Harry Potter Memories

“But from that moment on, Hermione Granger became their friend.  There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.” Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Thank you, J.K. Rowling, for sparking a love affair with reading for my kids, for teaching us about loyalty and friendship, and for the opportunity to experience a literary phenomenon in real time.  It has been pure magic.

The Harry Potter Happy Dance!  Getting a chance to read the next book was a cause for celebration.  Circa 2007

Ascending the “real” Hogwarts staircase last year at Oxford University.  A HUGE thrill for Jonah.

A perfect GryffindorThe lovely Luna Lovegood

Dressed up for Harry Potter 7, part 1, and loving sharing the joy of reading with my kids, and their friends.

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

A million times, thanks, Ms. Rowling.
