Hey babes, happy Friday! Today’s post is a “life lately” type of post. I know I’m not so great at sharing personal details of my life with you all, and I want to try and improve. So, I thought I’d tell you about the most important thing in my life, and the story behind my newest tattoo! Which, if you didn’t know about, then head over to my IG and follow along for my Insta Stories!
Family is Everything
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to realize how important my family is to me. I was definitely that teenager who took her parents for granted, but now as an adult, I can’t imagine what I would have done without them. They’re definitely the most important thing in my life! It’s funny to think back on all the mistakes I’ve made and say to myself “I should have listened to my parents.” #SaysNoTeenagerEVER. But seriously though, it’s so true! I think my parents could tell I was the type who needed to make her own mistakes in order to learn and grow, so I’m lucky in that aspect. The older I get though, the more I rely on and respect their insight and opinion. Life is tough and we tend to feel alone as we go through it. We feel like no one could possibly understand what we’re feeling. But there are people who have had similar experiences, and I feel really lucky that I’ve matured in a way that’s allowing me to respect my parents and family in a new way.
Most Important People in My Life
Now, there is NO WAY that I’d ever be able to list all the people out who mean a lot to me. This post is really about my family, as they’ve been on my mind a lot lately. On Monday I started a tattoo with Matthew at The Little Tattoo Shoppe in NE Portland that I’ve been envisioning for a really long time. It’s a motorcycle that my dad used to have, and I’m going to be adding two flowers to it. The motorcycle represents my dad, and the two flowers are for my mom and brother! They are going to be the December birth flower (narcissus) since both their birthdays are in December. So with that in mind, I just wanted to share a few quick things about my fam and why they’re the most important people in my life!
Mom – my mom is definitely the rock of the family. She keeps everyone together. She’s always putting everyone else before herself.
Dad – even though I look like my mom, personality wise, I’m definitely more like my dad. Hard working, funny, and a little quiet (like me), he’s the person I go to for advice.
Bro – I used to think my little brother and I were total opposites. As I’ve gotten older though, I’ve realized we’re actually pretty similar. That’s probably why we got along so well as kids and fought like crazy as teens LOL.
But Brittany, what about Eihab?!
Ok, I def can’t end this without saying something about my other half! There’s more to come in a separate post about marriage and all that jazz, but I just want to give a shout out to Eihab. Thanks for always being there for me no matter what, putting up with my crazy, and encouraging me to be the best version of myself every day. I love you boo!
Thanks for reading my sappy post babes <3 There are so many more people I’d love to mention, but I’d literally be here for decades LOL. What I really have been trying to say is THANK YOU to my family. Thank you for supporting, exploring, laughing, and crying with me. And thank you to all the loved ones who continue to show me what it means to have a healthy marriage. I’m so grateful to have such amazing couples and parents in my life to look up to!
