I'm a Lucky Chickie!

Lookie! Lookie! Lookie what I got in the mail today! My super wonderful friend Melanie sent me this oh-so-special surprise today. I swear, she is always doing the sweetest things for me and sure knows how to make me feel loved. And that wasn't all she sent me! She also sent me this toe ring expressing the same sentiment.

Let me explain why it means so much to me to get this jewelry from Melanie, besides the fact that it is so cute and such a wonderful surprise. Several years ago she took me down to a tattoo shop in Laguna Beach and we turned my idea for a tattoo into a sketch and the next thing I knew it was on my ankle. It's a cross, with a heart in the middle and angel wings for the horizontal arms of the cross, with a little burst of light from behind. I'll try to post a picture of it sometime. I wanted to make sure that I always had love, hope and faith with me. Sometimes it's a little weak, especially lately, but it's always with me and it's a great visual reminder for me to focus on what is really important.

Thanks Melanie! (It's reasons like this that I would never, ever post one of those unflattering pictures of you!)
