Yesterday our family had to say goodbye to an honorary family member.

Goodbyes are often hard and this one was no different.

Especially since over the last 6 months or so we had grown very attached.

This particular honorary family member helped us create new family and solo travel memories, carefully transported my son around after his accident, brought our new puppy home, kept us warm and toasty throughout an insanely cold PA winter, made me fall in love with driving and much more.

We may have said goodbye to the Kia Forte, but that doesn’t mean our family’s travel stories will stop. Instead they will be expanding and growing thanks to a new family member that recently arrived.

Now that I told you about our former beloved Kia Forte, its time for you to meet our new family member (and it’s not what you think).

Today we welcomed a beautiful pearl white 2018 Kia Sorento into our family!

I can’t wait to share so much more about this luxurious, spacious vehicle with you, along with all the places it will take us this year.

Whether I am taking a solo, family or road trip with the Doodles, we are constantly on the go. Our cars act like a second home for us and the 2018 Kia Sorento already seems like it will fit the bill perfectly.

My road trip buddies, the Doodle Duo, even gave it their seal of approval!

Stay tuned as I share our real travel stories in the Kia Sorento this year, both near and far, both positive and negative and both happy and sad (hopefully mostly happy). Some of which will include drives to the airport (for two very exciting trips that are coming up), adventures to new places, drives with my son to meet his Dad for dinner (co-parenting at its best), unique road trips, quality time with my best girlfriend and much, much more.

Where are some places you think our family should road trip it to this year?

Hard to say goodbye to a good car. But say hello to your new one.

Our family has done many a road tip. I don’t think the destination really matters all that much. It’s the time spent together and the memories you will make that matter. Have fun! The Sorento sounds fantastic!

Yes! All about the memories made!
