  2. I love 21, specifically the winery part ;)
    It has been years since I’ve been in a relationship, but my ex and I used to window shop pretty much every Saturday. We’d get warm drinks, pop into stores, and buy used books. Plus all the walking tuckered us out, which was a perfect prep for a shared afternoon snooze.

    • Window shopping, drinks, and a book store sound like the perfect ingredients for a lovely night! But why wait for a man to come around when you have girlfriends? Grab your nearest & dearest and make a day of it this weekend! After all, the point isn’t to go on a date, per se, as it is to add variety to your life! XOXO
