Why I went to Forks...

I didn't go to see these things~ (although I enjoyed them)

This is the reason I went to Forks~

I'm having a hard time putting into words how I feel about these women. They came into my life at a time I really needed them. I'm not sure I even recognized that I needed them but someone knew I did.

This trip was about so much more than just Twilight. True, Twilight is what brought us together but this trip was about celebrating friendship and love and laughter.

I'm going to refer back to the song that inspired the title of my blog to put into words my feelings-

"I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn and we are lead to those who help us most to grow, if we let them and we help them in return.....So much of me is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart and now whatever way our stories end I know you have re-written mine by being my friend..... Because I knew you, I have been changed for good."

(I stole a few of these pictures from my uber talented friends that were with me. I'm not even sure where I got them all. I do know I stole a couple from Georgia and Britten. I also think there is one of Amy's in there. Thanks gals!)

That is what I keep thinking myself Amy. I am so lucky to be able to know all of these fabulous women!

Thanks for posting all of these great updates.

P.S. I am glad some one got a shot of me and Jacob Black! I was worried that I would have photographic evidence. LOL!

Yes! This is exactly why we came to Forks! "Word".

Hahha...I worried about giving credit to pictures too, but then I downloaded so many from our group account I forgot who a lot of them came from. Oops! Ah, well....they were all for sharing anyway. =)

It was so nice to read your blog about the trip. And that's the thing it's about the friendships that came about as a result of the books, it's lead to so much more!
