Grateful, Gratitude, Italy, Marriage, New Year, Regret, Travel -

My husband and I have been talking about going to Italy for about 2 years now. I've been there 3 times already, but my husband hasn't. Last year, we just couldn't find the time between events and the business.

This year, I decided was the year we were definitely going. I didn't want yet another year to go by with saying, "well, next year we will go"...because you know what happens, next year happens again...  I found cheap flights to Italy so I'm going to book them, OK"?...his response..."OK"!! And boom! About 30 seconds later, the flights were booked!

Fukitt Clothing | DC Tattoo Expo 2018

Last weekend we kicked off our 2018 pop up shop season at the DC Tattoo Convention. I believe this was our 5th time at this show and it's always a great way to start off the year! Filled with friends we haven't seen in a few months, yet seemed like yesterday, was so good to see them all.

So many things changed with people and businesses, but everyone was still the same! As usual, we got there, unloaded and set up, and then checked into our room. Upgraded to a huge suite for free, I knew this was going to be a great weekend!

So, here's a little bit of what has gone on...

Happy New Year 2016 from Fükitt Clothing
I seem to always resort to this quote during this time of the year because it feels like the perfect reminder for the proper mindset to start the new year. It's funny how sometimes the most simple change in perspective can really alter your way of thinking.

We all tend to wish we can have a "do-over" so that we can either 1) erase some regrets or 2) have more time to accomplish our goals...and then life can be perfect, right? But we can't go back and start a new beginning... People sabotage themselves with regret from their mistakes or with the overwhelming frustration from their limited amount of time. We are haunted by the "what-ifs" of our past decisions.
