Lunch with Liz, Fountain at the Art Institute
Yesterday, Liz and I went out for a lunch near the fountain by the Art Institute. We were able to sit in the same area where I proposed marriage, which is always nice.
I like these lunches, as I always tend to follow the same pattern. I get nervous and worried about time, when we first set off. I normally eat lunch at my desk, and taking an actual full lunch feels a little odd to me.
But when we arrive at the fountain and we settle in, I forget about the workday and all its demands. I relax a bit, and the trees and the water take over.
I’ve said it before: this is a great little spot, and I’m always surprised there aren’t more people here during lunch hours. Come by and have a sandwich, read a book, or just people watch for a bit.
