Tag! I'm it... Thanks Gwen

I was tagged & here's how it works...
Do you have a story? One that makes you say "Wow," and it makes you feel good to reflect on it, to remember it, and to possibly share it? I do! I thought we might like sharing them, so here is one of mine:


I started to like Anthon as more than a friend during the summer of 2001, when he held my hand on our stake's pioneer treck. I was hoping it would blossom into a summer romance... I couldn't have been more wrong! Not only did I not get to see him for the rest of the summer, I didn't even talk to him until school started & even then it was like we were back to square one (just friends- even though I had a major crush on him)! I decided to ask him to MORP (girls ask guys dance) in November 2001 & we had a great time, but at the end of the night, he hugged me goodbye & RAN into his house! It was exactly one month later when I was driving back to school for practice & it started to snow... It was inspirational! Looking around at the "winter wonderland" I became even more twitter-pated & said to myself, "I'm going to kiss Anthon! Tonight, in the snow, it'll be perfect... NO BUTS ABOUT IT!" After practice, I sat in the hallway waiting for him to come out of the locker room, then I walked casually with him out to the parking lot. I chickened out at first- We said goodbye, I walked to my car & he started walking to his. Then I just stopped, turned around, ran toward him, spun him around, & kissed him... The BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE!!!! Six years later, here we are! This behavior is completely opposite of my normal personality, I promise... But I thank heaven it happened!!

Ok, Now I tag: Aleia, Heather, & Katie!! Let's hear some stories that define you!

We are glad you were so brave to make the first step. You know my family, too shy to make a move. Allison asked Gerald out. So thank goodness for you girls to make the first move on my crazy brothers. We are glad you are part of our family. You are so good for Anthon.
