Hello and happy weekend friends! I’ve been preoccupied over the past few days, so I’m sorry for the late links! We’ve been in Harry Potter’s wizard world having read the books together over the past months and then we started a movie marathon, watching all the films in a row.
I read the first book when it came out in the late 90s and loved it but then purposefully reserved the remaining books and movies for when I had kids of my own. My sister thought I was crazy to wait asking why I never read them when they were released and why I never saw the movies. I sensed they were special but wanted to live the adventure when I had children of my own, and I’m so glad I did!
Now I finally get the hype, what a great series! We finished the last movie yesterday and now my husband insists on being called “Lord VoldeMatt” by our kids or they will get tickled “to death”. So who among you has visited Hogwarts at Universal Studios in Florida? I’d love to hear your reviews, we’re thinking of making the trip this year.
On a completely different note, I’ve noticed there’s a movement and a feeling out there in the blogosphere, and several are reflecting on it with their thoughtful posts on how it has all changed – many of us missing the “good old days” when blogging was for the enjoyment of it and not for the attention/likes/accolades. Do you sense a change too?
