Before we moved (Oh, hey. We moved!) from our last apartment, we hosted a movie night for our neighbors. We had the perfect location, as our first floor apartment backed up to a nice grass walk way & rock wall. We set up speakers & a projector on our patio & projected The Incredibles on to a sheet we hung on the rock wall. It was a fun night and made us wish we would have done a movie night way earlier & often! We invited our church family to come out & knocked on neighbors doors to invite them over. We popped some popcorn, picked up some old school Little Debbie's snacks & stocked up on water. We set up our Tiki torches, laid out some pillows & blankets and waited for the sun to set. It was cozy, intimate and just fun.
Leave it to Soph, to take a ridiculously cute picture when you just ask her to say cheese.
Once the blankets were laid out, the snacks ready and the sun had set, we gathered with friends for the start of the movie! It was actually so relaxing to be laying out in the grass, steps from our back door, with loved ones for a good movie! Often "back yard" movie nights in the neighborhood are so crowded that relaxing isn't usually the go-to word you'd use to describe them. They're tons of fun and a great way to spend an evening, but again not necessarily relaxing. This night was relaxing and just perfect.
We can't wait to host another outdoor movie night at our new place!!
