Let's start with a cup of French-pressed coffee in bed. Then, let's walk to the local bakery and weekly Farmer's Market. Here's what we find:Freshly baked pastries and a pot of Earl Grey on the patio:Take off in a top-down convertible, across the Prairie, to an Art Fair at a local winery:Buy a bottle of local wine (it's Illinois, so not too exciting, but hey we support our local small businesses!).
A beautiful weathered church along the way. (Actually I think someone lives there; a dog was peering out the window and barking at me when I stopped to take the picture.)
Cocktails on the patio, then, later, fried green tomatoes, fresh tomatoes with basil and mozarella, Ciabatta bread all washed down by some sparkling Prosecco.
Big Ten Football. We don't care who wins; we've degrees from both!
