About two months ago, Josh and I decided to celebrate our second anniversary by getting tattoos! He had always wanted to get an anchor once he got married, and I really did love the idea, so away we went! (Fu’s was our shop of choice.  If you live in Charlotte and want some work done, check it out!)
