This past weekend I was lucky enough to see an advanced screening of the final Harry Potter movie. It was bittersweet to say the least. I tried to explain to the bf why I teared up (or lets face it, flat out balled my eyes out) my way through most of the movie but even then I felt like I was too close to it to properly get my point across.

I know this all sounds crazy. It’s JUST a series of movies and books but I very literally grew up with these characters. The first book was released when I was 9 and the last when I was 19. That’s as pretty close to the ages of the characters as you can get.
