magic is so magical…

It was an idea that came to us while layin’ around just shootin’ the breeze. The best ideas always unfold that way it seems. Yes! A Harry Potter dinner sounds perfect…and the thrifting, planning, scheming began. We spent hours looking at cool old junk in thrift stores, planned a menu together, found out dry ice is the most exciting thing EVER, talked endlessly about Harry Potter authenticity! It was one of the most fun nights/events I have had in a long time. I kept thinking to myself, “Why, oh why don’t I do more of this stuff with my kids?”. I decided these are the things, the stuff for pure fun, no holiday, no birthday, just because, are the real memory makers. We must do MORE!
