Once in a Lifetime?

Earlier this week, Jay & I looked at a cabin we are interested in purchasing. On the back deck, I snapped this picture.

The property overlooks a river, and has beautiful surroundings. My intention was to make this my "best shot" I shared this week.


Odd as it may seem, I've owned more real estate than cars in my life. Heck - I've owned more houses than cars!! (That is assuming that my car that I brought into the marriage is mine and his cars are his.) 

Yesterday, I had to pull over on the side of the road and take a picture of something so rare, I've never seen it in my lifetime. Discussing it over dinner with my parents, its not anything they have ever seen either. Not to say, of course, that I'll never see it again, but Quinn will always be my first.

The first car I ever paid for,
My first brand new car,
and now
My first car to ever hit 200,000 miles.

Thanks for the memories babe! 
And cups up to another 100,000!!


  1. Wow!! That doesn't happen often! Congrats on seeing so many miles on your car! What kind is it?

    1. Toyota Matrix - it was the first year they ever made it. B-)

  2. That's awesome that it's lasted so long. The car I drove until 2 years ago had 150k!
    And stunning cabin view!

  3. I'm pretty sure my van won't get there. Can't imagine having it for another 75k miles.

  4. I'm guessing that's a once in a lifetime shot for you. I love the first one too. You are so amazingly lucky to live in the Smokey Mountains. I love it there.

  5. I just did this, too!! Silvie has been [mostly] good to me for 200,000 miles and counting! My first, too, but my dad and brother have done this a couple of times over. I texted my picture to my dad, and he texted back, "You learned from the Master!!" :)
