harry potter world: part 1

Let me start by saying this:
There are a few things in this world that I am so passionate about, that I find it hard to talk about them to other people. I feel like I can't express how much I love something or how much it's a part of me. So I like to talk about those things, but at the same time I don't, because I feel like people don't understand.
Harry Potter is one of them. This was a complete dream come true. And I can't find the right words to tell you how I felt when I was there.

I would also like to say this:
I cry like once a year. It's a pretty big deal if I can get a couple of tears out.

Here was my very first view of Hogsmeade:
I began to weep.
Seriously. Tears were streaming down my face. Every time I saw something new, I would just lose it. Seeing this place come to life was unreal. Unreal, I tell you. I got so emotional.
Kind of embarrassing really; I couldn't talk because I was crying for the first few hours we were there.

My expectations for this place were incredibly high,
but this was even better than I imagined it would be.

"You know that feeling in your heart? When your heart is just pounding, like it's actually outside your ribs. Exposed, vulnerable, but wonderful and awful, and heartsick, and alive, all at the same time?"

i believe that was the quote we were thinking of.
that is how i feel about the wizarding world.
