happy love day
My husband and I were able to get out of the house by ourselves on Saturday afternoon.  My very sweet brother offered to watch our boys as they were napping.  We went to JoAnn Fabrics to pick out some fabric to make an ottoman.  (one of my many projects to share with you) 
While we were walking around, there was a lady with a really cool Lotus tattoo on her wrist.  I said to my husband how much I wanted to get a love tattoo on my wrist.  It's something I've been wanting for several years.  He looked at me and said,"lets just do it!"  OKAY! 
So, we found a local tattoo parlor downtown where we live and told them what we wanted.  My sweet husband decided to get the same thing as me.  A reminder of how much we love each other, our boys, life, friends and family.  It's something to look at when we're feeling a little down to remind us of how much love we have in our life. 
I hope everyone has a very special Valentines Day & remember to tell those you are close to how much you love them. 
 (sorry the tattoo looks a little gray, it's still healing)


  1. That is so cool! I've been wanting to get one on my wrist, but I was afraid it would hurt too much. I've got three... one on my lower back (for my Dad), one on my upper back, and one on my bottom right calf (for my brother when he went to Iraq). So did it hurt? Love the simplicity of it!!!

  2. you must tell me how much this hurts....i have wanted to get a tattoo for years and the wrist is one of my potential spots (no eventual sagging!)
