solitude.26.

its late. its 1225{am}. im tired. im emotional. because im {tired}. and because of the incredibly long week i just had. tim {fiance} and i are finally on the decline of chaotic scheduling. he took {vacation} so he could be a support and companion for my week in southern california, while also trying to take some time for himself. and i {seriously} am so happy he did. our week included premarital counseling, photographing two sessions, celebrating a weeks worth of wedding festivities via role of a bridesmaid, visiting my parents and siblings, reconnecting with a friend from korea and driving back and forth all over california. now one week later, i am trying to hide from the world so i can enjoy my {26th} birthday in solitude for {one} day. i like people. i {love} my job. i like talking. but i love {alone} time.

interesting {fact}. due to unfortunate past schedules. this is my {first} birthday – out of the three years of knowing him – that i have spent it with tim. so my birthday wish includes the following: me. tim. alone. solitude.
i’ll return to this crazy life on the {29th}.
goodnight.
