About two weeks before that tragedy, I declared her my nemesis. (Very VERY poor timing on my part. I apologized and recanted.)
About a month or so before that my cousin Wonderful Wendy (aka Rama), did a photo shoot of Stephanie and her family and got to know them a little.
Which is why Wendy is now famous and featured on THE FREAKIN' TODAY SHOW.
(While I am infamous.)
(But I did try to redeem myself by holding an auction. So I'm not all bad.)
Now watch this clip to see my AWESOME FAMOUS COUSIN in action.
And then go donate some money to The Nielsons.
And if you want, send me a copy of the receipt and I'll send YOU a Japanese treat!
Because it turns out Stephanie WAS just as good and crafty and kind and patient and loving and in love as her blog led us to believe.
And THAT is something worth supporting.
