Yes, I have fond memories of staying up far past my bedtime reading about Hogwarts and He who must not be named. The adventures that they went on took me to a place where anything could happen and the characters were just real enough that I felt maybe my letter to Hogwarts had been lost in the mail. Summer was spent awaiting the arrival of the next Harry Potter book and then seeing just how quickly I could finish it before passing it off to my sister or my mom. Yes, those were the days. A bit of that magic is lost now but still I will always be a Potter fan. I've been to Universal Studios and walked the streets of Hogsmeade. They really spared no expense and did a wonderful job with Potter World. I still have cravings for the Butterbeer. It simply was delicious! The best I can do to describe it is creme soda with butterscotch flavoring and cream on top.
Last night for the first and last time I dressed up as Hermione Granger. It was fun using things I had around the house to make my outfit. My robes were my graduation robes from High School and I had a Gryffindor shirt I had bought from the theme park. I was quite impressed with how the ensemble came together. This wasn't the first time though that I had dressed up in Harry Potter style.
One Halloween when I was young I was Harry Potter himself. Pretty Great don't you think? :) Yes, although the series is now over it will live on forever in my heart.
Long live Harry Potter, the boy who lived.
