Goodbye Old Friend

Well, I sold my Jeep today. I am happy to do it becaus it's time to let it go and I'm putting the money towards my wedding but it is definitely bittersweet. My grandmother bought me that Jeep when I was 16. (14 years ago!) I still remember driving her around in it. She passed away not too long after getting me the Jeep. It's been a great car and I've loved driving it. (some of you remember me driving it in college!) But another personality quirk of mine is that I form sentimental attachments to THINGS. Because things often have memories attached to them and I am loathe to part with them. I've held onto my Jeep much longer than I should have because it's my first car and there are so many memories attached to it. But it's time to say goodbye and start the next chapter of my life with my Subaru.

So, happy trails old friend!

ohh, funny, I was just wondering yesterday if you had ever sold it.

I just bid adieu to my beloved Honda-- also 14 years old. A rite of passage, I guess.
