Car Troubles


Happy Friday! As I am sure it is the case with everyone, I am so happy to see this day come! It’s going to be a busy weekend ahead and the last one until April.

April is a big month in my mind! It was the month that I looked and thought, “going to be REALLY real that the wedding is around the corner is April”.

April is the month of many events. Shower, bachelorette and stag not to mention the endless meetings with vendors as well! It’s going to be an exciting time.

It’s all a little overwhelming at times. Endless thought’s and emotions are running through my head. When I need a moment, I take a drive.

Funny though, my best thinking I do is in my car. Life is so busy that I’m not able to take a moment to think. When I’m in the car? Sure, I’m listening to the radio but for the most part it’s just me and my thoughts.

My car has been on endless adventures! Especially fun road tours to and from Guelph, my old University town.


My car was a place of refuge when Tucker and I were moving home from British Columbia.

My little red jeep has been loaded to the rafters as I’ve gone for work and delivered product to clients.

My car has been good to Ryan and I. Taking us to and from airports, camping trips, road tours. Endless portraits in the front seats.

More recently, my car has been a therapist. It’s seen my tears and smiles. It’s the place where I do my best thinking. I sit and reflect while I’m driving on the open road.

So, as you can see, I really love my car. Unfortunately, it’s mileage and age is starting to show and it isn’t as reliable as it once was. Almost daily, for the last month, a new problem has developed. It is literally falling apart. It’s time for a new vehicle.

I’m been doing some looking around for the last two weeks and I’ve decided between these two vehicles.

1. Ford Edge

2. Chevrolet Equinox


I have to say I do have a small preference between the two but you tell me. Which one do you prefer? Are you a ford or a Chevy person?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!



  1. take the one that has a comfy sit & leg room ..

  2. I really thought I was a Ford person through and through and then we bought my hubby a Chevy Half ton pick up. Yeah go figure. I've ridden in the Ford before though and they're nice! I personally wouldn't buy that Chevy b/c I think my ex's sister drives one and I couldn't be seen in the same vehicle as her. Just sayin.... ha!

  3. Chevy all the way!!!! PKB
