    Yes, but what do we do about the social security problem??!!

    • Belle says:

      I think you need to put in an income or net worth cap. Why is Warren Buffet getting Social Security? That doesn’t fix it alone though. There’s some waste and fraud to cut, but again, won’t fix it alone. Whatever we do though, you need to have it affect only the people 45 and younger, the people who can prepare for it to be different.

      • Jess says:

        I was thinking about this issue last night before I saw your comment, and I completely agree with your statement about having to start it in only those who can prepare for it. There is just no easy answers to government, is there? And yes to the question about why Warren Buffet and any others in an income bracket like that would get social security.

        • Jenn S. says:

          Late to the party on this topic but agree on all counts. Due to wise investing and my grandfather’s successful career, my grandparents are more than comfortable, want for nothing, etc; but still receive Social Security because of how the system works. It’s bizarre!

      • Heatherskib says:

        This is an ongoing conversation with my grandparents. My parents are deceased, so it’s literally Millennial and Boomer talking straight about it. I keep showing them that we’re losing money, and I can’t count on pensions/social security to keep us afloat after retirement. Incomes are stagnant, inflation is up, automation will eliminate lower wage working positions, and Post 9/11 congress and the senate approved raiding Social Security to pay for the war (Before most Millennials could vote). I’ve asked them to just stop complaining to us about it at this point. I have a feeling that the millennial generation is going to have to eat the Social Security program eventually. Social Security as a concept is important… but it only works as long as there are more people putting money in than taking it out.

    I just pinned the same monkey bread recipe for Christmas vacation. Hopefully it turns out half as stunning as the photo!

  3. Jessie says:

    My family has made pfankuchen (also called a dutch baby) every Christmas morning for as long as I can remember. It’s easier than pancakes to whip up, and more impressive because it’s puffy, almost like a souffle. I highly recommend it!

    The link to the pajamas doesn’t work 🙁

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
