My wife and I have been taking drives to Pere Marquette State Park almost every week. Even before the fall colors appear, the drive is beautiful. We've also found a peaceful picnic spot to enjoy the outdoors, without the concerns of running into crowds. For us, it's the combination of the drive and the destination.

It makes me think of a famous quote by Ernest Hemingway.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward,
but it is the journey that matters in the end."

This is true with financial planning too. You should have goals for retirement, a dream to work towards. However, you must not forget to enjoy how you get there. Live life. When you enjoy the journey, the destination - your retirement - will be that much sweeter.

Whether you need help on your journey or at your destination, we are here for you. And I hope you will continue to share your journey with us.
