The My Day In Pictures articles are to keep friends and family updated on what is going on with my life. It was instituted at the request and for the benefit of one of my favorite people in the world, one of my aunts who is a retired telephone operator and lives a few hours away from me.

A Different View from Reception Looking into the Conference Room

Kennon-Green & Co. Recently Grew to More than $105 Million Under Management and Is Relocating to an Expanded Office at 520 Newport Center Drive in Newport Beach, California

Fueled by a combination of reinvested profits (realized and unrealized gains, dividends, and interest), net client contributions, and new private client relationships, our wealth management business has recently found itself entrusted with more than $105 million in capital. This growth, combined with having a new baby and my desire to be able to walk to work in a matter of minutes, has resulted in an acceleration of our plans. Therefore, effective September 1st, 2021, Kennon-Green & Co. will be headquartered at one of the most beautiful buildings in the United States.

We Are Dads! Our First Child, Dorian Alexander Kennon-Green, Was Born!

Aaron and I are ecstatic to share with you that our son, Dorian Alexander Kennon-Green, was born in mid-April. After a gestational surrogacy journey that began several years ago, it all paid off when he came into the world in perfect health, weighing 7 lbs. 5 ounces. As I have told friends and family, he was born with a head full of hair, and, to our great fortune and blessing, a temperament that is sweet and patient. It has been one of the great joys of our lives to get to know him.

Happy New Year! A Look Inside Our Life as We Set Out to Make 2021 Incredible!

As I write this message, it is January 2nd, 2021.  Today marks the second day of the new year, the thirteenth day since the start of winter, and the 13,987th day of my life.  The holiday weekend afforded me something I haven’t had in a long time: a moment of respite as much of the world shut down for celebration. Well-rested, I’m ready to jump into the New Year. Here is an inside look at some of the things going on in our home and business as we gear up for a post-pandemic world.

A Wonderful Christmas in a Strange and Unusual Year

Merry Christmas!  I hope all of you are doing well and that your celebrations  were filled with happiness, laughter, and good food! For our part, this year marked the 20th Christmas that Aaron and I have spent together.  Like every one of those other Christmases, it was one of the best days of my life (despite the unusual circumstances and challenges this year has brought).  We decided that with the world feeling so uncertain, and the need to remain socially distanced from others, it would be the perfect opportunity to stay home, wear knitted sweaters and jeans, and enjoy a classic early-to-mid twentieth century dinner; pure, old-school comfort food that envoked a sense of warmth and safety, friends and family, prosperity and peace.

A Behind-the-Scenes Preview of Kennon-Green & Co.’s New Offices

Given that so many of our family and friends can’t travel to see us during this pandemic, Aaron and I wanted to share an early access glimpse into our asset management firm’s new home. It’s not the same as seeing it in person but it should at least give you an idea of where we will be spending a lot of our time in the coming years as we allocate capital and scale operations.

Sheltering-in-Place Newport Coast Style

Along with 1 out of 2 Americans, including the entirety of the rest of the State of California, Aaron and I have been sheltering-in-place and practicing social distancing.  Given that we spent a vast portion of our lives together living semi-retired, this is not a significant change for us.  If anything, it feels like a return to our Missouri days, especially considering that after two years in the heart of Newport Beach, we decided not to renew the lease on our existing place and, instead, move up to Newport Coast so we can decide if that might be where we ultimately want to buy a house once our kids are born.
