Ack! The Gurl Drives...


She's going to SO kill me for this picture - I'm sure! Well maybe not but she could at least drive down and wring my neck if she wanted now. Moms are SO corny, right?

Ok, well it felt totally weird but our girl got her licence - finally! She's in her 20's but I never got mine until I was 28. I don't recall what the holdup was for me, I guess I managed to get around on my two legs (is this why my knees are sounding like sandpaper these days?) Anyways I think I truly appreciated it when I finally did it - and so I am knowing how wonderful this must feel to our girl.


Anyways, just a few days after getting her hot little hands on her licence she calls up out of the blue on Sunday evening and says she's coming down. Not for a reason or out of duty, just coming down because she wants to hang out with us. So she came and scooped me (Mr. Miles had a meeting) and we went to Tim Hortons and she treated me to an Ice Cap. It DID feel very strange having HER drive ME! And wonderful. Seems like yesterday she was 'driving' one of those little hard plastic push toys on the sidewalk.


So, to redeem myself (and get taken out for more Tims in the future) here's a real pretty picture of us.

And in honour of this milestone event, I created a small element pack for you. Its personal use only. Hope you enjoy!




  1. Awwwe!! You two look great together! I´m so happy for her. Pass on my congrats to her.
    I remember when I went for my first drive with my girls, after they got their license....I was a bit scared! They were only 16! But now a days they are really good drivers.
