Family Life- Saying Goodbye

elementcar-opt

After shedding some tears, I finally said goodbye to my 2004 Honda Element. How could a piece of metal on wheels cause me to cry? In one word- memories. Lots of them. Camping trips in upstate New York, family vacations, toting my son to & from school, bringing home dozens of plants (including a large dogwood tree with rootball!!), hauling prized antiques (like my fireplace mantel) and garage sale finds, construction materials, not to mention plenty of visits to the vet with the dog. I’ll certainly miss that car.
