I opened it up to find two tickets to the Cleveland Orchestra Christmas Concert at Severance Hall on December 23! Three years ago to the day, on December 23, 2008, Nate asked me to marry him in Severance Hall after the Christmas Concert. What a wonderful way to celebrate our Engagiversary this year!
I had mentioned to him a few days ago that I saw they were doing a concert this year on the 23rd. He ooo-ed and awww-ed and said to forget all about it...that I should pretend I never discovered it. When I asked him if he already had tickets, he said no. When I asked him if he would remember to buy the tickets without me reminding him, he also said no, which presented a bit of a problem. So, he changed his mind and then told me to forget about the tickets, but then to remember only long enough to remind him to get them, and then I should forget again. Oh my! Needless to say, he remembered...and I never really forgot :-) Shhh
Severance Hall is absolutely beautiful, inside and out! In fact, I had thought about having some of our wedding pictures taken there because it isn't too far from the church we got married in. But, they charge quite a hefty fee for renting out the space for a photo session so that didn't end up happening.
Here's a little taste of the music we'll be hearing that night!
