Continuing with my week of Christmas ornament memories…
When couples get together she shows him her favorite movies, he shows her his favorite movies and then they go to the movies on dates to find new favorite movies together, right? I’ve always thought it was so unique that Mike and I experienced an old movie for the first time together. Neither of us had seen “It’s A Wonderful Life” and so one cold, winter evening we settled in together on the couch by the fireplace in our first house together and watched this classic film. We absolutely fell in love with it.
A few days later we were at the video rental store picking out some movies with the kids and we came across this ornament. It just felt like it was meant to be and so it became our ornament for that year to commemorate the first year both of us had seen “It’s A Wonderful Life” for the first time.
This ornament represents some of my favorite years, the kids were little and Christmas was so young, fresh, and exciting for all of us.
