The Summer’s On Kia

There wasn’t a need for us to upgrade our family car last summer. We still owed over 10k on the one we owned, but I’d grown tired of its lack of space in the back seat for my growing girls and agitated by the Bluetooth connection that consistently wouldn’t connect. […]

The Kia Niro Drives Me To Happiness

I’ve been on this earth for nearly 500 months. I’ve seen more sport, live and in person, in May 2017 than any single month in my life. I did it all in the fuel efficient comfort of my charming, sporty, hybrid beauty, cherry red Kia Niro. The Kia Niro drives […]

48 Hours in New York City via Rio

Regenerative Braking, A Love Story

What’s the saying, “two steps forward, one step back”? [not to be confused, of course, with Bruce Springsteen’s 1987 sad sack ode to the opposite in momentum, “One Step Up (and Two Steps Back)”] I think successful people will tell you that the most impactful moments of their individual journeys in […]

21 And Figuring It Out (A Story of Millennials, Generation Z and the Kia Stinger)

The license has long become something they just have, no biggie anymore, and the drink is, probably, something they’ve already had in excess but the drinking itself has become official and so it is celebrated. After all, who doesn’t love a good celebration? A toast to you, kid. Happy birthday. […]
