Great time of year- blackberries, raspberries and MINT

LOVE this time of year.  Time to gather and enjoy local fruit. We drink peppermint tea in the winter so we have found a local swimming hole to gather mint.  It tastes WAY better than what you buy.  I then dry it and store it in glass jars.

A real treat this year is we have found a raspberry bush or according to Google, wineberries!  Either way it is way cool and something totally different!

Newest ink- MOPAR tattoo coverup

Since I've went to Mopar it has been on my list to get a MOPAR tattoo.  Several weeks ago I decided to cover-up my blue Chevy bowtie, the first tattoo I ever got, which was around 2003.  I loved it when I had it and it symbolized not only my love for Chevy, but especially for my blue 1978 Z/28, "Mean Streak".

Since I like to move forward, I figured it would be best to go ahead and cover the Chevy ink.

I sent my tattoo artist, Dessa Blackthorn, owner of Tattooz by Sassy in Mountain Home, Arkansas a few ideas, mainly centered around my keychains that I have for both of my Mopars.

When I arrived, she already had drawn a design out and I absolutely LOVED it.  If you know me, I hardly ever love ANYTHING, So I was super excited.

Here is what we had before:
