Nie Nie Day

When I have tons of things better to do, I tend to surf around the blog world and read about complete strangers lives. I love it. A few months ago I stumbled onto this blog, and felt an instant connection with this mom. Part of it was her awesome design sense, and part the fact that her boys are named Oliver and Nicholas (two names Rob and I already had picked out for our future children). So, intrigued, I went back and quickly fell in love with her entire life. She is nothing short of inspirational- from having kids young, to loving her husband, to living the gospel, and doing it all while looking fabulous. When I found out about the crash, I kept going back at first to check her and her husbands progress, and then delved into her archives. And her beautiful life has touched mine. At a time when I'm not sure what's next besides staying at home with my son (what do you do all day?) I now have a focus and am reminded of what is really important. And despite this tragedy Stephanie and her husband Christian have to bear, I know that someday soon they'll be home with their children, continuing their beautiful life.


Is this not one of the most beautiful pictures you have ever seen? It is Stephanie Nielsen with her youngest Nicholas. (I stole it off her blog)
