For the past twelve years, I’ve driven a red 1999 Honda CRV. Recently, a friend I’d not seen in five years tracked me down in the produce section of Publix because she’d seen my CRV and knew I was there. This is why I decided to feature my new ride today—a 2008 Honda Odyssey. 

For family and friends in town, this may not be as distinctive as a bright red cherry on wheels but hopefully you’ll spot me. Just look for a black Odyssey with an open sunroof and a woman pushing the button on her steering wheel to up the volume (unless Piper is in the back, of course. 🙂

Some have asked “Why a van?”

Two reasons alone dictated this choice:

1. Grandchildren. It’s one of the safest and roomiest vehicles on the road.
2. My traveling woes. We’re hoping a DVD player playing Lark Rise to Candleford in the backseat will help in those efforts. And I’m sure the grandchildren won’t mind it either. 

Have a great weekend, everyone!
