|We Celebrated Our 25th Anniversary!
We celebrated our 25th anniversary this month by going on an Alaskan cruise. It is amazing it has been 25 years. We have been together for over half of our lifetime. We started dating at 19 and got married at 21. I cannot imagine life without James now, and it is hard to remember a time when we weren't together. People said we were too young. Neither one of us understood why people thought that. We both felt very mature at that age. Now when I look at people that young, I cannot imagine them making such a major decision.
We went on the cruise with James' parents who were celebrating their 50th anniversary. Alaska was amazing. I have seen pictures, but they don't do it justice. I was amazed by all the waterfalls. Of course the guide informed us that only a few of them are true waterfalls, and others are just melting snow.

#7 Estate Planning Mistake - Thinking Children Don't Need Inheritance Protection
If you gave $100,000 to an 18-year-old, what are they going to do with it? When I ask this question at seminars, the answers I get have one thing in common: the 18-year-old is going to spend it. Even if you have a really responsible 18-year-old, they are still going to spend it on something irresponsible. If they buy a bigger house, they are not going to think through setting aside money to pay for higher property taxes, a new roof and other expenses associated with home ownership.
If you leave assets outright to your children, they could lose them to divorce, creditors and lawsuits.
