Below is a picture of what my car looked like. This wasn't actually my car, I don't think I ever really took a picture but this is a 1996 Grand Am SE. Now you must know, mine was loaded. :) When I graduated from high school, I thought a sunroof, CD player, and tinted windows were the best buying perks EVER! Of course, now the car is LOADED with miles! On Tuesday, I handed over the keys to a high school gal whose family bought my car. As I drove to their house to drop off the car, I thought back to where those wheels took me....the summer after my senior year of high school, to my first days of college at UNI, college roadtrips with my friends, living and working in Woodbury, MN for part of a summer, my days of dating Mark, my first few years of youth ministry events (piling my LUGs into the backseats, and of course, even through the first few months of Addelyn's life (crawling into the backseat daily, trying to get the carseat in the right position!) Oh the fun....I'll kinda miss that good ole car.
But don't you worry now! The car has been replaced with a lovely Ford Focus Station Wagon. I still don't think it looks like other station wagons- I think it is more square so that makes it less "station wagonish." It is a much more practical family car than the Grand Am. Like I said, two door days have ended. Oh wow. A mom hair cut and now a mom car. What is next...ahhh...I'm only 26! ha ha:)
Oh, in case you were wondering...the whole station wagon idea is really growing on Mark. He doesn't even mind driving it! :)
