dear sarah:  today you were born, 25 years ago. you have made such a huge impact on my life, one that i will never forget. i know you're going to mad that i put some of these pictures up, but guess what, they were some of the happiest times of my life when we were crazy companions taking lithuania by storm. you taught me about hard work. you taught me how to laugh at myself. you made me pee my pants more times that i can probably remember. some of the hardest times i've ever laughed in my life were with you. i'll never forget your wool sweater, stefe, maps, culture day, baptisms, teaching, hearing horrible noises outside when we were trying to pray, rimi, our landlord, bus rides, running for the house to be on time, lime popsicles and sprite, geishas, cili kaimes, musli, smoked cheese and summer sausages, cherry juice in wine glasses, comp study, planning, fighting over who gets to answer the phone, rasa, aleksandra, jolita, ingrida, aurika, team klaipeda, striped socks, BE's, yellow face, walking to the bathroom with you at 2 a.m. because you were scared, 70 flights of stairs, piggy back over the puddle, the cow in the forest, making lasagna together, the 4th of july (100 contacts baby), running by the sea, feeling the most free we've ever felt, making baptism programs, the best christmas ever, MY LOVE, you getting caught in a bus door, homeless, and so many more. i could honestly go on and on. happy birthday to one of my very best friends. you taught me how to live. as tave myliu, begalo. ir aisku, as esu tavo seimininka, VISADA, kiek viena diena.
