While Philip was on a trip to Milwaukee last week, the kids and I hauled this H-E-A-V-Y, old TV up the stairs and out to the trash (we have been meaning to do this since we moved here!)
We felt SO great for doing this!

So... I was hanging out with some friends a couple weeks ago, wearing this dress, and one friend noticed that another of our friends had earrings that matched my dress perfectly! She jokingly said, "Well, now Joia needs to have those earrings!" The friend wearing them immediately took them off and gave them to me! It was Such a sweet and generous gesture (at the end of a pretty horrible couple of days for me). The friend who suggested it is a blossoming artist and snapped a photo of me on her phone and went home and did this beautiful colored pencil portrait to commemorate the moment! What a precious gift! I am so blessed.
