When: July 23 // Weather: hot and humid // Real life: celebrating our wedding anniversary in Bloomington
Last week I told you about Part 1 of the anniversary weekend road trip to Bloomington, and here’s Part 2! Sunday was our actual anniversary, so rather than a fancy romantic dinner, we had a lovely hipster brunch. I’d heard good things about Feast from multiple people, and it didn’t disappoint. The avocado toast rocked my world, and that’s saying something, because I eat a lot of avocado toast. Considering my busy drinking schedule the day before, I decided to opt out of the mimosa, but the coffee was fantastic.
The morning was super gloomy, but after we ate, we went to walk around campus and…the sun came out for us! That’s the magic of IU. I think we wandered more than 3 miles just enjoying the day, visiting our old favorite spots, and looking at what’s changed since we were students. It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long, but a whole decade has passed since we graduated. Back in my day (imagine I’m saying that with no teeth, glass of prune juice in hand), we couldn’t Uber back to our dorms, and we used AOL instant messenger instead of Snapchat.
Sigh. When did I get so old? But at least I dress better now.
