Pssst…look, we hate to tell you this, but we were talking to your partner the other day, and it kind of sounds like the romance is gone. We know, the job, the chores, it’s easy to let it slip away, you start to take each other for granted.
Don’t worry, we’ve got a great idea. Here’s what you’re going to do:
Tell your partner to get off work early this Wednesday and meet you at Wallingford Playfield at around 5:30 pm. Meantime, you’re going to head over to the Wallingford Farmer’s Market at Wallingford Center (3 – 6 pm) and grab a loaf of bread from Tall Grass Bakery, some good cheese from one of the local dairies and maybe some fruit.
Next, you’re going to head over to City Cellars wine shop, you’re going to show them your cheese and ask them to suggest a good pairing. Then, you’ll hustle over to Wallingford playfield, where you’ll set out a blanket and some glasses.
After the two of you have enjoyed your wine and cheese, laughed at the kids playing on the grass and unwound a bit, you’re going to head up to Wallingford Art Walk (6 – 9 pm), where you’ll stroll from shop to shop taking in the paintings, sculptures, photos and crafts. You’ll laugh and goof, striking the poses you see in the pictures, giggling at what some people consider “art” and then finally stumble upon something you both really like. On a whim, you’ll buy it so you can have a memento of this evening.
You will have made reservervations for 7:30 or 8:00 at Joule, Tilth, Sutra, Cantinetta, Art of the Table or Elemental, where you will savor a long, slow meal made by a local chef. You will reminisce about the early days and ask questions about each other’s lives now. You’ll both spontaneously apologize for that thing you keep doing that gets on the other one’s nerves and promise to try to stop. You’ll get a little bit teary, reach across the table to hold hands and say you should do this more often.
Then you will go home and make sweet love.
No problem, glad we could help.
