Â I’ve had quite a few cars in my life and I wish I had never had that many cars.Â What a waste of money buying a brand new car.Â
As I grew older, I realized it was better for me to own a used car and to have it for many years.Â Cars now a days seem to last much longer and knock on wood, I haven’t had major problems with any of my cars except for my very first car, the VW Karmann Ghia.Â It literaryÂ rusted apart and then I went on to my next car the 2 door Skylark.Â It was pretty and made just for me.Â I then went on to a station wagon, which didn’t last very long at all.Â The Jeep was just coming out when I purchased it.Â No carpeting, no radio, nothing was in that vehicle.Â But it did well for me in the winters and I had it for quite a while.Â
I then went on to my first foreign car the Nissan Altima which I loved alot.Â It was a stick and I truly enjoyed driving it.Â When my son left for college, we traded in for the Nissan Maxima, which was bigger for all our weekly trips to his college for visits and ballgames.Â My son and husband were not comfy in my Altima.Â It was too small for over 6 foot tall men.Â I kept that Maxima for 10 years and traded it off on a used Honda CRV which we still have today and its almost at 100,000 miles.Â Great vehicle and getsÂ great gas mileage.Â My poor Maxima was in pretty bad shape when we traded it in.Â The word “Maxima” was on the back of the car and after 10 years all it said was “Maxi”.Â Something I was proud to drive around with on the back of my car.Â I think it had almost 125,000 miles on it.
I don’t know if I would ever buy a new car again.Â My fun side of me wants a convertable VW bug and my sensible side says a Volvo, one of the safest cars on the road today.
My son is turning 29 today and I thought I would make a quick layout about him today.Â The kit I used is the Autumn collab kit by Brigit Kerr and Flergs.Â I just love their work!Â I know I will always find beautiful kits from them.Â The word art is a freebie by Dielle.
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
