The newest addition to our family... Yep! That's right, I am now a minivan mama. A crunchy, sassy minivan mama perhaps...but there is no hiding my status behind the compact vehicle any longer. A new perspective on life...brought to you by: I have yet to name her...but the wheels are turning and I will take any suggestions you may have! As for how I feel about the "new" purchase (am I really in the "van-a-wagon" season of my life?), well...I suppose it could be somewhat ummmmm alarming...but oh the room...and sitting up high...and feeling a tad bit safer with my babies riding along...I am LOVING it. And I love old things. I love that this van has a whole life story and that there are memories that come with the package and that there are idiosyncrasies that we need to become familiar with...just like getting to know any new addition to the family! It shall be fun. And the kiddos? they dig it. Journey smiles when she looks out the window and Asher is thrilled with it being a "BIG tar" and with the brand new view he gets to admire on our "wides". He also may have a career as a future car model... wait....never mind...maybe a career as the next evil canevil... We are already warming her up to our crazy selves. I think she's going to like it here....don't you?
