We're off to Disneyland tomorrow for a week of fun with 13 of my favorite people! (we'll miss you, Alan) I'm sure I'll have great pictures next week - check back!
I have big news to post today. Those of you who know me well know that I love interior design. It is a talent of mine and a passion of mine.
As I have been raising my children, interior design has been a hobby. Well, it is about to go from a hobby to a career! I am happy to announce that Rich and I are launching a new business called JPR Design, with a focus on design for custom homes. In order to give JPR Design our best combined effort, Rich has resigned from his job and will manage the business, leaving me free to focus on the creative side. To provide initial funding for the business, we have sold our home and have purchased a smaller home in Springville, Utah, Rich’s hometown. (I hope Michael won’t mind being a Springville Red Devil basketball player!)
On a personal note, I’m so grateful for Rich’s willingness to make changes in his life to further my lifelong dream—even to the point of giving up his calling as bishop of our ward.
We are currently negotiating for office space in Provo. There will be more details later. But I can’t tell you how excited I am about this new adventure!
