After 15,674 miles, it was time to say good bye.

Today marks the end of an era. I sadly parted ways with a trusted friend who had seen me through the best of times and the worst of times. She was in my life for 5 and a half years and each time we meet, I was always excited to see her.

I remember the day we meet like it was yesterday. It was the summer of 2006 and my family was on the most memorable vacation we have had to date. It was at Rosemary Beach was where I meet Blu. She arrived just as pretty as ever. We went out for our first adventure together as a family and from there, started a long relationship that I will cherish forever.

She was with me through 1 pregnancy, 3 kids, many 5k’s, alot of training, long walks, short runs and many adventures all over America with my kids in tow. I will always remember the times we had together. Thank you to BabyTrend for making the Safari TT my favorite stroller EVER.

Now that my older 2 are old enough to ride bike along side me as I run and I only have one baby to push around, I feel that it is now time to let go. It sat in my yard for over a year. To attached to part with it, I finally gave in today. I feel like I just lost an old friend. Time to pack away the memories and make some new ones.

    That WAS the best stroller EVER!! I remember you making me test drive it at the mall b/c you wanted me to see how easy it was to push. I have to admit…it was AMAZING!! :) Sorry for your loss…on to a singleton stroller that I hope you build a similar love for when new baby girl arrives. :)
