I can clearly remember that old drive-in theater off Forest Lane where my folks took me to see my first Star Wars movie. The experience was kind of something that I would keep with me for a life time. Not because of the swing set or merry go round in front of the silver screen. Nor was it the smell of popcorn, hot dogs and exhaust in the air. It was the movie. The movie that would change movies for the next few decades. For that night I fell in love at a young age with a Princess, Smuggler, Wooke, a Farm boy, and a dark lord.
Young or Old, Star Wars Knows no Boundaries
Now that I am older I am lucky enough to share the same passion for Star Wars with my family. We all have our favorite episodes and characters. Joeli has developed a awesome wooke impression and has now problem sharing what she things about Darth Vader. Jaden and Jaci have a equal love for the Star Wars Saga, both of them lean to the older episodes.
Well this December 18th the force awakens again and has already captured the hearts and minds of millions for Star Wars fans. I am lucky to announce I will be attending the Star Wars press junket. Which will be a chance of a life time, and I am greatful to be included with the other 24 blogger going.
