Spring break, fresh ink

It’s spring break. The weather is sunny but not warm. The winter that will not end continues but I think back to spring break two years ago. In a carpe diem attempt I flew to Arizona to meet my friends for a girls weekend in Sedona. Jeffrey and I also took a quick trip to Chicago for a weekend without kids. I knew I needed it but at the time I had no idea how much. I haven’t been well enough to travel since.

As I’m nearing the two year cancerversary for leukemia (3 years for breast cancer) I’m am starting to separate myself from the identity of being a sick person.

As part of my healing I got a tattoo. I had a consult for a bigger piece just a week before I was diagnosed. I was finally able to go in to have this smaller piece done. I have big plans for more but need to make sure my body can heal this one properly. It’s done in hot pink ink fading to white.
