my life in 200k miles

Think Kit Day Three: Lifeline! Share a photo that you haven't shown anyone and talk about it.

Yep, that's right. My 2006 Honda Civic has [more than] 200,000 miles on it. I took this while speeding up I-69 on the way to see my son at BSU. I snapped this because I thought it would be good on FB - but I started thinking about that 200K miles and how my life had changed and decided it was too sacred for FB. 

Ok I just need to tell you. I LOVE MY CAR. It's more home to me than my apartment. It is a symbol of my freedom. It doesn't just get me where I want to go. When I decide to face my fears and get out there & do something, it transports me. My kid used it to take his gf to prom. On long drives, I learned how to play the bones in my car. I sing at the top of my lungs - alone and with everyone else who comes along for the ride (can you feel the joy?) I cry, I dance, I laugh, I create, I DO in my car.

I love you girl (yes, my car is a girl).

Oh and Frances likes her too.


  1. What is your girl's name?! We have a girl too, named Yoshi, and a boy, Toshi. Yosh & Tosh for short ;)

    1. Hi teresa, her name is Frances. She's my 2nd best friend. What kind are Yosh and Tosh?

  2. A car that goes to 200,000 miles. Epic.
