First of all, a thousand apologies for the long break. We promise there was A LOT going on behind the scenes. A few months ago Gild & Wit East moved into a new studio in the Boston Seaport. Then there was all the personal stuff that comes up in the summer time--little sisters getting married abroad, taking babies to the beach, etc, etc--but the BIG NEWS is that my family and I are moving back to Chicago in the fall.
It has been a long time coming really. Amy and I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. My husband Alan did too. Our parents are still there. Really, this was a decision to move "home". As an added bonus, Amy and I get to be together and Gild & Wit will be full force in Chicago.
As excited as I am to move back to my favorite city, I am incredibly sad to leave Boston. It's been home since 2006. It is the longest I have ever lived anywhere outside of my parents' house. In these 9 years I have made incredible friendships, gotten engaged, gotten married, started a family, started a career, changed careers, started a business, and bought my first home. I love Boston and plan to visit a lot. (You can't get rid of me so easily :).
Where business in Boston is concerned, Gild & Wit is winding down it's services. I will continue to be available for in-home consults until the move in September (read more about those here) but can't take on any more major design projects or renovations. As always, Gild & Wit will be available for online collaborations which have no geographical boundaries.
For the incredible design community here that has welcomed me with open arms (special shout out to Jill Rosenwald Studios and Twelve Chairs Boston for being incredible mentors), to my awesome clients who have let me into their homes, and to my amazing friends here, I cannot thank you enough. Last, but certainly not least, I want to say thank you to the city of Boston for being my home for these past years. I will miss you all terribly.
Good times never seemed so good
I believe they never could...
Now Chicago, HERE WE COME!
