Then I stopped at a little Italian restaurant I'd forgotten about. You have a place like this in your town, you know you do: pictures of Sinatra and local sports heroes, flat screen TVs on the walls. And a bar! (Don't tell anyone, but I had a beer.) I enjoyed my individual deep dish pizza and then walked back along Michigan Avenue and Millennium Park. I wish all summer could be this temperate, and all lunches could be this relaxing.
Here's a brief explanation of the Challenge: "Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world."
If you play along, let me know.
