Thank you so much for buying my 2011 calendar. I was honored to see people enjoying it and wanting to display it in their homes.This is the letter I wrote inside the calendars, and I wanted to share it with you this wonderful Sunday before Christmas: Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for having my wall calendar in your home. I have decided to create and dedicate this calendar to all those who have experienced tragedy or loss of hope in life; for anyone who may feel loneliness or sadness. I want you to know, these experiences can also be a blessing in disguise. My life is filled with happiness and peace, and this calendar reminds me of that. I have included some personal traditions and family events to share with you this upcoming year. Hopefully you will too. Kisses, Nie. Merry Christmas to you and yours: Watch my favorite Christmas story here (and if you listen, you will know why I love it so. Seriously, So Wise. At A Glance The anonymous creator, brains and author behind Tiffany/Amber/Megan/Nicole shares why she started Seriously, So Blessed, the highly popular Mormon mommy blog spoof.
She speaks candidly about how she responds to Mormon culture as an author and as a member, and why humor is such a powerful tool for helping us look at ourselves in an honest light.

The Brass Petal. I can't believe I won. I mean, i can, but i can't. What a secret to keep, and i'm a bad self-secret keeper. I can keep others, sure. But i have no secrets of my own because, i'm the most transparent person in the world. and i like to talk. a lot. obviously.
So keeping this GOOD of a secret was sooooooooooo hard you have no idea. AND BOY am I so excited about that i could wee in my little vintage house dress. And I love how Ian's house turned out and kinda don't understand why its not mine. But back to Design Star. I remember waking up that morning and thinking, 'ok so today is the day that i get told by the Design Star judges whether I will get my own TV series. When Vern announced it, I was shocked. Seriously, so blessed! You guys, I do NOT say this lightly but am seriously ready to swear and cry and just take off my boots in dispair!
