Why did J and I REALLY elope?
Well, to be honest....
The thought of walking down an aisle in front of dozens (or hundreds) of people staring at me made me want to lock myself in a closet and never, ever come out. I often need to visualize things before they happen. When I would visualize all of those people staring at me, I started to panic inside.
Yes, People, I can blog my life - even the icky life stuff. I can speak in front of hundreds of people. I don't shut up and stop talking when one-on-one, or even in a small group setting. But I couldn't stand the thought of being the center of attention at my own wedding. Deep down inside, I am still incredibly shy and can't stand to have people look at me.
And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is the real reason why I was thrilled we eloped and have never once regretted getting married the way we did.
