Friday Finance Links May 10, 2013 – Happy Mother’s Day (and Final) Edition

Mother's Day cake

Sunday is Mother’s Day and I know my wife is glad to have our two local kids home this weekend.  On Sunday we will be heading to Rosebud on Rush in the city for lunch, a favorite spot, for the second year in a row.

This will be my last weekly links post, but you will continue to find my latest posts about  topics regarding financial planning, investments, and retirement plans here at  The Chicago Financial Planner.   I will likely continue to do a links post of some sort from time to time.

I thank everyone for your continued readership.  If there is a topic  that you would like me to write about or a question that you would like answered please send me a note via the contact page.
