Over the years we have posted some very informative blogs. I’ve compiled a list of some of our earliest posts that still hold a lot of good information.
“Who Gets the Rolex?”–A few years before she died, my Nana started sending me things from her home in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I had a few reactions: one, “I’ve always loved this jewelry box/necklace/__ . . . how sweet” and two, “this is really depressing.”
“Dads, the Mariners and Estate Planning.”–Today is Father’s Day, which is a particularly poignant day for me and my brothers, who lost our dad in February of this year. We celebrated his life in a beautiful memorial last weekend and it was everything I wanted it to be and more.
“Proud to be an American! Even if it Means Paying More Taxes”–The Fourth of July is always a fun celebration, particularly when the country could use a little levity. To celebrate the fantastic experiment that is America, I did a little research into the history of the estate tax and how it got to where it is today.
“Life Insurance and Fortune Cookies”–The other day, I took my kids out to get teriyaki and we all got fortune cookies, which is – clearly – the best part of the meal. My 2 year old daughter crunched open her cookie and gave me the fortune to read to her. I about spit my water out it made me laugh so hard.
“You Guys…Aretha Franklin Died Without a Will”–The beloved songstress, Aretha Franklin, died on August 16, 2018, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, further solidifying my deep hatred of pancreatic cancer.
“When your Babies aren’t Babies any More”–This last week, my four-year-old son started his second year of preschool, played in his first outdoor soccer game, started playing flag football, and said “actually, mom . . .” to correct something I said.
“Put a Ring on It”–Lately, I’ve noticed a lot of people coming into my office who are committed, long-term partners but have decided not to get married for whatever reason. I find it refreshing . . . if something is working, don’t over-formalize it.
“What To Do What About Airplane Miles?”–This Thanksgiving, we’re going to Palm Springs for a week to visit family. To fly our family of four from Seattle to Palm Springs costs $3,500. That’s insane, right?
“Snow, Ear Infections and Powers of Attorney”–This last week has been an exciting one for residents of Western Washington as we experienced “Snowmageddon 2019.” The snow has been quite impressive – we got 10 inches at our house Friday night/Saturday morning.
“Why You Should Watch the Descendants Now.”–Tonight, I re-watched “The Descendants”, one of my very favorite movies. It came out in 2011 and stars George Clooney and Shailene Woodley. In 2011, I didn’t have kids and got to see movies in the theater. I saw this one in the theaters twice.
