Today was my first day of work. Quick turnaround, I know.
When I got dressed this morning I didn't realize how well my outfit represented my journey to this point in my life. Allow me to explain.
My boots were a Christmas gift from my mom, who, with my dad, has always been my foundation.
My tights are special thermal tights I bought in Ireland while I was studying abroad there, my earrings were a souvenir from my time studying in Italy, and on the way out the door I threw on my favorite scarf from Paris. My white button down was a purchase for my time as a summer intern and the belt is from my favorite thrift store in my Kansas college town.
And my blue dress is brand new, just like this adventure.
With all this life there to comfort me, I went to work.
And it went well (thanks for asking).
