Today I Perfected My Patronus

At midnight on the release eve of every Harry Potter movie, I don a shirt for the special occasion and sneak through the night to the largest and best theater possible. I wear my HP pride with pride. This last week, Harry hit the U.S. with force. The weekend prior to his arrival I gathered with a few of my favorite friends, to watch the sixth movie in preparation for the seventh and to design this year’s shirt.

During an obsessive conversation about patronus‘ that evening we decided to each take Facebook’s long and antiquated ‘what is your Patronus?’ test. Mine turned out to be a hedgehog.

Bravery is your strong suit, and you are a kind creature to all, though your spiney exterior may make others think otherwise. You are proud of the strange parts of you that make you different!

I’ve been playing around with ideas for next movie’s shirt. This won’t make the cut, but I thought I should share the nerd power. Hedgehogs unite! We might not be the strongest member of Dumbledore’s Army, but there’s a chance we’re the cutest.

Oh P to the S – This just reminder-ed me of one of my favorite films from Animation History in college, Hedgehog in the Fog. Can you handle the sweetness?

About last night. 🦌💛 Crawling home on all fours after celebrating at the epic Puppy Par-tay my brother and sister-in-law put on for my dog nephew, Milo tonight. It was everything and more, complete with a bone-shaped swimming pool. #dreamtheimpawssibledream 🤘#livewithnoregrets We otter go exploring more rivers. 😍
#lifeachievementunlocked A Mama said there’d be days like this😍
Totally alone in the Natural History Museum’s Hall of Mammals for hours! Hashtag Blessed. It’s 1 AM. Do you know where your mini gummi bears are? 
#fairgame #latenightinthestudio #goodbyeoctober We’re celebrating today. I opened my eyes to Matt  crowing, “Amber! Wake up. They made it!” We have been following the inspiring pilgrimage of my mom @incredimombo & sister @prilliegirl_shakazoozoo via text & @instagram for weeks. They set out to trek across Spain a month and a half ago. This morning they walked their 500th mile and crossed into Santiago. Having read a lot about their journey before they set out to do it, I felt concerned at their determination. The Camino is not easy. It requires walking 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week. You have to carry everything you need on your back. The toll is physical, mental & spiritual. Many prepared and experienced hikers do not make it to the end of the journey the first or second time they attempt it. ☀️ So we’re dreaming impossible dreams and celebrating too. It would seem today is a good day to set out to do the impossible. When we moved to Utah I was sure I’d been too spoiled by my childhood on the ocean and my twenties in Brooklyn, to ever find anything to love in the desert. I fully planned on dying of boredom. I don’t know what I’ll do when we outgrow this little Wasatch apartment of ours! Watching the Sun kiss the mountains goodnight from our tiny balcony is beyond description. This picture doesn’t begin to do it justice. Home again.
