In The Community

We had the pleasure of attending the Bloom event put on by Colorado Springs Mom Blog and sponsored a VIP lunch at the beautiful Colorado Springs School. This event hosted a variety of expecting and new moms. Moms were able to enjoy a panel discussion, a vendor fair and a VIP lunch to give them resources and information on motherhood. We set up a fun table and were able to connect with moms in the area to discuss hot topics in the planning world. We had so many great questions and had a lot of fun meeting and mingling with everyone. The VIP lunch was spectacular and setup in an elegant "classroom." We had an in depth discussion followed by a Q&A session. We thoroughly enjoyed hearing the great questions the moms had. Our initial focus was on education planning for little ones but we found ourselves discussing many complex strategies that came about from those questions. This made us realize that we all have questions about planning but might not know who to ask. We really emphasized having conversations with your significant other, and your current advisor (if you have one) to make sure you are all on the same page, especially before introducing a little one into the equation. Having an open dialogue is important in planning to make sure you understand what is going on. We want to know that you are taking care of yourselves along with planning for your children's future. Always ask questions and do not be afraid to ask them multiple times to make sure you have a good grasp of what is going on. Thank you to all the women who participated at the event and thank you to the host! Written By: Derek Martin & Erin Watkins
