My brother Steve nick-named me "Cubby" when I was born
because I looked like a little cub bear.
It was appropriate to eat my birthday breakfast at Cubby's in Provo.

I am 36 years old (on June 27th), and the day was the best!
I woke up and hiked the Y in the early morning; it was so beautiful;
and moving my body and feeling alive felt so good!
I came home, and all the Little Nies and Mr. Nielson were waiting
for me in the kitchen with a sign.
They clapped for me and sang Happy Birthday.
My birthday itinerary included the following:
Albion in Salt Lake City for a new swimming suit.
Temple Square to see the temple, take photos, and meet the missionaries.
Costco for much-needed groceries (and flowers).
A long nap on my bed with Mr. Nielson.
Cake pick-up at the Sweet Tooth Fairy (MEGAN is the best!!).
Lottie got a cupcake for her best friend, Ada
(Ada and I share the same birthday).
Dinner with Mr. Nielson
Car ride with Mr. Nielson
Movie in bed.
