It has been over two and a half years of giggling, sharing, learning, making new friends, having new experiences, going places, career changes, and the basic ups and downs of life. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be invited into your homes and your lives. We really do feel as though we have “Girlfriends” all around the globe. It is with a heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to all of this.
There are many reasons for the change but mostly it was the distance that made it hard for the three of us to get together and schedules that made it difficult for us to coordinate film dates. Leah’s research for the treatment of Leukemia has taken a dramatically positive turn so she is spending a lot more time in the lab on top of the fact that she is a wife and mother of two very active young boys. Johanna’s professional photography plus juggling the schedule of two active young daughters has her in the constant “Mom Taxi” mode. Donna also has a busy family and has been spending a substantial amount of time designing her products, teaching and working on other new “top secret” stuff.
Though many of you may not know this, we did all our own film editing, paid for most of the prizes and also for the postage for mailing out the prizes to the winners. This on top of the cost of keeping the website and blog going were a reoccurring expense that we couldn’t justify any longer. We LOVE doing the filming, we LOVE connecting with our “cyber-Girlfriends” but when we discussed the affect on our families, our only choice was to step away from the Girlfriends for a while.
You can still connect with each of us on facebook and we will continue to do our best to get together every now and then but the blog will be ending and regularly scheduled videos will be going as well. The YouTube account will remain open so if we get new videos, that is where you will be able to find us.
We wish you the very best and we are so grateful to have shared this portion of our journey with you.
Thanks for watching!
Leah, Johanna & Donna
