So, I feel I should say, right from the start, that my husband & I aren't exactly what you'd call "car people."
Sure we admire a nice sexy, sleek, and shiny model, but we don't really feel the need to claim one of our own. And when a good friend recently got a Bentley, I couldn't wait to go for a spin around the block (I'd never been in one before and they are truly beautiful, a real work of art, with every detail attended to!), but when the ride was over, I was just as happy to climb behind the wheel of my, er, non-Bentley.
So when we found ourselves in the market for a new car recently (mine's really getting up there in years), we were immediately faced with a sea of seemingly unlimited options. But, as we nailed down our criteria, which basically amounted to a combination of comfort, value, good gas mileage, and as minimal environmental impact as possible (keeping in spirit with my pledge to live greener), the list of potentials became a lot shorter, and we ended up choosing a new hybrid model that not only gets 35 mpg, but is made of 80% recyclable, plant based materials--how cool is that?!
Oh, and, on a side note, it just so happens to be sexy, shiny, and sleek too--so a total win/win!
Now we just have to wait for it to be delivered . . .
How about you? Are you Living Your Five??
