Point B in a dependable manner.
Mr. Wonderful isn't really a car person either--but this car was a little special!
This was the first car he bought.
He picked it out new and paid for it himself and has driven it solely for the last 11 years.
He owned it the entire time we dated--he picked me up from Willet's dorm in it
(he looked so handsome and fabulous in his new car sitting there waiting for me!).
We drove to our honeymoon in it (he drove, I opened up cards and counted $$ tee hee!).
It's become a part of the family and we were a little sad to see it go.

Goodbye car!
You've been with us for the very best years of our lives.
We'll miss you!
p.s. this photo wasn't staged--he really loves this car enough to hug it to say goodbye!

Aww!! I miss the Sephia, too. I have so many fond memories of it from college. Especially fitting way too many people into it to drive to the Drehmer's house on Sundays! :)

Hah! Alyssa just said pretty much the exact same thing I was going to. Such a great car! My Kia is still going strong at almost 8 years (6 1/2 of them with me) . . .
