So, it’s been awhile since my last post. Boo- and just like this Halloween term intended to frighten young children (or skittish adults), it’s scary that its been so long.
In my time away from social media of all kinds, I’ve attended a beautiful “shower” themed bridal shower, partied at a wild bachelorette party and visited Harry Potter Land at Universal!
Every weekend seems so event-filled and exciting. Between all the wedding events that Tim and I have been attending and my early morning workouts (I joined a gym, woop woop!), I have been neglecting getting enough rest.
The day before I visited Harry and Hogwarts I only got a few hours of sleep due to a late-night cup of coffee punch that was too delicious to resist. Which, looking back, was really bad timing because the next day I spent 5 hours in the open, breathing in the same air as 187594747 tourists.
So, now I’m sick. Boo- and this is scary too because it’s fall, my fav season, and I plan to enjoy every minute of the slightly cooler weather that is rare here. BUT- all of this has inspired me to do something truly crazy and wonderful.
After visiting HP Land and riding the most amazing ride EVER- the Forbidden Journey- I curled up on my couch today to rest with a cup of peppermint mocha coffee and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. My Goal= To read the whole series before the first part of the 7th movie premieres November 19.
It’s a tall order but, I think I can do it. My Other Goal= To blog about J.K. Rowling’s writing style and literary devices that I have not previously paid attention to because of my excitement and youth. 😀 I think it’ll really be a challenge for me to dissect these books that I grew up with and figure out what makes them great.
Let’s see if I’m up for the challenge! Join me, and let’s enjoy the magic of Harry Potter together!
