time for a change


The gentleman has a theory that if doors keep opening, one should probably take that as a hint. Last week, one such door opened for us, bringing big changes to our little world. I am pleased to announce that the gentleman has been named the new Executive Director of the Museums of Old York, in York, Maine (I'm so terribly proud of him).

So, I think you can guess what that means ~ our time in Washington is quickly coming to close.

We are impossibly excited to be headed north, knowing that there will be bittersweet moments in the transition. There is so much to think about in the next month and I hope you'll excuse my necessary absence from this space. But, oh the adventures we'll have in Maine!

Here's to new beginnings. . .

Congratulations to you both. I hope this doesn't mean we'll lose you altogether. Nonetheless, best wishes.

This couldn't be better news---for you and the Gentleman, for the very wonderful Museums of Old York, and for those of us who are selfishly glad to have you here in Maine. Best wishes

JBR said...

Wow - such great news (despite being a major loss for a certain DC institution)! To the gentleman: very impressive indeed! Congratulations! So hope all will go well as you prepare to move, during the transitions, and as you begin the next chapter in Maine!

Congratulations! What exciting news. Your parents must be THRILLED! Don't know if this means I will get to see more of you. I tend to get to Maine half as much as DC, but tend to be more leisurely when in Maine, then when in DC. So psyched for this change.

Congrats to both of you. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity and a location you already love. Kept thinking I would get to D.C. and have a chance to meet you. Maybe this means a vacation in Maine some day!

Barbara said...

Such good fortune for Maine, her history & her people.

smilla4blogs said...

You know already, we are popping with joy! And...perhaps we will get to see more of Angela too. So much happiness!

L. said...

I'm so excited for both of you--I can't wait to see what this next chapter has in store for you!

Donna said...

Congratulations to you both! York is my hometown; Old York provided me with my first internship. It remains a very dynamic organization and will no doubt become even more so!

kate h. said...

congrats to J!! What a fantastic position!! Sad you are leaving, but what an adventure that awaits...

ArchitectDesign™ said...

Janet said...

KDM ~ start looking for cheap flights, because you must come visit!

pve ~ I hope you will find yourself in Maine again. . .

Blue ~ thank you! I really hope this move will mean that I'll have more time to devote to the blog.

Gaye ~ I think you are right!

hbd ~ thank you kindly.

Janet said...

DED ~ we will practically be neighbors (those distances being relative once you cross the Maine border). Looking forward to seeing you more.

JBR ~ thank you kind sir! So proud of that gentleman of mine.

Meg ~ yes, at last. The cat is out of the bag!

Greer ~ can't wait to catch up. xo

Angela ~ I too am hoping for some leisurely visits in New England (can't get anywhere in Maine without passing York). xo

Janet said...

Linda ~ oh, I do hope you will come. I'll need your advice on the garden. . .

Barbara ~ good fortune for us (though we will miss you terribly).

Mom ~ :).

Laura ~ thank you! Looking forward to sharing the adventure.

Donna ~ that's amazing. Would love to hear more about York from you. No doubt we'll be in Salem more often too.

Kate ~ hope you will come visit. Would love to see Maine through your lens.

Stefan ~ I will miss our friends terribly, but count on you all to come visit.

AmazingRolo said...

Oh wow, how exciting. We will totally be visiting. Congrats!
