If you've not heard about NieNie and her family, you must go to the links below.
Stephanie Nielson writes a blog that has managed to capture the hearts of almost the entire blogging world. She shines a light on everything that is good and uplifting about being a woman, wife, and mother-- all while keeping the reality that there is no such thing as perfection in this world. In August, 2008, she and her husband were in a plane crashed that left them both in critical condition... Much to the surprise of some, (but not to most of us) the blogging world has risen up as a force for good, to help lift and sustain this amazing woman and her family while they battle through recover; trying to show for them even just a faction of the gift that NieNie has given through her writing. There have been articles about her on major news networks across the country and all over the net. She truly is an inspiration for all that is good in this world, and what I, personally, wish to be.

She and her family, I believe, are also vegetarians, and before her accident she was also posting a veggie cuisine blog... I have decided I love it just about as much as I love her. This is what I am going to have for lunch today, thanks to NieNie.
