This entry is from September of 2011, and though two years have passed since its composition, my penchant for Harry Potter has only grown. Today’s Throwback Thursday is a celebration of the things that stick with us.
I came to the series late in my life, and it’s one I return to over and over again. My sister and Dad are solely responsible for showing me what this book series could be.
I have yet to visit the park in Florida, but the ‘Return to Hogwarts’ mentioned in the following entry was a similar effort, only in miniature.
Check out Luna Lovegood! Isn’t she fabulous?
Along with Harry, there are a number of things that have stuck with me; things that never fail to take me to a happy place – whether by memory or in action. Walking in the woods, a pink bear my grandpa won for me at a state fair when I wasn’t quite 3, pens fit for writing, my parents’ high school yearbooks, the Beatles’ Rubber Soul album, Anne of Green Gables, my Mom’s rice christine, and fuzzy caterpillars. Just a few, but plenty to fill me up.
What has stood the test of time for you? How are you transported to your happy place? Any Potter fans out there??
