A Twilight Decade.
A full decade has passed since a young stay at home mom woke up, on the day that her kids first began their swimming lessons; a fading dream chased her mind.
A dream about a beautiful boy with a secret, and a girl sharing it with him in the middle of a sunny meadow.
A decade later, we all know her name: Mrs. (or HRH) Stephenie Meyer. She’s no longer a stay at home mom- she’s the mother of a phenomenon.
A decade later, we have four and a half books, a novella, three graphic novels, and five movies. Millions of fans, of family, of people whose lives changed since that glorious First Sight.
I fell in love quickly and devastatingly. I never was the one to be so completely devoted, so whole heartedly cherishing. And now I know every quote, every line. Every change from books to movies. Every forgotten detail of what does Charlie’s dining table made out of. (It’s oak, by the way.)
A decade, can you believe that?
Try to remember where you were a decade ago. That is a long time, isn’t it?
And in this decade, oh, how things have changed.
My life did, too.
Stephenie made me believe again. She made me remember why was it that reading was my refuge, my happy place, if you would. I shut the first book and opened it again right away, knowing that from that moment on, I am in love.
And for you, my friends, my big Twilight family, remember to always be positive about three things: first, we are together, and we’re stronger than ever. Second, love.
And finally, the third: We are the forever fandom, and we’re never, ever going down.
Here’s for many more decades of our unconditional, irrevocable love.
