in life we all need people around us to 'anchor' ourselves - otherwise we can drift away without realizing - here's some cute 'anchors' that have me settled tightly!


personalized beer - how cute!

YES - how fabulous to walk on cobblestones with this? - can you imagine if you have a house at the shore with this anchor in your driveway - too cute!


how cute for a shore BBQ - HAD to slip this in

'sink or swim together' ~ love this idea!
lets vote Butterflies 4ct ring for me or these tatts?!?!


Fun Fact: i've always had a love affair with an "anchor" - i've wanted a tattoo of one and seem to always drift to jewelry and other things that have anchors - partly i think b/c i grew up on a boat - before the "shore house" we use to sleep on our boat every weekend ever since i was born - so the whole 'nautical' life runs through my veins ..

above is a tat i got drawn up - it's an anchor with Buddha meditating on a lotus flower with the Om sign in the middle of Buddha's belly - i want to have a few other artists draw it up so it's PERFECT - something to remind me to be grounded, at peace, and live in the light .. -- i REALLY want it on the back of my heel bone, but i was advised since that's where your foot creases when you walk, all the lines would end up blowing out - so next best spot inside of my right ankle ..

Weekend Update:  umm FUN - Joe and I tried out EVERY single new bar in my area - the best tho was Longshots for 1 reason: our mixologist Kim, um love her! - i would just tell her i want a "fun martini" and off she'd do her magic! - so much fun - and she didn't even give me the 'stragnge look' when i order celery when i'm drinking - BONUS - (what's so odd about eatting celery while drinking, i figure it'll off set some calories and well i love celery in the summer!) - We also went out on my neighbors boat fishing, and OMG i'm so sorry i didn't put in our boat, i miss it so, but all my neighbors have open invitations for us, so it works !!
