I’ve always felt something like panic when someone asks, “What’s new with you?” I suddenly feel like I have to come up with something interesting and rarely feel like I can deliver. And then there’s January 2022–talk about starting a new year off NEW!

Let’s see. New house. New job. New town. Oh, and my husband finally got a new car after more than a decade!

If you’ve missed my weekly blog posts lately, well, I’m gonna say all of that is my excuse. But we’re pretty well settled now. I have two weeks as full-time director of The Mitford Museum under my belt, and my intent is to get back to regular updates here on the ole blog. Which is NOT new and that’s a comfort at the moment!

Just for fun, here are a few pictures of favorite spots in our new house. It’s cozy and lovely and somehow reminds me of my childhood home on the farm in WV. Maybe it’s the windows . . .

So, what’s NEW with you?
