16 All Over Again

September, 2013
Remember when you were a teenager, and you finally got your license? I specifically remember the feeling of independence and freedom the first time I drove to Target by myself because I just needed a couple things. I didn't have to wait until someone else needed to go or coordinate, I was free. 

This week, we bought this little beauty and I've enjoyed those same feelings of independence and freedom all over again. When I needed to go to the grocery store, I didn't have to coordinate and plan and take Aaron to work and pick him up at lunch to take him to his afternoon clinic, and then pack a bunch of cranky kids in the car right as I was trying to get dinner on to pick him up again. I was free. I just went to the store and did my shopping like it was no big deal. 

After 2 years of being a one car family, that freedom feels like bliss! I'm so happy to welcome this little addition to our family! Even if it means we'll actually have to shovel our super long driveway this winter. Absence makes the heart grow go fonder, and it sure prevents you from taking things for granted!
