On vacation in Destin, FL two years ago with our friends Jad, Melissa, Jarrod and Laura, I awoke at 3:00 AM one night with a tattoo revelation.

I never wanted a tattoo.

I'm not saying the Lord told me to get a tattoo. :)

But I do believe out of my creative nature this idea came to me.

The children's song, "Praise Him, Praise Him, All ye little children, God is Love, God is Love," was in my head. I thought it would be neat to get the melody line of "God is Love," as a tattoo. I told everyone the next morning and they thought it was a great idea. Jarrod threatened to steal it!

So, for the past two years I held on to this creative moment. I have never wavered on my idea and today, I followed through. :)

It started here:

And was made beautiful by Laura the tattoo artist:

It was so much fun to be surrounded by some of my closest friends cheering me on! It hurt REAL bad, but I was tough and once again lived out my motto for 2010, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!"

We ended the night carving pumpkins! Happy Halloween!


  1. Oh my gosh! I can't believe you did it. Love it!

  2. It looks Amazing! So excited you did it!

  3. AAAGGGHHH!!! I can't believe my little Minerva got a tattoo! Actually, I'm proud of you :) What an awesome idea, too! And I totally went to Francesca's when I got back to Houston and bought that card. Just looking for a frame to make it a home :) LOVE YOU!
