This summer we were blessed to be able to buy Chris' grandmother's van from her. Our old van was on it's last leg and her van was nice. By nice, I mean "special edition" nice. That means all the features that a mother of four young kids doesn't deserve and probably shouldn't have. Built in DVD player, stow-in-go seating, leather seats, key less doors. The list is long. But I am currently addicted to one of the features I never knew I was missing.
Heated seats. Seriously. I had never tried these before. Last week one night we got in the van and it was pretty chilly outside. I pushed the button and fell in love! Now when I get in the car -- and yes, it's been 80 outside -- I put the AC on and the heated seats on. I make excuses. My back is a little sore. Or my legs, or whatever. Really, I just love how relaxing it is. I was worn out the other night and sore from exercising and I told Chris what I really wanted to do was just go sit in the van with my heated seats. I didn't. But it did cross my mind! It's something I never knew I was missing, and now hope I don't have to live without.
Life's littlest luxeries are sometimes the best!
