A Permanent Wedding Gift

Big news going on here, Hive. See, remember when I told you about my secret, which was actually Mr. Giraffe's secret?

Well, if you don't, I'll remind you. Three years ago, Mr. G got a giant Miss G tattoo on his back.

I know, hardcore, yo! So after working up my courage for the last almost three years, I finally did the same for Mr. Giraffe. I was terrified, and sweaty, and made the artist stop twice because of said freaking out (otherwise, it should have only taken 7 minutes), but I did it!

Normally, I'm a pretty conservative and straight-laced person, so I'm pretty proud of myself that I was able to work up the courage to go through with it! I love it, love it, love it, and am so happy with my decision. Mr. Giraffe is happy too and I'm so excited that this is something we could share with each other.

Tattooing your person's name onto your body definitely isn't for everyone. I know a lot of people think it's a seriously crazy idea, and others believe the superstition that it'll cause some sort of break up, but I don't think that way at all. I'm just happy and excited, and I cannot wait for a photo on my wedding day of putting on fancy shoes, right next to the tattoo that will keep Mr. Giraffe with me at all times.

Anybody else get a tattoo right before they're wedding? Besides the awesome Miss Sloth that is.
