Tattoo

Hubby’s mom loved palm trees.  You should have seen their backyard – it was a tropical oasis in Arizona.  When they helped us landscape our yard she got her way and we also have tons of palm trees and hibiscus.  I absolutely love it!  So when she passed away I thought that a little palm tree tattoo would be a perfect way to remember her.  I spent the next two years convincing her best friend to get one with me!  When her BFF was finally ready last year I couldn’t go because I was pregnant with Gavin.  Timing was finally right and we went last week to get the tattoo.  What do you think?  I thought adding Gavin’s initials to the sand would be a nice touch.  I actually think I am going to head back and have more sand added.  This tattoo is on my upper hip.  Every time I see the bright colors I think of my M-in-L and how she is watching over Gavin in heaven.

  1. What a fantastic way to honor and remember her! I really like that it brings Gavin and her physically together as well.

  2. I love it! I have been thinking about getting a tattoo to remember my twins as well. I am scared though...but I think it would be healing.

    I love looking at your pic of Gavin on your side-bar. He reminds me so much of my babies.
