It has been quite a whirlwind around here. My daughter graduated from preschool! My first-born celebrated his 9th birthday! I turned 40! My family and I have enjoyed such a bounty of loving family and friends, of good health and good weather, and of incredible community. I barely have words to express my gratitude.
Having gotten through all of these big family and life events, it feels like summer is finally underway. This weekend, my husband, Ken, and I are flying to Chicago for a wedding and mini-vacation. Thanks to my mom, we are going without our kids; this will be the first time we've flown on an airplane together without them. It is nerve-wracking!
I've updated our own estate plan in anticipation of this trip. Having our documents in place and up-to-date does not remove the fearsomeness of air travel, but it does take the edge off.
Knowing that many of you are facing similar travel worries, I've created a summer schedule of Panic-free Estate Planning Workshops. The first one is on Saturday, June 26, at Recess Urban Recreation. I know this date is fast-approaching, but there is still plenty of time to sign up and GET THIS DONE. The Workshops are really that easy! There's a bit of homework and thinking to do before hand, but mostly you simply need to show up and do it. If you don't believe me, read my testimonials.
If you can't attend any of the dates this summer, in August I will be posting and circulating a schedule for the fall, so stay tuned. If you've already attended a Workshop (or even if you haven't) and you know people who you think might be interested in these unusual and even enjoyable events, please forward this information along to them.
With tremendous gratitude and best wishes for a wonderful (and panic-free) summer,
