What's Your Money Story?
When I was in high school, I created a family tree for history class. Some of you have probably completed similar projects, drawing Sharpie lines between people, figuring out connections, and bringing complicated relationships together on one page. As I talked to my relatives about the assignment, stories about quirky family members invariably came up in conversation. I learned about a great-grandmother who lived to be 100 and ate an ice cream sundae every afternoon. There are tales of a distant great-uncle who said he was a doctor but was actually a bit of a con artist. One of my favorites is a romantic story about my (5x) great-grandfather who immigrated to the US because his family did not approve of his wife.
