After I shared the story of Andrew's wedding band tattoo I was super inspired to get one of my own. We thought a wedding band would be a great idea but it never came to fruition. Instead Andrew gifted me three stackable wedding bands (I like change too much for just one band) on my birthday. It was a much better choice for me and I'm really glad we waited.
One day, not long ago, I was struck by the idea of having our wedding vow written in Andrew's handwriting as a tattoo. I knew I wanted it in at least two lines and on my left forearm. I also knew that Anna would need to come with us!
With no planning at all, just some rum and coke the night before and an idea, we did it. Serendipitously.
|This is my nervous look. I was, oh I was.|
Before you ask me if it hurt:
We found Lee, he is also who did Andrew's wedding band (we LOVE that), and he did a fantastic job for me. He helped talk me though it and answered all of my first timer questions. If you're in the Asheville area, let me know and I'll give you his info. He's phenomenal!
I'm honored to have our wedding vow in my beloved's handwriting forever. It gives me butterflies each time I see it and reminds me of standing in the woods while the rest of the world melted away, holding his hand, and saying these words as a pledge. Words that will last forever.
