49: Dear Friends ( aka Twilight converts), | I hope that maybe in the next 10 years or so, we might meet again. This next time, it will probably be under much different circumstances. Perhaps it is marriage, the arrival of kids, or a 6-figure salary... the future is uncertain... But, there is one thing I know for sure; we will pick up right where each of our stories diverged, and take comfort in conversations that have never really ended, only temporarily paused. I know we'll have much to share with each other, and I can't wait to hear the stories. Until we meet again, in another city, at a different dinner table.. I hope to see the same 3 people there. Love, Cristina
