May 1st, 2015

Mother. Mom. Ma. Mama. Mommy. Mum. Mummy. Madre. The list of names she could be called is countless, but there’s only one woman who holds that exclusive place in your heart. And if you’re lucky enough to still have her here on earth with you, make sure you honor her this Mother’s Day. I consider myself one of the lucky ones. My mom is not only still here, she’s amazing in so many ways. Vibrant, healthy, loving and wise, she is a treasure in my family. And this is a seemingly small thing, but I’ve always admired how timeless she is. She always looks put-together, never frumpy, but also never fussy. Just classy, you know.

April 24th, 2015

Happy Teach Children To Save Day!  Admittedly, that doesn’t sound as exciting as “Happy Birthday!” or “Merry Christmas!”  But, April 24th is a profoundly important, though unsung, holiday. Established by the American Bankers Association, Teach Children To Save Day encourages moms and dads to instruct their progeny about the importance of putting funds aside for the future.

Now comes the fun part… the tax refund. There’s nothing quite as much fun as seeing that sum pop into your bank account. Now it’s time to decide how to spend the funds your friends at the IRS just sent back to you. Depositing it into your retirement account or setting it aside for your kid’s college tuition might be shrewd choices, but they aren’t much fun. Instead of simply making an astute decision, look for a way to spend your refund that is both brainy and beguiling.
