I didn't really grow up with Harry Potter. I just decided to read all 7 books one summer and once I started, I couldn't put it down. I went through the series so fast that it was insane. It's just so GOOD. I'd read and read before bedtime to the point where I'd start having Harry Potter dreams...lol. The books are so much better than the movies, and I always hope that people will take the time to read them, especially if they enjoy the films, because there is so much more to appreciate in the books. There is a lot more internal struggles for Harry, especially during the last book, that no one watching the movie would even really know about...and a lot about Dumbledore, too.
One thing that always impresses me and blows my mind is when authors are able to imagine and create an entire imaginary world with so much detail that it seems like it could be real. J.K. Rowling's imagination is so amazing to have been able to create and include all of the aspects that she does within the wizarding world and community. I feel the same way about Tolkien and Middle Earth. It's amazing how much thought and creativity goes into these magnificent worlds and stories.

Gryffindor house has a lot of the big characters in it: Harry, Ron and the other Weasleys, Hermione, Neville, Professor McGonagall...even Dumbledore was a Gryffindor. Since my ring is symbolic of Harry, I chose to wear the Gryffindor colors. But this is only the first of four outfits! I will be creating an outfit based on the colors of each of the four Hogwarts houses, so be on the lookout for which house will be next! :)
