Relax, Recharge, Re-post #1: Just Another Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience

Many bloggers take a break in August and so too shall I. For the next few weeks, I’ll be Relaxing, Recharging and Re-posting some of what my stats say are YOUR  favorite reads. 

Here’s one from October of last year….

Just Another Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience

What constitutes a Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience?

I’ve been going back and forth on this for a while now, with my mom.….

…….and debated on whether or not to bring my kids.

But realized, this would be a Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience for them and me.

And my rather stubborn, 74-year old mother was not going to change her position anyway.

With or without me………………….

…………SHE was getting a tattoo!

Great job, Pepper -Thanks!

She – we, LOVE her first tat!

Not only did Pepper do a fantastic job on my mom’s tattoo. Everyone at Graceland was super nice to all of us. They let my kids sit on a couch close enough to be able to watch the process and they played Irish music in the shop while Pepper was inking Nana’s shamrock.

A little “shell-shocked”, they had no idea they were going to watch their Nana get a tattoo! Life is full of surprises!

When I asked my kids what was going through their minds while Nana was getting her tattoo, my daughter said:

I was thinking, ‘Oh great, now mom is going to want one, too!’

So maybe that will make for two “Once-In-A-Lifetime Experiences.”  We’ll see.

Have you ever taken somebody to get a tattoo?

    Ha! I totally remember this one, and I LOVE your mom for it, too! My mom has more tattoos than I can count, here there and everywhere on her body. They are smaller ones, sprinkled around her arms, legs, and elsewhere. She didnt’ get her first one until she was in her late 50’s early 60’s. Lovin’ life…that’s what it’s all about. 🙂

    You got that right, SWM! Lovin’ and Livin’ Life….that’s what it’s all about! We only have one so we might as well do the best we can with it. l I am giving the whole tattoo thing much thought & consideration myself. Do you have one? Hey, I hope all is well w/ you my California sunshine friend!! xoxox Karen
