Why do you invest? You do it because you want to retire comfortably. But there are other good reasons to invest – namely, to support your family and your community.
How can you invest in your family’s future? If you have young children, you could start by saving for their education. You might consider a 529 savings plan, which offers potential tax advantages and can be used for college, vocational school or other postsecondary education.
Another way to invest in your family is to help your adult children avoid feeling obligated to provide financial assistance to you. So, for instance, you could get insurance to protect yourself against the devastating costs of long-term care, such as an extended nursing home stay.
Moving beyond your family, you may want to invest in the social fabric of your community by contributing to local charitable, civic, educational or cultural groups. Your tax advisor can help you determine if charitable gifts can offer you tax benefits.
Saving for your retirement will always be important. But don’t forget about investing in your family and your community – because these investments can provide satisfying returns.

The South Park Walkabout is a quarterly fun-filled evening festival that showcases all the unique and independent businesses within South Park. Enjoy complimentary treats, live entertainment and special offers.
WHERE IS THE WALKABOUT?
The Walkabout highlights both the south and north end of the South Park business district. The north end starts at Kalmia and 30th St. and extends south to Beech Street. A few ways to get to South Park
Take 5 South to 94 East to the 28th S
treet exit. Turn right on 28th and then right on Beech Street
Take 5 North to the Pershing Drive exit. Turn right on 26th Street. Head up the hill and make a left on A Street. Another left on 28th Street and a final right on Beech Street.
Take 805 South or North to 94 West and exit on 28th Street. Turn right onto 28th Street and right onto Beech Street.
The 30th Street & Beech Street intersection is the south end of South Park. If you turn left on 30th and head north you can easily access Grape Street and Juniper Street, where businesses of South Park are clustered. This stretch is roughly 10 blocks and totally walkable or bikeable for those who prefer, though it gets a little hilly when heading north.
Gold Leaf is excited to partner with Cotton & Flax, a textile home goods line, for the upcoming Spring Walkabout. Cotton & Flax makes modern, minimalist classics for your kitchen and home. San Diego-based designer Erin Dollar combines bold patterns and beautiful materials to create the perfect textile accents.
You can meet Erin and shop her collection at Gold Leaf during South Park’s Walkabout on Saturday, March 18th. See you there!
If you’ve been in the shop lately, you’ve probably noticed our handcrafted mid-century modern furniture collection. Gold Leaf has partnered with a local furniture design company and we are proud to stock their gorgeous pieces! The company, Four Studio, recently reduced their lead time—now when you order a piece, you’ll only wait 6-8 weeks until the custom chair or sectional is delivered to your door.
Check out Four Studio’s online catalogue HERE or visit our WEBSITE to find the perfect fit for your home. You can also stop by the shop to look at upholstery swatches in person (pet- and kid-friendly options available!) and to see for yourself how well-crafted and comfortable the line is.
We’ve got some fun events coming up for you. First off, Yoga-Mosa Returns! Saturday June 25th starting at 9:45 am. Join the Lovely Jules for an hour yoga sesh and then hydrate with anti-oxidant-rich mimosas! Buy your tickets HERE.
Then, Monday the 27th we’ll be welcoming Romina of Old World Wines to taste us on four wines from Hungary and Greece. Guaranteed, very few of us will be able to pronounce the name of the grapes correctly, but they sure are fun to drink and it’s fascinating to learn their History. Do as Plato did and drink Agiortiko! $16 ($5 for wine club members) for the tasting and themed snacks. Tickets available at the door, we’ll see you there 🙂
Then Tuesday the 28th, Art with Rachel returns! Paint yourself a masterpiece like the one above. $25 for the class and it’s No-Corkage Tuesday so you can grab a bottle and paint your heart out! Sign up for the class here!
Also, don’t forget to join us this week for BAR WEEK. We’re offering half off glasses of local wines and $3 guajillo pork empanadas. #eatlocal.
Finally (for now) Walkabout returns July 8th. You know, keep it on your radar.
Then, on Monday March 14th, we are dropping our March Wine Club.. This month will include exciting offerings such as Oregon Pinot Noir, San-Diego-made riesling from the famous Kick-On Ranch in Santa Barbara, Gavi di Gavi, and Carignan from the Rousillon. The tasting starts at 6:30 and is $5 for members and $15 for non-members. Per usual, complimentary bites will abound. So, join the club and the fun: we’ll see you there 🙂 (Read more about the perks of memership and sign yourself up HERE.)
Next up is the South Park Walkabout! March 19th from 6 – 10 PM, the streets of South Park will come alive with the sounds and smells of small business! We, here at The Rose, will be offering 20% off local bottles of wines to-go and, per usual, be slinging (limited amounts of) empanadas on the sidewalk (minus empanadita, our trusty empanada cart, which was stolen during business hours!)
Lastly, we wanted to let you know that, thanks to your support, The Rose has been noticed by San Diego Magazine as one of the top brunch and date-night spots in San Diego! Woot Woot! Thanks for yelping, enjoying and telling your friends. We you :))

That’s it for now. Look forward to information on the next yoga-mosa, Easter brunch and a four course dinner from the canyon slated for early April.
My holiday season started Thanksgiving week and it didn’t slow down from there. You can read about my adventures at the blog here. Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to take a deep breath and prepare for a brand new year. Taxes are just around the corner, we are electing a new president, and the much talked about El Niño is finally here for much needed rain. For those of you who succeeded with a handmade holiday in 2015, Congratulations! It was so great to see so many students in November and December learning how to sew for the first time. And for those of you who have “learning how to sew” as your new year’s resolution, we have our class schedule updated here and look forward to seeing you in the studio!
