Harry Potter Week

I have been in love with the wizarding world since the summer of 2000 when I first decided on jump on the Potter bandwagon after the release of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I jumped on board and haven't looked back. Not only do I love the characters, but I love the entire world that Rowling created.

In preparation of the the HP7pt2, I've been re-watching all the movies this week. It has been a really sweet journey to watch the cast grow and change with each film and for each film to get darker and darker. I am so very excited to see the culmination of a story that captivated a generation... it will be bittersweet to close this chapter.


I used to be able to do the midnight movie releases, but dare I say that I'm too old for that now? I just can't stay awake and it isn't worth the mixed up schedule the next day... so yea, I'm too old. We're planning on going to one of the early shows this weekend which will hopefully be a little less crowded and a little easier on our schedule. 

So, did you see HP7pt2 last night? Are you going to see it this weekend? Any special rituals you did to celebrate?

One thing is for sure: I'm going to need some kleenex to get through this emotional conclusion.

I have you to thank for getting me to jump on the HP bandwagon. I went to the midnight showing last night - It was great (I didn't cry as bad as I thought I would), but now I'm so so sad that it's all over...
