Relaxing Movie Night Musts

I have SO much going on in life right now. Between finishing the school year, moving, and thinking about my new teaching job, it can be difficult to get my brain to quiet down. Something my husband and I have both needed is something to distract us from the craziness. A move night or two has definitely helped!

My favorite movies are inspirational ones. I love stories where you really connect with and feel for the characters. I like walking away from a movie feeling refreshed, and that my mind was broadened. 
Setting the scene for a movie night makes it much more enjoyable. A cozy set up with blankets on the couch, lights dimmed low, and the pillows just right makes it nice. 
It can be challenging, but I also like to make sure we put our phones away and just enjoy the moment. 
A great snack is also a must. Popcorn is a classic, but I'm a total sweet-tooth. Muddy buddies or chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven hit the spot.
During the summer Daniel and I traditionally watch a lot of movies. We take turns picking, and last year we tried to watch a lot of award-winning movies. We certainly ended up seeing a lot of great films we probably wouldn't have chosen otherwise. We use our local library to check out films, it's a great way to save money and see something new!
Another great resource for movies is Pure Flix. Pure Flix is a Christian film company with an online database. They are offering a free one month trial, check it out here!
What are your movie night musts? Do you know any inspirational movies I should check out? Thanks for stopping by!
