Goodbye Rover

As many of you know, my car (Rover, as Taylor would call it) was stolen a couple weeks ago. The police found it 4 days later. The car seemed to be fine, except for a broken window and garbage all over the inside, and was at the autobody shop. I thought we would be getting our car back in about a week. After they inspected our car, we got a message from our insurance adjuster last Wednesday that our car will be a write-off and that we won't be getting it back. I started to cry. I know it's silly, but I love my car. It has been so good to us. Here is a picture of me with Rover right after we bought it in 2002.



We have had our car for almost 10 years and have had many fun memories with it.



Look what those "bad guys," as Hannah would call them, did to my license plate!


I went to visit Rover on Friday at the autobody shop to grab some things from the trunk. And to say goodbye.


Good bye Rover, we will miss you.

Hello new car.



We bought a Hyundai Sonata Limited Turbo. It. Is. Awesome. I never expected to ever drive anything but a Honda, cause I love them, but as soon as I saw this car and took it for a drive, I fell in love. Yes, I already love my new car.

I love how you treat your car like a person with feelings! Haha! But it is hard to say goodbye to something you've had for that long! Goodbye Rover and Hello Rover II. ;) Not a bad exchange.....

We name all our cars! They are a little part of your family for sure. I hate when people steal things because they have no idea what significance it has to the people they took it from. It makes me so sad when people get stolen from. Ugh go Millwoods. Your new car looks hot though, go cruising haha.
