Day 28: Brunch and Bonding

I love brunch. I love it so much, I blogged about it 2 years ago for the Slice of Life Challenge. Today I went to brunch with a friend and I was thinking on the way home about how much I love brunch, but then was thinking that maybe it’s not brunch I love, but the conversation that comes with brunch. I think it’s different than lunch or dinner.

Hang in there with me for a second while I try to find the words… it’s like, getting breakfast or brunch with someone requires a certain amount of familiarity. I think it’s more intimate, more personal than the other meals. Drinking coffee and catching up as a certain quality to it that makes the conversation flow and feels more homey.

So in addition to the food being delicious, catching up with my friend was even better. I love it when the universe puts you in a place to meet new people that fill a tiny whole that you didn’t even know you had; to laugh, to cry, to commiserate, to encourage, and everything in between. It’s rare to find those people, especially at work, I’ve been blessed in abundance with meeting people at work that I’d have brunch with any day of the week 🙂

  1. Brunch definitely deserves its own slice. I lived far north in Chicago for a couple years, not far from Leona’s in Rogers Park, right along the lake. That was the only Leona’s that served brunch, I was disappointed to learn later. Best I ever had. And you’re right, talking is good too. But the food…haha
