The Weekend & The Bond

Last weekend was our first non-working weekend in quite some time. With the recent change in our weekly schedule, we thought we’d go big!

The weekend started with a date to see Moonrise Kingdom. It was great … so great. Wes Anderson makes my heart sing. I’d see it again … and again.

Saturday morning started out a little lazy …

We had an appointment to get new tattoos that afternoon … so, to make time go by a little faster, we headed over to Blossoming Lotus for AMAZING vegan food!! I had the Crispy Thai Wrap. SO GOOD.

We got to the tattoo studio a bit early & got to watch a storm roll through …

Soon enough, Mr. Lanusse was ready for us …

Annnndddd … the big reveal:

The tattoos are super meaningful to us. In fact, almost as soon as we got them, I decided I didn’t want anyone to know about them. Weird, right? Like, this really obvious tattoo suddenly seemed so sacred to me … But, in some ways, we got the tattoos to ‘declare’ our union, and sharing them seems only fair!! :)  The bands are to represent what our wedding bands stand for. Then, there’s the code on the inside … it represents the day we met back in 2005. It was through a simple Myspace message … the one that changed both of our lives.

Jimmy went with a bolder tattoo, and I decided to go a little more delicate with mine …

They’re both healing nicely … and of course, we’re both longing for more already. Proud we finally did it, and it’s a really beautiful reminder of our love.

On Sunday, we moseyed around the city & went to Little Big Burger for lunch. Oh. My. Goodness. That place was GOOD. The fries were amazing, and their little veggie burger were perfection.

Oh, what a weekend …
