goodbye, car

My first car ever was a silver 2003 Honda Civic. My parents bought it for me as an 18th birthday/high school graduation gift. I remember picking up friends for the last few weeks of school in that car. I remember driving to college in that car. I remember singing to Outkast with friends in that car. I remember sobbing in that car when my first boyfriend broke up with me. I remember driving to my first "date" with Alex in that car. I remember road trips in that car to Orlando, Atlanta, Dallas, North Carolina, Denver...

That car has been good to me. It's been in a few accidents but it's never failed me. It was there during some pretty crazy years in my life. I've been so blessed by that car and I'm thankful for all the places it's taken me. But it's time to say goodbye. We're choosing to sell it instead of taking it on another cross-country trip. Today she will no longer be mine. She's going to make a whole bunch of new memories with another teenager. I hope he loves his first car as much as I did.
