Since we have been at a standstill for moving forward with IVF, I find myself in funks more and more often. But yesterday, a good friend offered something that really brightened my day and made me feel like I can look to the future with more positivity and hope. My tattoo artist (yes, I have a lot of them, see pics below) texted me yesterday to say that he and his girlfriend have been talking a lot about how to help us out and then offered to throw us a fundraiser at his shop and art studio! He said they have been throwing ideas around for weeks and are thinking of BBQ and auction!
I was completely blown away by such a kind gesture and am excited to feel like I am actually doing something to help move us towards our goal. Although people do read my public blog and we have gotten quite a few donations, they have tapered off, so this feels like just the thing to give us a boost. We don't have a ton of friends in the area but I am hopeful that some of our out of town friends will make the trip AND my tattoo artist has offered to pass out fliers and promote the fundraiser on his FB page (he has 800+ followers)!
