RIP Escort

I bought the Escort my senior year of high school.  I saved up all my $2,500 worth of pennies from work over the years and I did it, I bought my very own car. I couldn't even test drive her because she was a stick shift and I didn't drive stick at that time. My mom drove her and said she felt good and I trusted her. She didn't really feel good to me until a few months later when I finally stopped stalling at every single red light and stop sign. We had a bumpy start to our relationship but once we figured each other out, we were inseparable. 


It's strange how we personify things like our cars. But seriously, is it just me or is your car like family?  The Escort has always felt like a member of my family...sometimes even a bff, if you will. On my mission I missed the Escort just about as much as I missed my bff, no joke. I would ask how she was doing every couple of months and I imagined our reunion (I really really missed driving for a year and a half if you couldn't tell).  Same with my freshman year of college. I didn't have her with me and it KILLED me. I was SO excited when I finally got to drive her out to Utah my sophomore year.

I remember college days, living in tiny apartments with six girls...it's hard to have any privacy and sometimes, you just need a little privacy. The Escort was my get away, my safe place (I clearly didn't have a boyfriend). I remember driving up Provo Canyon at times just to think, to cry, to relax...just to drive.

The Escort took Darin and I through the first three years of marriage, bringing our baby home from the hospital, four cross country road trips, many road trips to Idaho and so much more! Now our sweet Escort has past to the other side. It was unexpected, sudden and scary, but thankfully it happened quickly and she didn't have to suffer long. She was such an amazingly reliable car and I can only hope that our future cars will be as reliable. 



Luckily Shae was able to take her out for some spins before she passed.


His hair!


Welcome to the family Camry, you have big shoes to fill.

  1. Always love your blog, and this one earned a sad smile. I remember being at BYU and driving into Provo Canyon in my own car, getting some quiet time that's hard to find in the dorms, and I remember driving your car back from Provo when you went on your mission. It was a nice little car. I'm glad you have good memories and I hope the Camry serves you as well.
