Alone Time

With the beautiful weather {that seems to have disappeared}, I've been taking little walks during my lunch hour.  The above picture was taken with my iPhone last week.  I love getting out there and enjoying some alone time in the middle of the day.  Sometimes life just gets too overwhelming and it's important to make time for yourself.  I'm trying to do that more and more.  Usually during my lunch hour, I eat my sandwich and fruit cup, then work on homework for the rest of the hour.  Exciting, huh?  But now, I try to take a nice little walk during lunch.  I clocked it the other day, it's exactly a half mile one direction.  So, it's nice to know that my little walks take me a mile.  I'm thinking of exploring the next street over too and making that distance and alone time a little longer. 

I figure since I haven't been running hardly at all, that I should at least get a nice walk in during lunch.  I can't wait for December 17th.  This semester will be over and I'll get my life back.  :)

You'll get through it! Taking walks mid-day certainly helps you find a little peace when things are crazy though. Good luck!

That is GORGEOUS! That is a great idea to walk during your lunch! A lot of times the alone-ness plus fresh air does me a lot of good!!

I loved getting to see you at the store, too. (You are so pretty!! I can't believe you said you had no makeup on because I honestly thought...She is just the prettiest girl!!) I did NOT think you were crazy!! I actually thought you probably thought that I was the crazy one...seeing as how I was practically running people over with my stroller!!! I was on a mission to get my 6 things and get out of there! ha!

i wish i could make myself do something active every lunch break! it's a nice break to the day and of course burning the cals doesn't hurt when i'm stuck at a desk all day.

That looks like a pleasant place to walk! Arkansas weather has certainly been enjoyable lately.

Oh, I'm so glad that you are able to find some alone time during this busy time of year, ESPECIALLY during the week day. You have been through quite a lot this year! I'm praying for you as you finish your semester.
