We made it. ONE YEAR!! Today has been quite solemn and surreal. Every moment of my day I've been thinking.. "last year I was... doing this and doing that getting ready for my trip to Hell's Canyon. I was cooking chicken and cutting vegetables, packing up the food, stuffing the cooler, grabbing my comfy pillow, camera.. I couldn't forget that! I needed photos of my Man and his gigantic salmon. Naively and might I say awesomely ready for an incredible, fun filled adventure. Actually at times I've felt through this year like I was foolish and careless to throw so much caution to the wind. CAUTION was always my motto, and the last couple of years I have broke out of my cage of so much fear. What happened happened. Am I better off today because of it. Yes. I have been humbled and no matter where I go in this life, I hope to ALWAYS have this lesson burned into my skull... and belly... I am the dust of the earth. But I am magnified from this experience. Thank you so much for the endless love, relief, donations, and prayers. Who knew fishing was an extreme sport?! Surprise! The Hilton family will forever be changed... but for the better. Tomorrow we will revisit the very spot from which I fell. Tonight each of my children as well as Nick and I wrote on slips of paper what we want to "let go" of from this year, and accident. We've fastened them to balloons and will release them literally as well as figuratively. This is a symbol to us. I am excited!
