I'd vote for the pumpkin/raisin coalition.

I'm so glad to read this! No, seriously: I've been saying for about five years now (since the pumpkin/chocolate combo really came into vogue) that it was ridiculous. Why on earth would I want the taste of squash with the taste of chocolate? IT MAKES NO SENSE. Pumpkin and raisins, though? I can totally get behind that.

WONDERFUL photos, Elizabeth... really loving the magic of those top two...I'd like to go to those worlds right now. I love pumpkin...in anything. But because I'm on the fence about pumpkin w/chocolate vs. pumpkin w/raisins... I bake both ways. Each way tastes good. This is one rare things I cannot decide on...LOL! ;o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

Did you really name your car? I love that. My 16 year old son has a black truck. The other day he told me he didn't feel like he had bonded with his truck yet, and he felt this was because he could not think of a name for his truck. (I have to say I loved this conversation with him because this was totally something I would say.) A few days later he announced he had named his truck "Thunder". Very fitting, I thought. I adore my son...he's a creative soul. :)
Oh, and the pumpkin and raisins sound yummy!

@tricia: i did! i've been trying to think of a name for ages now but couldn't find the right one. this feels perfect. i love your conversation and his name - i hope he soon feels that bond!

@tracy: what a clever idea! if i didn't absolutely absolutely prefer raisins, i would try that myself!

@kylie: you are clearly a kindred spirit! i tip my hat to you.

@ann: yay! i appreciate your vote! ;)

@tammy: i wonder. we lived in the midwest and my mom made them. maybe it was a finnish thing? or not. i don't know if finns eat pumpkin or raisins, lol.

i wasn't going to comment on this because i felt like i didn't belong in the comment section because everyone was agreeing with you. but then i realized that i had to stand up for my side:) pumpkin+raisins=EEW!

@helen: of course you can chime in! i love that you love pumpkin & chocolate - even as i still want none of it. ;)

oohhh, i love your apps! look like hipstamatic. are you on instagram?

I like Serendipity. I bet people would ask for 'the story behind the name' once you tell them your ride's name. Hehe. I remember naming my first car Albert. I don't know, it just sort of popped into my head. Hehe. I love your photos. May I ask what app you used?

I guess naming your car makes you more attached to it. Serendipity is a nice, warm name. Hmmm, I wonder if you met your car by chance.

Serendipity, which means “pleasant surprise,” is very well-suited for an old-fashioned, yet fantastic car. That’s almost the same truck Bella Swan drove in the movie, right? I also find it quite cool for a girl to own a miniature truck-inspired car. :D

Giving names is a sign of attachment, of how much you value that one thing, that you even name it. It’s like what Mike Wazowski from Monster’s Inc. said: “Once you name it, you start getting attached to it.” Serendipity is a catchy name. Is there any story behind that name or, maybe you were so attached with the movie “Serendipity”? Anyway, how’s your car now?
