Yay! Our very first BRAND NEW car!!!

Well, today ranks up there as one of thEE most fun days this summer. Why? Because we got a NEW car!!! No, not a "new" used car, but the real deal--complete with shiny green paint and a warranty! Wow--what a strange and liberating feeling to drive something that isn't squeaking or leaking, something that will, without a doubt, get us from point A to point B without having to cross our fingers.

We were so excited that Vinny and I decided to go on a date to our "special" place. We drove all the way to Park Rapids, almost an hour away, just so we could have supper at A&W. Awwww, how romantic! :)- We didn't even have to get out of the car.

We love our new lime-green Honda Element--yes, we do!!!

Today I feel THANKFUL.

Cool beans. I got a brand new car three years ago and still can't believe that the odometer started at 4. It was practically virginal.

Yep, it was really brand new when you bought it - it's shining on this pic! Do you still have this car with you? Buying a brand new car to call our own is really one of the best things in life!
