This is one of those posts that will make my mom so proud, I am sure!!!
Most of you know that I have a few tattoos..... I got my first a few years ago and then discovered that what they say is true...TATS ARE ADDICTIVE!
This past July I got one to symbolize my connection to Denmark... the Danish flag on the back of my neck....mainly because of Mads and our plan to spend the rest of our lives together, but then after we made the decision for me to move to Denmark this summer, my Danish flag got a whole new meaning! (And I discover, each time I wear my hair in a ponytail, that it is quite a conversation piece!!)
Well, in the last few months, I have been trying to think of a new tat that would be my connection to Texas...so that whoever saw it would know I am, and will always be, a Texan in my heart! I wanted a symbol that is recognizable...so as soon as someone sees it, they would know I am from Texas. But I also wanted something to denote my heritage.... that I consider my home to be the place where I was born and where the majority of my Cajun family still remains...a small SE Texas town called Nederland where Texas, Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico all meet.....
Then the question came up about WHERE to put this new tat?!? And my friend Shelly had the idea that since I have my roots/and I am GROUNDED in Texas...that the best place is my foot!
so now, I need your opinion.... My plan is to get this one for my birthday in March after Mads arrives. It will go on the outside of my right foot....under the ankle and here are two ideas I came up with. Vote... give me your thoughts...or if you have another idea, I would love to hear it!! I am not creative, by any stretch of the imagination!!
