I've been wanting to post this forever, but had to finish that 30 days of me challenge.
Earlier this month, Keith & I got tattoos to commemorate his mom. She loved elephants - collected them all over her house. So it felt natural to honour her with one:

Mine, on my upper back. It says "for life's not a paragraph and death, i think, is no parenthesis" by e.e. cummings.

Keith's, upper arm. The characters say "elephant" and "DJW" were her initials.
(I am so lucky to have a best friend whose fiance is a tattoo artist; he did these for minimal cost.)

Day 27- Why are you doing this 30 day challenge
I wanted to see if I could post every day for 30 days. Fail.

Day 28- A picture of you last year and now, how have you changed since then?
Left: Keith & I at my graduation in June. Probably at my heaviest.

Right: Literally today, 73 pounds lighter. What a difference!
Day 29- In this past month, what have you learned
I've learned that Keith actually cares where we get married and is willing to trade in his dream of an open bar to do so. WTF?

Day 30- Your favorite song.
Uhh. Don't have one overall, but I do like Michael Buble's "Hollywood", Pink's "Raise your glass" & The Ready Set "Love like woe" currently.

#30daysofme - #21, #22, #23, #24, #25, #26

So clearly I suck at this posting everyday thing. Damnit. Here's the last 6 days, to catch up.

Day 21- A picture of something that makes you happy
Rainy fall days are awesome. I love this season.

Day 22- What makes you different from everyone else
Absolutely nothing. Seriously. I am unique, just like everyone else. Thanks Barney. That was a valuable life lesson.

Day 23- Something you crave for a lot
Snuggles. Lots and lots of snuggles. There. Now you know our secret. I'm gonna have to kill you. Sorry.
Day 24- A letter to your parents
Dear Mom:
It was lovely to see you this weekend. Can we go to The Magic Flute at the Four Seasons Performing Arts in Toronto this winter?
Love you

Dear Dad:
Are you in Mexico for the winter yet? I can never keep track.
Love you

Day 25- What I would find in your bag
Currently, you would find a pink wallet, a nearly empty case of dentyne intense gum, covergirl lip gloss with moisturizer, a black elastic, scented hand cream, a requisition for blood work, my hospital bracelet from surgery this summer, a little black lighter, keith's paystub, a couple of receipts & my old bus pass stuff. When I go out, I just add my phone, a pen, cigarettes & keys. And if I'm going to school, I add my voice recorder and a notebook.

Day 26- What you think about your friends
I think they're sooper. :)

#30daysofme - #17, #18, #19

Day 17- Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why

I think I'd like to switch lives with my cat. Honestly. He has it so good: Gets to lie around looking insanely cute, doors open and close for him on command, sleeps a lot, doesn't have to worry about paying rent or bills. Yeah. Cats have it all, man.

Day 18- Plans/dreams/goals you have

Have a Bernese Mountain dog. I want to graduate University and have a job I enjoy afterwards. Get married the way we dream about. Be able to buy a decent-sized house. Keep my friends. Get pregnant easily and carry to term. Be able to financially work part-time while I raise my kids. Just a regular, decent life. That's all I want.

Day 19- Nicknames you have; why do you have them

I actually have no nicknames to speak of. Yeah, I'm lame. It's okay.
