Where do your feet go?

This past week I’ve been taking pictures of where my feet go and posting them on my Instagram.  The guest speaker at our church was talking about where your feet go, God goes with you and had mentioned asking people at the church he used to preach at to take photos of where there feet went that week. So off I went to take photos of where my feet went. Unspoken challenge accepted.

The feet photos that day were really great. Taken with my real camera. Out in nature while doing this photo shoot for the blog. After that, they were crappy cell phone photos mostly at or around work and at the grocery store. I really thought my feet were going to go somewhere really cool or do something really fun.

Reality is, God is going with me to work and to the grocery store. Wah. Wah. Wah. I’m sure even He’s bored with that. But in the mundane, everyday places life takes us, it’s good to know God goes with us. Sometimes work is hard. Sometimes the grocery store is boring. Sometimes we go to the grocery store after work and want to run all the slow pokes in front of us down with our grocery cart. God is still with us. I think that was the point of this exercise. Not necessarily to go out and find great adventures for our feet to go on, but to know God is there in the here and now. In what we’re really doing every day. There’s comfort in knowing that.

 

On to the outfit. I found this crushed velvet tunic top at Village Merchants consignment shop down in Portland when I went a few weeks ago with my sister and nieces and son. The shoes are super cute denim bow sandals I got a TJ Maxx a few years ago. The white stretchy pants I just got at Kohl’s recently. If they’d stop getting dirty when I traipse about in the woods in them, I’d wear them more often. They are that comfortable. Flowers from the Gresham Saturday Farmers Market.

Yes. I walked out on a fallen log across a small creek at some point while taking photos. In wedge sandals.

Where will your feet take you this week? Just remeber, where you’re going, God goes with you. Even in the mundane boring-ness of everyday life.

Fall time is Poncho time!

I’m seeing so many ponchos for sale in the stores and online right now. It totally reminded me it’s time to drag out my poncho before the weather gets too cold for wearing them. Fall time is definitely poncho time. Not sure why spring isn’t also a big poncho wearing season. Perhaps if they just brought ponchos out in spring colors it could be a thing. Let’s make that happen come spring!

 

Gray, white and black poncho, jeans, gray bow boots, cat ear sunglasses + Kate Spade handbag

We took these photos last week when I was just starting to have a pain flare-up at the base of my spine. At some point I sat down on the ground and was so stiff I wondered if I was going to be able to get up again. Ha. I did. The pain was only about at a five out of ten, so I was still smiling through the pain at that point. A few hours later and I wouldn’t even have been able to do the photo shoot. Such is my life now…

I hope you all are enjoying the fall weather. It has started to rain more around here and those pretty fall leaves are getting pummeled off the trees. Sad. Winter is coming. Boo. In the meantime, here’s to ponchos!
