Harry Potter: It All Ends in 2 Hours

Less than 2 hours from now I will be sitting in a movie theater, surrounded by devoted fans, friends, and fellow Harry Potter fanatics. We'll all hold our breath as the theme we've all grown to know and love filters through the speakers, as the words 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2' light up the screen, and as the beginning of the last 10 years begins.

I know I've been bombarding you with Harry Potter related posts, but I can't help it. Harry Potter is such a fundamental part of who I am. I was 11 when I picked up the first book. I'm now 23 and about to witness the end of an era. The end of one of the most incredible series I have ever known.

It's been a pleasure and an honor to not only know Harry, Ron, and Hermione, but to have grown up with them.

Below is another video that gave me chills, that gave me a short, visual representation of some of my most beloved memories.

I'm off now, for the very first of the last times, to head home.

"The stories we love best, do live in us forever. Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home." - J.K. Rowling 
When I come back, I may or may not vlog. We'll see just how emotional I am by the time the credits roll and my childhood truly ends. I'll leave you, like I did in my last Harry Potter post, with this quote:
"No story lives unless someone wants to listen." - J.K. Rowling 
Thank you Jo, for telling us such a phenomenal story.

I'm really sad to see this series come to it's movie-in-theater end, but the great thing is we can always come back to the books and movies. I think that's what's so great about books, those moments that in real life we share with family,friends, and other great people, we can only remember, in books it's a moment we can always come back to, and people we can always re-visit.

I'm really excited to here what you think of the movie! I'm not a die hard HP fan but I do love the books and movies. My friends were lucky enough to snag two tickets and then five mintues later they remembered the rest of us but the tickets were already sold out. :) Have a magical time, pun intened!

I hate you. >_> Okay not really. lol. But I am jealous of all the people seeing the last Harry Potter tonight. I shamefully haven't read the books yet, though I do plan to. I have, however, seen all the movies thus far and loved them! Have fun tonight! :D

I spent all day Wednesday and Thursday rewatching all the movies and playing all the trivia/board games in preparation. I absolutely bawled my eyes out for most of the movie. So amazing!
