“My husband [Charly Bauer] and I have a 4-year-old and 2-year-old, but we make it a point to go on a date every week. Even if we have to force ourselves. Even if we can’t go out, we’ll sit in front of our fireplace and drink wine.

We like to keep it simple and haven’t done anything really spectacular or romantic. I love the nights that we see a movie at the Wexner Center and go to the Flatiron [Bar & Diner downtown]. The food is amazing and there’s a great atmosphere, great wine. It’s a historical setting and history is always romantic … trying to connect with someone in front of you and connect with people who have come and gone.

And the thing about the Wexner Center’s movies is that I don’t have to look into it at all. I know that when I go there, even if I don’t know anything about the movies that they’re showing, they will always lead to great conversation afterward.”
