So I have it figured out...

I got an email from a great blog reader, Tricia.  She told me that she got a tattoo of a tree & birds, because we give our children roots & then wings.  This sounds PERFECT for me because I adore trees & what a true statement.

I want something really whimsical and feminine on my foot.  I don't want it to be dark or thick and heavy looking, because that's just not me. 

I love only the top of this tree & would love it even more in pinks, turquoises & purples.  The bottom of it I HATE!

I also love the top of this tree & the trunk I like better.  It's obviously huge & I'm not sure how it would look shrunk down to my size 7 foot.

I have decided I want a J + A on the tree trunk & then a pink bird & a blue bird in the sky for my babies.  So now I just have to find someone to draw exactly what I want, or take it to a tattoo artist & let them work their magic for me!

I'm going Friday, July 2nd with my two best girls to St. Louis for the night & I've been told of an amazing artist down there at Iron Age.  So I am thinking maybe we'll pop in and see what I can do.  I may come home with an amazing piece of body art! 


  1. Well you go Annie girl:) It was soooo good to see all of you yesterday. How did you guys do?


  2. Wow, I can't wait to see it! I just don't think I am brave enough to get one! So, better you than me!

  3. I cannot wait to see the one you actually get. I, too, am too chicken/old (?) to get one, but I love the image you paint with your vision and it will have lasting meaning for your family.

  4. Annie, can't wait to see your tattoo!! I love both of mine..


  5. May I suggest that you incorporate "Fe" in honor of my favorite element, Iron? ;)

  6. Sounds cute. I bet the artist will be able to draw something exactly like you'd want. I love the little details on the tree- birds, etc. would make a cute drawing for the wall too. I may have to steal that....

  7. I love the first one! They are both great, but the first one rocks. It would be a great back or thigh tat.


Thank you so much for your kind words & support! I love hearing from you & read each and every comment you leave for me! ~Annie
