My Very Potter Birthday

17 Apr

My birthday was a few weeks ago and I’m very fortunate to have a family who embraces my Potterheadedness. I got pottered from all sides.

The first was my husband. He picked up the mail on his way home one night and when I went to go through it later, I found an envelope addressed to me, living in ‘The Bedroom Next to the Stairs.’ It was perfect and sealed with a green wax seal. Inside was a Hogwarts acceptance letter and a flier for the local Pottercon. We’re going! It was the coolest way to let me know and I am looking forward to it a lot.

The second Harry themed gift was also from my husband. He made me a Harry Potter game. I kid you not! It’s a mix between Clue and a tile-based haunting game we played with some friends which I cannot remember the name of for the life of me. (This also means I can’t find it on Google so it must not exist.) We’ve playtested it a few times and I think we’ve worked out the kinks. It might be time to get some other friends involved.

The third present was from my parents. They got me a Hogwarts Alumni shirt which I’m in love with. I need a good place/reason to wear it soon because I’m dying to. I wore it to the library but it was for a board meeting and I don’t think my fellow board members appreciated it properly.

The final gift was unintentionally Potter-related. I asked my parents for a small bookshelf that I’m using for all my Potter books as well as the other YA series my husband and I own. I’ve been told it ended up quite shrine-like.

I’m excited to keep filling this one up with illustrated editions and future Fantastic Beasts screenplays. It’s going to be awesome.

Happy Potter Birthday to me!

Until next time, write on.

    Amazing!!! And I’m SO jealous you get to go to the Pottercon! I remember reading something on your blog recently about Ann Arbor. I used to live there (Go Blue!) but now I’m far away in England so not a chance of getting to Detroit for that! Have so much fun, I can’t wait to hear all about it.

      Pottercon is expanding but I’m not sure it’s jumped across the pond yet! I actually went to college in Indiana and my husband’s a Spartan haha. Happy reading!
