A weekly blog from the Family & Consumer Sciences Department

One of the greatest predictors of your relationship’s success is your ability to turn
towards each other, constantly developing your bond by making an effort every day
to reach out to your partner and accept their bids for emotional connection. Here
are some great ideas for moments to share with your partner:
Even if it’s just for one night, sleeping out under the stars with only the company
of each other will remind you of what’s most important – your relationship.
Pack a couple sandwiches, a bottle of wine, and a blanket and head to the nearest
park. Even if it’s just around the corner from your house, the change of scenery will
be a refreshing variation from your weekly routine.
Whether it’s a scenic weekend hike to a waterfall, a hilltop viewpoint or some other
specific destination, or just an evening stroll through a favorite neighborhood, there’s
something about taking a walk together that is guaranteed to bring you closer.
Great music sounds even better when you have the opportunity to hear it outside in
the open air. Discover new music together, creating a lasting shared memory. Many
parks, wineries, and even zoos now host outdoor concerts.
In many places, the return of summer also means the return of the local farmers markets.
Go early to get the best selection of local fruit, vegetables, and other produce.
While you’re there, sample local honey, preserves, and baked goods, and check out
all the different crafts.
