tonight's drive home was quite beautiful, most of the drive is high above the city on a ridge overlooking everything. the moon is completely full and there was lightning flashing randomly throughout the sky. barely any cars on the road at all until i got closer to downtown. normally i'm terrified of lightning, but tonight there was something beautiful about it. i've noticed that being... well in love brings a certain amount of contentedness (is that a word??) to a girl... like today, there i was sitting on cement in a dress, on 9th avenue during rush hour in the extreme heat just watching the cars go by (there are a lot of BMWs in this city... i guess that's why nobody seemed impressed to see 2 little girls driving one) but it was all good... all the time i get more and more sure of knowing that this is forever, and the idea of it, being with Darren makes me smile... when we talk about marriage and the future, i get excited.
