Happy 10th Anniversary Twilight!
It seems unreal that Twilight hit bookshelves 10 years ago. Feels like just the other day I swooning over Edward and vicariously living in Forks, WA and La Push beach.
You have heard this may times in the last 10 years and you'll continue to as the years pass. Twilight was a blessing in disguise as a book. Never would I have imagined that a young adult fiction story would change my life forever. Sounds crazy, but Twilight affected the course my life would take from the moment I read it. I would not be where I am today without having read Twilight.
It wasn't just about a book, it was about the love story, the impact of the story, the people I sought out after reading this story that understood the withdrawal, the friends that became life long friends, the creation of this site, the many Twilight inspired trips I have taken all over this country, what I read since Twilight, the list can go on and on. It doesn't sound like much, but when you are new to a state where you know no one and all your friends and family are thousands of miles away and all you think about is why, then Twilight happens and you begin to meet people locally and even in other states and you go from knowing no one, to having this large Twilight family of friends that make getting up everyday more tolerable and 10 years later, those friends are still there and will continue to be there. I want someone to argue with me that Twilight did not change my life.
Once Upon a Twilight is here because of Twilight, just like the tag line says "A Book Began The Bond of A Lifetime". This blog exist thanks to Twilight and my Twilight friends that encouraged me to start a blog so that I could share my Twilight trips and share my thoughts on whatever book I was reading. So if you are a fan of this site, then thank Twilight because if not Once Upon a Twilight would have never existed. And I know for a fact many of the authors and books you love today exist because of Twilight and how they were also affected in some way!
I'm sharing this quote that a friend (which Twilight brought us together) posted today:
You don't have to like the books, but respect the fact that through this book series, lives were changed, touched, and affected. - LaurenSo join me today in celebrating these 10 years!!!
