I met Aubrey for lunch today. As to be expected, it was awkward as we learn to navigate these uncharted waters of our new relationship. We talked about inconsequential stuff; school, work, Christmas shopping.
After we left the restaurant, she headed to our house to visit her dog and I headed up to Austin to visit a friend and go to IKEA. I plugged in my new phone, turned on Pandora, and chose the Sara Bareilles channel, where I heard a song I had never heard before. Heartbreaking words had me grateful I wasn’t wearing my contacts, but frantically wiping at my eyes to keep my mascara from smearing.
While I could write a long drawn out blog post, I could never say it better than this song could. So I’ll just leave it at this.
