I made this tote bag for my cousin. She just went on a lifelong dream vacation to New Zealand (home of Middle Earth filming) and her boyfriend proposed in a very Lord of the Rings themed way. I figured I would be on-brand and make something showing off a quote that she associates with the story.
Last weekend we stayed in Providence for the night for a viewing of a live orchestra playing the soundtrack to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban with the movie. It was so cool!
We have a tradition of offsetting our observation of Valentine's Day by a week or so to avoid the crowds, so this was the main event this year. It would have been nice to also go ice skating (a standard component of Shmalentine's Day) because the rink is right outside The Graduate, where we stayed, but it was way too cold!
