Update from Janae!

Hi, I'm Janae. I am the one who keeps the blog updated, replies to most of your emails, manages our Facebook page, and takes care of shipping out your mail orders! This past February has marked 6 years since I started working here at Farmhouse Memories with my Aunt Rachel. I am sad to inform all of you that next month (May) will be my last month of work here. I plan to move at the beginning of June, with my family, to Western PA (Westmoreland County). We bought a farm out there and will be part of a church plant started by our church here at home. Many of you have asked me what I plan to do as far as a job, and I am not entirely sure yet at this point. As far as my responsibilities here at the Farmhouse, Karina will be taking over my responsibilities since she is here one day a week.
Over the past 6 years, so many of you, our customers, have become very dear friends to me and I am so sad to say goodbye. I feel so blessed & grateful to have been able to meet so many of you, and interact with you, and be a small part of many of your lives. Even though leaving here will be difficult, I am SO excited about the things God has for me in the future and where He has been leading my family! May all of us continue to be faithful where God has called us! <3
