A Walk and an Outfit

 

  Good afternoon, ladies! Another week is in full swing. It's been a little while since I've given you more than a brief life update, so here goes!
   Lately, I've been babysitting for one family regularly at least once a week and on many weeks I have one or even two other childcare jobs. Last week I babysat at least a bit each day from Monday - Friday! I also have a once-a-week cleaning job of my own and one that I help my mom with whenever it works out. In addition to having jobs, there are things like teaching children's church, attending Bible study, blogging, volunteering at the pregnancy care center, practicing photography....life is full! Transitioning into the life of an adult has been a little bit stressful for me at times, I admit. All the same, it's exciting, and I enjoy the feeling of earning my own money and learning skills that will be useful for the rest of my life. :)


   Two weekends ago, my parents and I went for a walk on a trail by a local slough. "Slough" sounds like such an unattractive word, but it really is a pretty area. With the fog hanging low over us, it seemed like a walk on the moors. 
  For this weekend jaunt, I wore a fairly casual outfit featuring my new "pedal pusher" jeans. Tucked into my boots, one would never know that they aren't' full length pants! My ruffled blouse, camisole, and cardigan made for a feminine top to my outfit. As it turned out, I got a little cold with only my cardigan for warmth! :) You can see the wind in the picture...excuse my wild bangs. Haha!

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: 
and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
~Matthew 11:28-30

  1. Hi Page!
    I'm right there with you on the "transitioning into life as an adult" being stressful. :) Never forget that you're not alone on that journey.
    Keep up the excellent work.
