Goodbye, Sweet Little Civic

It's official.

The sweet, reliable, zippy little Honda Civic that Grant has had for the entirety of his adult life is gone.

We traded it in.

For a big, gas-guzzling, maroon, 4-door Ford F-150 XLT.

Grant needed something a bit more updated since he takes clients out a lot now. There is a part of us that thinks we are insane since the Civic had NO payments left and was still running just fine, but it was time to make the upgrade after 10 years.

We really are excited, even though saying goodbye to the Civic was bittersweet. Grant picked me up for our first date in that car! The first time he kissed me? We were leaning against that car! That's the car that got him to and from Denton to come visit me in college. That's the car we were in as he drove me to our engagement party just minutes after we got engaged. We brought Moxie dog home to our apartment for the first time in that car.

It was a good little car.

You were good to us, little Civic.

And we are super excited about our truck adventures!

Bless that dear sweet Civic. The last time I saw it was when Grant popped out of the sunroof to wave goodbye at me on Friday moment. Why didn't I get a picture? I treasure that memory forever. Can he do that in his new truck too?

P.S. Not sure where the word "moment" came from. Delete that in your memory please. Also, I think I meant to say, "I will treasure that memory forever." Typos at their best!

Congratulations! I understand the bittersweetness. I felt the same about my little civic I got when I was 16. You need to post pictures!
