This week was rather exciting because my daughter Rachel and I got our SHINE t-shirts,
necklace and bracelet in from The Shine Project. With our upcoming "shine" inspired
food drive this weekend we thought we'd have a fun photo shoot in our shine shirts.

Can you tell it was freezing? Looking closely you can see the goose bumps on my arms. Burrrrrr!
I'm not close to being a model, but this was a fun day with my daughter.
We walked away with a handful of memories. That's the most important part.

Tattoo: Walk by Faith

My husband Chaz and I got our first tattoos about 10 years ago. Mine was a sun and moon design on my lower back and Chaz got an warrior band on his arm. I later had a small cross added between my shoulder blades and he got a tribal design on his shoulder. My husband and I both decided what we really wanted was scripture. Simple and to the point. It took us year to choose exactly what we wanted and were to put it. 

I got a kick out the sign walking in....
The big day came and I let the hubs go first. {I wasn't a chicken, he volunteered!}
My husband went with Romans 12.

For me, a daily reminder of 2 Corinthians 5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight." 

Going in, this was my idea.
 My little Charlie gave me a kiss for luck.
 Then she hugged me and said "I hope you don't die." She wasn't serious and got me to laugh.
 My time was getting closer and I was a wee bit nervous. 
 And then the fun began. 
I had been told by everyone who had a tattoo on their foot how much it hurt.
 Praying to hold myself together {since the last time I cried, a lot}. 
 Twenty minutes later, and the least painful tattoo I've ever gotten, was done.
Happy Monday. Have a blessed week.
