Welcome to Time Warp Tuesday sponsored by Jenn at Juggling Life.  We are posting pictures we have around our homes and telling the stories behind them.
This week I am posting two pictures.  My twins, Maggie and Zac wanted to get tattoos when they turned 18.  Then they decided they should wait until they were 19 so they wouldn't be too cliched plus they were still deciding what they wanted to do.  It was going to be a twin thing, they knew that. By that time they had been separated by the entire country for 4 months at their colleges and during winter break they got their ink.

They had each other's initials with an "&" placed close to their hearts.

I am not a fan of tattoos, never wanted my kids to get them, but how could I help but be touched by their choice?

Then for Christmas this year, Maggie found this ornament for them to share.

Awww, it's beautiful that they are so close.

Like you, not a huge tat fan, but that is really sweet -- and the ornament, too!

As an only child, who is married to an only child, (I also have an only child), this post makes me so jealous!! They are very lucky.

I adore it.

Who knew I would come to appreciate tattoos? In moderation, of course.

as someone with one sibling whom I'm not close to, this is great!
