I spent the last week wishing I could trade the snow covered streets of Seattle for Holiday Hogsmeade, but since that's outside the realm of possibility I'm getting my act together and sharing some of my favorite shots from my December trip to Universal!
This year my sorority little, Kiran turned 22 and is preparing to graduate from the University of Washington! She's one of my best friends, so I wanted to celebrate her birthday and gradation in a really special way - we had met after my big, Taylor recruited her to Sigma Kappa and quickly bonded over our love for Harry Potter so a weekend at Universal Studios felt like the perfect thing. We both donned our house scarves (she's a clear Slytherin, and I've always identified most with Ravenclaw) and drank butterbeer from morning to night. I'm so grateful for our time spent together, and the fact that we were able to travel together to a place we both love so much! The magic was so alive for the holidays ?
Now I just have to hope that Kiran doesn't leave me to move back to Washington DC anytime soon. These past 4 years we've had as Big and Little are everything I hope for when joining a sorority and I can't wait to share this friendship for the rest of our lives ?
You can shop my Hogwarts student-inspired look below, as well as some of the items I couldn't leave the parks without!
Items from the park aren't able to be linked via LTK, but can be shopped at the Universal site below:
