Today was rather interesting, for it had both good points and bad.

The bad really came before the good because lets face it living with your parents isn't always easy. Now I love my parents and I have been blessed with exceptionally great ones, but that doesn't mean that it's always peachy. I think the hardest adjustment for me is feeling like I'm a little kid again, like I know its all done in good intention, but I want to feel like I'm a grown-up despite living in my parents house. And its little things that send me over the edge, like telling me what bank I should go to, and what I should or shouldn't wear, and most of the time I let them go but sometimes it just bugs me.

As a result, I ran away for 4 hours today to the mall. I decided the mall is my safe haven because the mall and I can never fight with each other ha ha so its where I will go if I ever need somewhere to go. Brian ended up coming to find me at the bookstore, and we went to dinner at Charcoal Grill. The best part of the day was standing in the parking lot when we were done, cuddling cause it was freezing cold out, and talking about silly and serious things. I even made up an amazing song about Brian using cereal names...though it definitely wasn't as good as Billy and the Mysterio's cereal song (sorry I can't remember the real name). Our parking lot time was just amazing, and it will definitely be one of my favorite memories of Brian and I thus far.

While driving home I was listening to the Still Feels Good CD by Rascal Flatts and the song "Here" came on, and it's the subject of my post because this song is the song that always pops into my head when I think about Brian. So for kicks I thought I'd post the lyrics.

There's a place I've been lookin' for
That took me in and out of buildings
Behind windows, walls and doors
And I thought I found it
Couple times, even settled down
And I'd hang around just long enough
To find my way back out
I know now the place that I was trying to
Was you, right here in front of me

And I wouldn't change a thing
I'd walk right back through the rain
Back to every broken heart
On the day that it was breakin'
And I'd relive all the years
And be thankful for the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here

It's amazing what I let my heart go through
To get me where it got me
In this moment here with you
And it passed me by
God knows how many times
I was so caught up in holding
What I never thought I'd find
I know now, there's a million roads
I had to take
To get me in your arms that way

Repeat Chorus

In a love I never thought I'd get to get to
And if that's the road
God made me take to be with you

Repeat Chorus

And I'd retrieve all the years
And be thankful for all the tears
I've cried with every stumbled step
That led to you and got me here, right here
Oh, baby-Ooo
Oh, got me here

Ok you can all stop gagging now, I'll end the sappiness but I just had to share my great night :)
