Summer 2021

| July 22, 2021

It’s hard to believe the year is flying by and we’re already more than halfway through the year.  It’s been good to see some normalcy returning to our everyday lives, but we still have far to go.  Continued infection rates with new variants occupy the news daily and “Help Wanted” signs are everywhere, especially in front of restaurants.  I am hopeful we can soon put 2020 behind us and live without fear again. 

 As the world reopens, getting some time off to travel and relax is on everyone’s minds, along with making up for lost vacations from last year.  Family reunions are springing up as many have gone more than a year without seeing parents and siblings in-person.  In our family, our 8-month-old granddaughter has yet to meet one side of great aunts/uncles and other family (hopefully we can fix that in the coming weeks).  Health and fitness are also at the top of many lists.  I’ve complained over the past few months of suffering from Covid 30(lbs).  Getting back to a regular workout regimen and working with a fantastic personal trainer has dropped me to Covid 25 so I’m making progress.  I did see that, on average, the weight gain over the past year was 29 pounds, so I guess I can’t’ complain much about the 30, but…..I will be happy to get rid of the additional baggage.  How have you fared?

 Heading into the summer months, it is also a good time to review your plans and portfolios to determine if adjustments should be considered.  Much has changed and inflation is rearing its head.  Are there any alterations you need to make in your investments or retirement plans to take them into account?  Reach out to me via my scheduling site, to discuss or put a missing plan in-place.
