Last night, Stacey, Melissa, and my sil Ashley went to Y Mountain to show our support for Nie Nie, as she was hiking the Y on the one year anniversary of the plane accident and had invited anyone to come.

I didn't hike the Y, as being 8 months pregnant makes things like basic movement a little tough. We waited at the bottom of the trailhead to meet her once she came down.

It was so neat to see everyone who is so often featured on her blog in person- the kids, Jimmy the dog, and of course Mr. Nielson and Nie.

I must say, Nie Nie is fabulous. She took time to give hugs to eveyone in attendance, as well as talk to each person. She was so warm and kind that it's no wonder that so many people love her- what's not to love?

If you have somehow been under a rock for the past year and don't know Nie Nie, click here. She's fabulous.

That is very cool. She is a true inspiration and I would have loved to have had the chance to tell her that in person!

Wow that's amazing.
You're looking great by the way. Hope you're feeling as good as is possible being 8 months preggers at in the summertime! =)

I'm glad we went and that we waited. You could just feel her spirit around her. I was telling Tyson about it and I got a little emotional. I know he thinks I'm silly, but I just couldn't explain to him why we went. It all seemed so trite. Then she posted the picture of her the next day and I showed him and I told him the story (better, this time) and he got it. She is amazing.
