Can you believe it's been a whole year since the opening ceremony of London 2012? I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around it. I remember watching that ceremony like it was yesterday -- I was curled up on the couch, trying not to cry, and flailing at my parents because "THIS IS THE BEST PART!" every five minutes.
In honor of the first anniversary, I decided to do my first re-watch of the ceremony... and I was NOT expecting to get as emotional as I did. Though, in my defense, I cried at the same things I did last year. And it probably didn't help that I just got a "one year on" thank-you email from my old London 2012 Ceremonies volunteer coordinator in the middle of the athlete procession. (So. Many. Feelings.)
So what would be a more appropriate commemorative post than my favorite moments from the London 2012 Opening Ceremony?
Well, that was equal parts fun and depressing.
