As many of you know- Rhonna announced a couple weeks ago that it was time for her to move on from House of 3—and while her decision meant that House of 3 would never be the same, I knew that she was making the very best decision for her and her family- and she had nothing but our full support—This major change meant that we had to really evaluate what our options were and how we were going to move forward- and after many conversations, and discussing many different scenarios- we realized that in fact, it is time for House of 3 to come to an end.
It’s funny when you move into a new ‘chapter’ or sage of life… how it just kind of sneaks up on you, and you realize that it’s time to move forward… first of the new year, we moved to a new part of town, and while it didn’t seem as daunting as an overseas- or even a inter-state move, I think that I HIGHLY underestimated the changes and adjustments that would need to be made in our family. Every one of our kids changed schools, we needed new dance/preschools/sports, as well as a new ward (church) and carpools, bus routes, eric’s commute and a whole new routine. I really think that since I have had some much more seemingly ‘major’ moves, and life changes in the last few years, that in my mind, this was no big deal… and I have tried to just keep going along- doing my thing, and keeping the status quo-
However, the more I try to manage things in the way I did before, the more frustrated I have become! I have realized in the last few weeks, that I needed to make some major adjustments as well…. My passion for my work has definitely been a driving force in my life- and balancing that with the needs and schedules of my family has always been a struggle, or maybe I should call it a ‘losing battle’… LOL, one I am sure we can all relate with!
During these past few weeks, I have taken a really hard look at what is ‘working’ and what needs to change- where I want to place my focus, and ways that I can work smarter, and improve the functionality of our family… My favorite part of the last year or so has been doing that weekly, crazy-fun webshow… while I have loved the opportunity of sharing new ideas, mostly I think that I have loved the connection with you- my friends! It’s like a big ‘scrapbook night’ every week! I want to thank you all for joining me every wed night and chatting along with us! I am going to take a break from the show for awhile…but it will be back!
I think that change is good- I am SO SAD that House of 3 is coming to an end. It has been the happiest, funnest, most delightful experience to work so closely with Janet and Rhonna. They are both pure creative genius, and I have learned so much from them. I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity! And I feel like I am going forward a better person because of them. While I am not totally sure what the future has in store, whatever it is, I know that I will be taking photos, and gluing them to pretty papers and adding sparkly embellishments all around them!
I am happy, thankful and ready for change…
I do believe that things happen for a reason, and I couldn’t be more excited for what lies in store… you can read more about the plan for phasing out 'www.houseof3.com' HERE
