The long, hectic week may have added some stress; but it was all worth it, as I was off for a short trip by myself for some much needed solitude. I am a bit of an introvert by nature and there are times when I really just need some time by myself. A big part of me feels guilty for feeling this way. But thankfully after 35 years of marriage Carl understands and knows that it's just who I am.
To make it easier for Carl, I've taken four of the dogs with me, who have been great traveling companions. Once our trip began, and I found that rhythm of the open road, I could feel myself start to relax -- Of course having good music to listen to helps and added to a sense of freedom that I needed and hadn’t felt in awhile.
Our destination was beautiful, eastern Tennessee.
Its been a good day for all of us!
