Today, we break from financial conversations to celebrate the season with you. We know that’s going to be a tall order this year. After all, families have been coming together for millennia to gather around holiday tables. Counting their blessings. Mourning shared sorrows. Hugging one another tight.

It’s heartbreaking how many of our most cherished traditions are now on hold.

If you’re like us, you may be tired of happy little pep talks, encouraging us to buck up and make the most of it. We get that humans are resilient. We marvel at how creatively we’ve risen to the occasion. We remain confident we’ll once again thrive – hopefully sooner than later.

But for now, let’s just go ahead and say it: This sucks. We too are frustrated by the months of social distancing, our own diminished gatherings, the quiet in our communities. We miss hanging out with you in person. We miss each other.

All that said, we still have abundant gratitude to share. In good times and bad, being able to help others maintain their financial well-being adds meaning to our own lives beyond compare. We deeply appreciate being in a position to advise you and yours during such challenging times. We are honored to be entrusted with your wealth management throughout the pandemic, and beyond.

We hope you, in turn, have found comfort in our company. Whether virtually or in person, we look forward to our continued conversations. In the meantime, we wish you and yours all the best this holiday season.
