Words on Wealth: Wisdom from my Students, Volume 2

  In January, I shared a post including some words from my students. Today, I am sharing the next edition of their wisdom.

Currently, February 2018

Nearly every night of December, after our big toddler was tucked in bed, Robert and I served ourselves some eggnog or hot chocolate and relaxed near the Christmas tree. We didn't really discuss this, it just happened. It was almost like… Continue reading Wistful for Christmas
