One of My Favorite Things
We brought Steven into the fold, and we all became addicted. We read the books as soon as they were released. Taylor would read it all in one sitting, while Steven and I would listen to it on audio while traveling. We fell in love with Harry, Ron and Hermione. I consider Dumbledore to be a moral compass in my life. I wept at the end of Prisoner of Azkaban, and seriously fell apart when it was all over after book 7.
In addition to reading the books, we all see the movies together. We go the first day it comes out, and go to the same theatre. It's probably one of my favorite family traditions that we have.
We went again, today, to see Harry Potter 7, Part One. We're all a bit older, but it doesn't matter. It's still a magical experience for all of us. And, as much as I look forward to the final movie in June, I'm going to be crushed when it's over.
