One, I told him I could not imagine living in NYC.
Two, he’s leaving very soon for 4 months of study abroad on the other side of the world.
Three, he knows I’ve been dying to visit Laduree.
Four, I wanted a quiet place away from Chicago where I could take a good picture of us to cherish before he’s gone.
Then he whisked me away on a whirlwind weekend in NYC, all to ourselves (he did have to survive a champagne brunch with my girlfriends from college). And he did good. Lots of fooding of course, jazz at Lincoln Center, Cloisters, hot chocolate at Mariebelle, vocal recital at Carnegie Hall, The Frick Collection, Laduree, The High Line at sunset, going to Redeemer and picking the one service where Tim Keller preached, and then, a frantic early morning flight back to Chicago as we worked on our problem sets and papers on the train to make our afternoon classes.
