The photos are great. You look beautiful in both photos(there isn't much different in the two, I have to say). Sorry the children are sick. I will say a prayer that it passes and you can all enjoy the cruise vs. quarantine!

Hi, Joanne. I'm Marla. Nice to meet you. :) Just wanted you to know that I prayed for your girlies just now and will keep praying whenever they come to mind. I feel like I know them after reading Living Simply, which I just finished yesterday. :) Long story short, I just signed on with Bill a couple months ago. He sent me your Simple Wife proposal to get an idea for my next one, I devoured it, bought the book the next day, and about peed my pants every time I read something else we have in common. (except that I don't knit, could never be a ballet dancer, and am not opposed to an occasional trip to Chuck E. Cheese) :) The icing on the cake was your H.S. prom pic--my husband Gabe looked JUST LIKE Toben when he was a senior in high school. Uncanny. Talk to you soon! Enjoy your cruise!
