I have one tattoo. I got it to remember a time when I went camping with my yet-to-be husband, Matt Cole. We were at a campsite next to a lake. In the middle of the lake, on a perfectly round island stood a beautiful tree. The branches rose up and around a straight trunk creating a circle of leaves. We swam over to the island and half way there I was a little tired so I rolled over on my back to float and rest.
You know when you put your ears in the water how quiet it is an how interesting the sensation is? It was a clear night and you could see all the stars. It was beautiful. I saw four shooting stars. I was like, "Whoa, this is amazing!" When I reached the island, Matt and I embraced under the tree. He felt like he was part of me and I felt like I was part of the world, in a little globe of my own.
