When a Commitment Phobe Goes to a Tattoo Parlor

photo (62)“I could see the irony of it: a commitment phobe at a tattoo parlor.”

So begins my guest post at  Little Did She Know, a blog run by the talented Cara Strickland on singleness, friendship, and the de(tales) of our faith.

Now, for the first time in public, I’m sharing the tale of my tattoo, inspired by the new book Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them. It’s one of heartbreak and homesickness and learning to belong wherever you are.

I invite you to read the story here.

  1. I just LOVED this, Erin.

    Is this the post you felt you had revealed too much, too awkwardly?

    If so, I didn’t see that or any other “off” moments in it. Only strong footholds to climb better up into life abundant.
