1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory (or many, I don't mind!)that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Sorella - SO many great memories! MIO PADRE!! Running to the MTC cafeteria practically every day for meals. Our vocab study walks on the MTC grounds... Fratello Baker lessons... The walk with S.lla Rhien on our first night in Rome... Rejoicing to see you at 3 month conference. Talking in the car on the way to the airport upon leaving Italy, and realizing how much we've grown and love Italy. Meeting Ontario at the Italian cook-off on campus and finally having our chance to embarass Fratello Lambson! Having FHE at your home and meeting little Gabe - such a cutie! And many more to come, I'm sure! Ti voglio bene!
(thank you for your post, by the way)

I remember playing Anne of Green Gables in your Rexburg house. I remember Vonnie singing "Red, Red Wine" for us. I remember reading the Reader's Digest with you in Gram's bathroom and being frustrated at what a fast reader you were. And of course lots of tea parties-- in and out of the pool!

Oh's so hard to choose.

I remember piling out of the van in the back of the Clarks in Mansfield and everyone running to the back door to greet us-you among them. I remember late nights/early morning talks on the porch in Ohio because we only had two days or we were leaving as soon as my parents woke up. I remember you coming to see us in VA. You in your baggy shirts and LARGE glasses and me in my 2nd hand clothes and retro-90s boy cut. I remember finally getting my license and coming to visit you in Laurel practically every weekend. I remember talking about everything and laughing all the time. I remember being the queens of the dance floor and picking up random boys. I remember being your roomie and the nights where we would wait up for each other with a cup of cocoa and just so excited to tell each other about our days. I remember getting you ready for a mission and playing with Ontario. I remember how much we cried together about our parents and Hyrum. I remember reading out loud to each other out of our favorite books. I remember long walks and crazy adventures. I remember meeting and talking to random people. I remember quoting EVERYTHING like movies, books, and homestar Runner. I remember the awesome joy I felt for you as you opened your call to Italy and how perfect that moment was as the spirit confirmed to my heart that it was THE call for you. I remember watching Bollywood movies and tearing up at the Brittons during A Walk to Remember. I remember the fun we had cleaning the house, listening to Wicked and Billy Joel. I remember shopping and learning how to accessorize. I remember going to dances and how spending two hours getting dressed was the best part...actually...every time we got ready for something was always the best part. I remember the night you kissed Ontario for the first time. The night before your wedding and meeting Sorella Cooper. I remember the night Gabe was born and how beautiful it was to see you hold your first Son in your arms and cradle him as the two of you fell asleep. I can't think of a phase in my life that you aren't a part of.

I remember so many things, Meggan and writing some of these down has made me miss you and realize how much a part of my life you are. I am so grateful to you for being my life long friend. You've brought so much comfort, peace, and complete joy. You've been my link to reality on many occasions and the one thing that broke my seriousness down so-for a minute-we could goof off and let our hair down. You've been my confidence. My hope. My support. Not only do I need you in my life, but I want you in my life. Forever. Always.

I love you doesn't seem adequate, but I do. From the tips of my toes to the very center of the deepest corner of my eternal heart. I'll love you like that on and on and on.

Everything you touch bears the traces of your life. A life full of laughter, joy, family, friends, fun, testimony. A whole life; faithful to what God would do and centered on the Living Christ and God the Father. Your perfect, maybe not in the broad sense as you would argue, but for me.

Thanks Meggan Laurel Anderson Britton for...

...absolutely everything.

One memory!? I have so many! Baking chocolate chip cookies in that small kitchen in Monterey. I think you wanted to make cookies for Zac the way our mom used to make them.
You introducing me to the freedom of flip-flops! I've never been the same... :D
Chillin' in your room and me gawking at your colorful clothing (you may not have noticed the gawking...)
And general good times. We laughed a lot. At what, who knows and who cares?

Dear Brittons,

I remember the 99th ward Christmas party, Ontario was Santa and Meggan was an Elf. Halloween costumes and the tuba. You were both such great sports. Our Ward was better having the two of you as memebers. Your positive attitude and smiles made coming to Church a joy. I miss those days and I will always remember your family. Love Bishop Hammond
