I Wanna Talk About Me

Savannah, Georgia, United States
As you can see, I am still just me. 27 years old, born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. Almost 9 years into a relationship with the man I gave my heart to. We are the proud parents of 3 dogs and 2 cats. You will see them all here, a lot. I lost my mother November 18, 2008. I am now struggling to live life without her, but I have an amazing boyfriend and fantastic friends to help me through. Oh, and Duct Tape is the best invention. EVER.

Doin' it and doin' it and doin' it...well, finally

I’m finally doing it. I’m going to get my first tattoo tomorrow. Actually, my first two tattoos.

Catie (the cousin/sister/best friend/mother of Brooklyn) and I are getting matching Celtic Sisterhood symbols. Mine will be monochromatic black and gray. Hers will be all bright and stuff. This is what the Tattoo artist is going by.

I am also getting a smiley face on my left wrist. Why a smiley face? Glad you asked. For mom. She always signed her name with a smiley face. Whether it was a note in my lunch box at school, a birthday card, or just a ‘have a good day’ note. She loved smiley faces. I thought, what better way for me to never forget her than to put a simple, small smiley face on my wrist.

Wish me luck.

P.S. Jess will be there through the entire thing, I'm sure she will have awesome commentary about how much of a wussy I am. Gotta love her.


  1. Can't wait to see the tatts!

    Yay on making jewelry. Glad I was the inspiration. If you ever open up an etsy shop, let me know and I'll feature you on my blog.

  2. Muhahahaha! This is going to be FUN! As a seasoned tattoo get'r person, I have to say this is going to be so very enjoyable seeing someone for the first time! I will take pictures!

  3. This should be exciting! I can't wait to see the tatts too! Is it going to be a generic smiley like what is on the CRV, or do you have one that your mom did that you are going to use?

    Jess... you will definitely have to document this through pictures and video. I can't wait to see them.

  4. what a great memorial!! i also am getting a memorial tat in the next few days and think it is great to be able to see it every day and remember. Cant wait to c pics... thnx for the follow will enjoy coming back here!! shane

  5. I am hoping for photos of you getting them. Is that too much to ask?
