    Month Recap Welcome to the second installment of the DGI Portfolio journey. Another four weeks of law school has certainly made me wish it was summer again.

    Hello everyone! This is the start of my documentation of my dividend growth investing journey. I am almost two years into my timeline and am continually learning more and more about the stock market.
