I'm notorious...

... for wanting to be alone.

I know. That sounds kind of like an oxymoron.

But I love solitude.

I am an introvert.

I know. It seems oxymoronic to have a very public blog and be on Facebook, and be outgoing and friendly, etc., etc.... and to describe myself as an introvert.

But it's true.

When I took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality inventory thing I scored as an introvert. That meant that when I get tired or stressed I want (need) to go home and be by myself. Alone. In solitude.

Some people like to be with people when they get tired or stressed. Not I.

That tells you that this week I am seeking solitude.

Now of course I like being with Sam. And he and I are very much alike in the needing of aloneness.... and we can often (not always) consider 'being alone' as being with just each other. (It's great to be that comfortable in a marriage, isn't it? Would that all marriages would be that way.)

Anyway, I say all that because I want to .... and I can. (It's my blog.)

In closing here are two pictures I took before the wedding (in The Commons area of Bear Valley), and one picture Caroline Carmack took. (I can HARDLY wait to see her pictures .... she was our professional photographer... and oh my, I know they will be GREAT.)

Oh, that last picture (by Caroline) I took from Facebook and couldn't get it any bigger. .... but that will just entice you (and me) more to want to see the rest of the pictures!!!!

My DH is an introvert. Sometimes he just wants to be still and quiet. It's good to be still and quiet together too.

Oh yes, and I can't wait to see Caroline's photographs...notice I said photographs, instead of pictures, because I too know they will be supreme!

Yes, Maria, those photographs will be supreme...... (no pressure, Caroline)

I understand, and I feel like I need that this week. In fact, I took that today. Not a place I should be visiting with work right now, but I had to. :(

Can't wait to see more wedding pictures. :)
