This past weekend we went away for a final getaway weekend before the school season starts up. We stayed at the Marriott Lincolnshire Resort and brought the boy to see the matinee “Aladdin” at their theater there. The rest of the time was spent swimming in the pool and me sketching and reading poolside.
The day we left we decided to take a drive out to Woodstock for lunch and to do some “treasure hunting” as we like to call it at the local antique stores. My son has picked up on this pastime and we like to look for little treasures we can draw, etc. Woodstock, IL is a cute old town where they filmed the movie “Groundhog Day.”
We found a great place for lunch in the square called Expressly Leslie that had a great variety of Middle Eastern Vegetarian food. The bonus for me was a large majority of that was also gluten-free vegan. I felt like a kid in a candy store with all my choices. I will definitely be finding an excuse to go back there again.
