look what i did...

Yep, so you remember in yesterday's post when I talked about mine and Lance's oh-so-romantic anniversary weekend?? How we spent the day in Atlanta... and crossed something off of my 30 by 30 list?? Well... that 'something' just happened to be #13, "get my second tattoo."

So romantic, right? While I thought about getting Lance's name scripted in a heart on my arm, or tally marks for the number of years we have been married... I decided it would be best to just go with my original plan. I have been thinking about this tat for a while now. It reads, "Quaere Verum." And just in case you're not fluent in Latin, this translates to "Seek the Truth." I love this. I love that it is a constant reminder to myself... a reminder to seek the Truth of God's word... a reminder to seek His plan over my own.

I realize that this post will probably generate a few comments from the good ol' parental units, but like my dad said... "You can get whatever tattoos you want... when you're paying for it." (He did not however say the same thing when I got my nose pierced in college).

My tattoo artist, Brian, helping me to decide where the permanent marking should go...

Transfer is on... ready to start with the ink...

That folks, is a look of concentration... Tattoos hurt. Don't let anyone tell you any different.

The finished product... Still a little red around the edges, but overall, she's healing quite nicely.
