So today is my birthday. I plan to start off the day with my very first yoga lession – I’m very excited! Then I’ll be going out with my handsome husband and doing whatever I feel like that does not involve sitting in front of the computer. YAY! (This is me doing cartwheels if I could!)
When you’ve had as many birthdays as I’ve had, I think it gets a bit harder to figure out anything you could possibly want for your birthday. Today, I think I just want rest and relaxation. There is one thing though that is always on my long term wish list but I’m having the hardest time figuring out how to go about it. I need your help!
To help illustrate, I’ve dug out some of my old photo class work from college. That’s right! I sifted through my NEGATIVES and old hand-printed work made with REAL film and chemicals in a darkroom! Wow – I would love to say those were the days but digital is so much nicer to me!
Even in my teens, I loved old rusty stuff
This was perhaps my favorite shot from Black and White class – Technically it’s not great but it’s very rustic Tennessee to me…
Ok, here’s the one to illustrate my request. I don’t know what the assignment was but I have all of these pictures of my feet in different places (back when I painted my toenails blue – yikes!) Zero in on those feet because I seriously heart foot tatoos and I’ve wanted one for the longest! The problem is that I can’t think of what to get.
I want something that has some sort of meaning to me so that when I’m 60, I’ll still want it around. It will also be pretty small – probably no bigger than a half-dollar coin although I could be convinced otherwise. I just don’t see myself as a big tatoo kind of gal. I’ve thought about doing something with my heritage maybe? I’m primarily Irish-German-Norwegian and totally Southern. My spiritual life is something I feel pretty private about so I don’t think I’d be big on religious symbols unless it was something really artistic and obscure – that could be cool. Art has always been a big part of my life so it could incorporate that in some way. I also like tatoos that commemorate milestones.
So what do you think? Any ideas? Do you have a tatoo? What were your thoughts/motivation when you got yours? I need inspiration because I want to go through with this oh so badly! I want to still like the tatoo when I’m 60 – not going to finally get it! Any thoughts, good vibes, and overall idea-sharing would be lovely!
Maybe I will spend my birthday watching old episodes of Miami and LA Ink! Just watching gives me the ink addiction…this could be dangerous….
Thanks for your help!
