Janet was a lawyer specializing in family law, mainly estate planning and adoptions. After she retired a few years ago, she wanted adventure. So, she took an apartment in Paris and spent several months brushing up on her French. Then, she went to China for a couple of years and taught English. Now, Janet is halfway through a Peace Corps assignment in Ukraine, teaching English again. But, she was able to come back to Hartford to be with her children and friends for the holidays!

A lovely lady living an exciting life. :)
what a remarkable woman...a wonderful model for us all.
A handsome woman who has achieved much. Must have a lot of strength and inner resources. Kudos to her!
Handsome????? Lowell, you'll get yourself in trouble without me. How about pleasant?
She reminds us all--- 'adventure' is where you find it regardless of age, experience.
What an accomplished woman! Very impressive.
An impressive lady she is!! What a wonderful life she has had!! Great choice for the day, Jack!! Happy New Year!! Enjoy!
What a great adventure!
Good to hear of someone grabbing life by the throat, when some seek to retire to a life of ease. I wish I had - but I don't think I have - that much courage.
What a great Lady!
What a wonderful story and photo, Jack. Thanks!
I can only hope to be half as adventurous after I retire from teaching.
*I must admit that at first glance of this photo, it looked to me like a shot from a BBC drama :)
Hooray for her - carpe diem!
I hope when I retire to be able to volunteer.. a lot!
Oh my, several months in Paris, Janet lived my dream..she certainly is the adventurous sort, good on her! Here's wishing you a very Happy New Year Jack, see you next year!!
Janet's the best! (share the photo of her and Jed in the photo booth!) x
What a adventurous spirit. Most of us have narrowing lives as we get older. Not her. My new hero. Jack, wishing you a Happy New Year. Keep on clicking.
I wonder what aspects of the U.S. she misses. I have an American friend who worked at the embassy in Romes for years and just recently retured in Italy for a couple of months. She's been telling me about all the conveniences she misses: e.g. SaranWrap, clothes dryer etc. Bravo to Janet for taking on such adventures.
