Well... the belly button ring lasted all of about one year before I decided it wasn't really my style, and up until now I never really wanted a tattoo. My husband believes they are absolutely addictive (he would know, he has five and wants many more), but I still think maybe I could just get one that isn't super visible and be satisfied.
I have REALLY wanted "argghh" (for the Pirates of course) on the inside of my index finger, but I realized there isn't much you can do to hide that and as someone that is the "face" of a school district I'd hate to be sticking my hand out to shake the hand of a senator or something and have him/her distracted by my finger.

|I found the "you are my sunshine" type art from Minted via Pinterest then just added some sunshine type rays.|
So why a sunshine and those words (which will have to be a little darker I guess to show up on my skin)?
Because of my Mema Kay that died April 27, 2009 from metastatic lung cancer that spread from her lungs to her brain and bones.

And because of my sweet baby boy Sawyer. Now, I sing the same song to him, to help him go to sleep at night or calm him down when he's fussy, even though doing it usually brings tears to my eyes. And because he is indeed my sunshine.
Now... where to put it?
(yes, I know, that's what she said)
I'm leaning toward my foot so I can cover it when I want, even though I'd love to have it on my wrist. I do NOT want it on the small of my back, rib-cage or side. I wouldn't mind it on my shoulder either, but I really have no idea.
I also need to get up the courage to do it.. that is another issue entirely.
