Project didn't automatically open and then opened old version

I loaded up Scrivener this morning and it said it couldn’t find my project, so when I did open recent, I was relieved to see my novel there. When I opened it, it was an old version. I save my novel before I close it ever single time, but I can’t find the newest version. Where would the normal path for just hitting save put it?

I’m trying to not freak out here since many changes were made after the version that scrivener just opened for me.

Found it, crisis averted. Now to back this puppy up again.
