#SipandRead: The Tales of Beedle the Bard


Title: The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Author: J.K. Rowling

Sipping: Talenti chocolate gelato (Okay, so I'm not actually sipping it, but it is in a mug!)

Mug: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, from Universal Orlando

Magic is in the air. First of all, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be released in hardcover on July 31st--which is Harry Potter's birthday.

As if that's not enough, my family is about to embark on a road trip to Orlando, Florida. And--you guessed it--we're going to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.

I went when the attraction first opened several years ago--that's when I got my mug. But back then, there was only Hogwarts castle and Hogsmeade village. Now, Diagon Alley is opened for business. And you can catch a ride on the Hogwarts Express to take you there!

In case you can't tell, I'm a little excited in anticipation of our trip. What better way to celebrate than read wizarding fairy tales while eating delicious gelato?
