Branded…For Life!

A tattoo says a lot about you! Years ago (in a land long ago and far far away) B came home with a new tattoo that spoke volumes. I was forever branded on his back! Yes, you can cover a tattoo but it never works out well. You can check out his other shoulder for proof of that (damn her…she’ll forever be a thorn in my side)!
He decided, without being prompted, to “brand” himself MINE! It meant a lot to me then and it still means a lot to me today. This “brand” has lasted for 10 years. Our relationship has survived this long as well. In today’s world, that’s something to be proud of! It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s always been worth it.Β 
I’m branded as well with a big fat B on my mid back. I wear my brand proudly and I’m happy to call him mine! Life isn’t always easy, but the daily reminders of how wonderful it is are worth the struggles!
So are you branded? Are you proud of your brand or do you wish you could cover it up? Wear your brand with pride! We do!
