Nie Nie Day
I am a little behind in posting this, but if you read blogs at all, I'm sure you've already heard about the sweet Nielson family. However, in case you haven't heard, Stephanie and Christian (the parents of four adorable children) were in a private plan crash last week and are currently recovering from critical injuries. Stephanie is the author of the darling and popular blog: The Nie Nie Dialogues, which I just discovered after hearing about their tragic accident. I don't know the Nielsons personally and I only spent a short time going through her blog archive but it didn't take long for me to discover what an amazing person she is! She has a strong testimony of the gospel and is not afraid to share it, she loves being a wife and mother, she adores her husband and children and she finds so much beauty in her everyday life. I left her blog feeling really inspired. Hence the reason for this post. Gabrielle Blair (aka Design Mom) initiated a whole slew of silent auctions which are going on in the blog world throughout the month of September. All proceeds from the auctions will go directly to the Nielson family to help them with their medical expenses on their long road to recovery. If you want to participate, you can check out the entire list of auctions here.
