Life Lately: Dogs, Tattoos, and Trips.

My mind has been tired lately.
 Emotionally and Physically exhausted. It's literally just a blob in my head.
All I want to do during the day is sleep and then once night comes I just want
to curl up next to my husband and sleep some more. Maybe I've just been doing too
much lately and haven't been able to get the rest that I need to get. 

My Birthday was June 18th. 
It was a wonderful day, spent with wonderful people. I was so spoiled all day. 
The next day, I got a call that my dog was sick. My puppy that I have had since I
got to pick her out for my 12th birthday. And a few hours later, she was gone. I held
my best friend in my arms as she left this world. 2 dogs in 8 months. I was emotionally
distraught, weak, and tired. 

I miss our wedding day. 
Did this happen to any of you whom are already married? I'm having such a hard time
knowing that our Wedding Day had come and gone so quickly, July 19th will be 3 months
married. All I want to do is cry when I hear songs from our wedding day and I find myself
scrolling quickly past wedding photos that friends have posted of their days or weddings
they have attended in the last month or so. I'm pretty sentimental and I get super emotionally
attached to things. But this was the BEST DAY of our lives so can you blame me? 

We went to Arizona and back in 15 hours.
Speedracer drives trucks. And sometimes he has to make far drives to pickups/drop offs.
Monday, he called me around 11:30 and said he needed to head out to Tempe, Arizona
and wanted me to come with him. So we piled in and took the long 6 hour drive straight 
out of our 75 degree weather into 115 weather. We got to Arizona around 7:30, had some
minor setbacks, grabbed dinner and was back on the road at 10pm. We didn't get home until
5am. But it was so worth it. I love these moments with my Speedracer. We talk about life,
adventures we hope to go on, how excited we are for our honeymoon in August, and we just
chase the sun along the long roads of Arizona. (and then the next day my hubby had to do a
6 hour drive to Las Vegas, and didn't get home until 9am Wednesday).

I got my 6th Tattoo.
But I still have 5 on my body! waaaat? For those of you whom have been around a while
you know that I had a tattoo on my foot. A cute little butterfly and my favorite quote that read,
"Do not fear death, but rather the unlived life." I got it around 2 years ago. And for whatever
reason the ink just didn't stick, just like it didn't stick to the butterfly on my hip. Both were my 
first 2 tattoos and both in which I loved. But I was tired of staring at a faded tattoo. And so, I 
made an appointment with my tattoo artist (the guy whom has done my last 2) and told him
I wanted it covered. And we did just that. We sat down and I told him of the next 3 tattoos I 
hoped to get and we thought this would be a perfect way to not only achieve 1 of the tattoos I've
been wanting, but a way to cover up my foot. And Lets just say, I am obsessed. Meet Ronnie!!

And those are just some of the things that have been going on in my life as of late. 
Some good, Some bad...but at the end of the day they are the things that are making my life
ready for the next chapter in my life. From Tattoos and Future being adventurous
with my husband. I love the feeling of doing things that are making ME and MY SOUL happy.
But, that's for another post. but really, it's coming in like 3 days. be prepared! 

Time to get ready for our 4th of July Weekend.
What do you have planned for this festive weekend?

Kick off your boots, Grab a cold beer, and Stay a While.
