GRAND Magazine - March/April 2012 - (Page 2)

grand view Spring is in the air! Coming from a farm, for me this season has always represented new beginnings: The snow melts, the grass and flowers peek out, and baby animals abound. So invigorating! As I approach the middle of my life, I’m especially aware that spring is a great time for renewal. Take a look at our cover story on actress Diane Ladd and Robert Charles Hunter. Diane’s long successful career defines reinvention. She currently appears alongside daughter Laura Dern on HBO’s Enlightened. There is no new beginning like remarrying at midlife. Do not miss Ann-Margaret Carrozza’s article on pre- and postnuptial agreements, the importance of estate planning, and making certain your wishes are respected. And speaking of respecting wishes, veteran estate planning and elder law attorney P. Mark Accettura’s book Blood & Money offers us insight into why families fight over inheritances and how we can prevent disputes. Speaking of new, we have a new Saturday morning ritual at our house—an early morning pajama party with grandson Gabriel while Mom goes to Pilates class. We hang in bed and “talk.” He is sitting up now and is very verbal. Such a fun way to kick off our weekend! Cheers to new beginnings!
