For those of you who do not know, at the beginning of the year I created a bucket list of things to achieve in 2017. I don't care about going in any specific order, so I decided to jump down to #29- Get Another Tattoo.
This tattoo is one that I have been thinking about for a long time now, but I wasn't sure how to really do it. My Aunt Nevie passed away from colon cancer a couple of years ago, and I always wanted my first tattoo be represent her or something about her. I've mentally created multiple tattoos but I never could stick to them until I just decided to get one thing to just be a symbol. But what does a moon have to do with my Aunt?
Once when I was in high school my mother was talking to my Uncle. She handed the phone off to me, and then I somehow got to talk with my Aunt. Her cancer had come back and it was in full force. She hadn't been in the mood to really talk with people at the time, but this day she wanted to talk with me. I honestly have no idea what our conversation even consisted of or how long it was, but I can vividly remember the end of our conversation. I was telling her I loved her and she told me, "I love you to the moon and back". Afterwards I remember just bawling my eyes out because it felt like she was saying goodbye and I wasn't ready. Little did I know she would have gotten worse, and soon the family was called in. On August 24, 2013 Aunt Nevie went to heaven and I've never cherished words more in my life. I got the opportunity to say goodbye, and she gave it to me.
So, this one's for you Aunt Nevie.
I am so glad you stopped by. I cannot wait to hear from you!
