I have officially passed the CFP (R) exam!
I’m pretty excited – it was the culmination of 3 years of work with the last 6 months definitely being the most time-consuming and intense.
Unfortunately, I can’t actually use the designation since I don’t have the required experience. One of the best parts of taking the classes and preparing for the test was the breadth of information I learned. I learned more about tax planning, insurance, and estate planning than I ever thought I wanted to (but turned out to actually be very interesting).
This morning I didn’t set an alarm for the first item in about 6 months and it was absolutely glorious. I slept until 6 am!
I’ve already starting ticking things off the extensive to-do list that’s built up over the course of the year. This weekend I plan to spend a lot of time with the kids and do some serious gardening.
Perhaps more importantly, I’ll be able to sit down and enjoy the season premiere of “Game of Thrones” on Sunday night without feeling guilty that I’m not studying!
