Jordan and I value time spent with each other and our loved ones. I've seen far too many people live a lonely existence as they allow friendships to fizzle with age. We've realized that being proactive in planning special events throughout the year is essential. Life gets busy and unless you really think in advance, date nights or get-togethers with friends become infrequent. Because of this, Jordan and I fill our calendar with parties, day trips, vacations and concerts sometimes six months in advance.
Back in September, our friends mentioned that the Nashville Symphony was putting on a special Christmas production of Home Alone. While I wasn't even thinking about Christmas in September we decided to purchase the tickets and make a double date out of it. I love how, after a busy couple of weeks preparing and traveling for Thanksgiving, we already had a fun night planned to reconnect.
The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is located downtown and we arrived a little early so we could walk around the city. December in Nashville is downright perfect. I haven't had to wear my winter coat yet!
Even though I've seen Home Alone countless times, watching it communally with live music renewed my love for this holiday classic. Laughs were shared during the McCallister rush to the airport, shrieks echoed throughout the hall as Harry and Marv stepped on Christmas ornaments, and happy tears were shed when Kevin and his mother reunited.
I hope they do this again next year because it was such a great experience.
