Family of balloons

A few years ago, while in Australia, I got a tattoo of a cluster of balloons. One for my dad, one for my mom, one for my sister. My family. My home. My heart.

When my mom died I really felt that I needed a tattoo. For memory, for pain, for grief, for fear. for love.
So I got my mom's handwriting attached to my family of balloons, saying what she always said, what she always wrote to us, what she always made sure we knew.

This is right after the tape was taken off. It's less painful than it looks.

I don't want to forget her. I don't want anyone to forget her. Her absence is palpable.

Up nights

Leggings as pants have been a thing for a while. But I have not been part of it because it was weird...

feb 2015

I also have a goal to be a bit more badass in my look.

Leggings & Cardi: Ricki's
boots: Jessica Simpson

I think I might be a convert but only if they are classy / badassy leggings.
