tAts. Read that one carefully y’all. :p
I didn’t get a tattoo specifically for Kaden. Not yet. It didn’t feel right and I just wasn’t ready to have that “goodbye” feeling getting a tattoo brings. With the twins it was showing how small their feet were – proving they lived and were real. His is different.
But I had one in mind. So just like in New York for BlogHer last year, Rebecca and I headed out for tattoos again.
It’s kind of becoming our thing.
The verse is Job 13: 15 “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him”
And it was one I made mine before I even had Kaden. It’s very special and I mean it.
I love that the memory of the one Rebecca took of me was us freaking out that we’d done something wrong by getting them (she got one on her foot) a bit different than we wanted. We had to talk ourselves down off the tattoo regret ledge.
But I really love it. Really. And I had the most amazing time at Influence. You should all try to go next fall. It’s so amazing. I was blessed beyond belief to be with all those women.
