40 Years Celebrated With Food

My brother and I (and our spouses) feted our parents on their 40th anniversary this weekend.

A celebration of 40 years of marriage is certainly a special occasion and we were all really excited about it.

And how else would we celebrate it but with food?

The only thing my parents wanted to do was come together over a great meal. So that’s what we did.

We had everything under the sun: salmon, boneless chicken breasts and, of course, steak. Yum.

What better way is there to toast a lifetime of commitment, perseverance and love? It’s what we’ve done for my entire life in my family. Great food makes us feel warm, taken care of and loved.

So happy anniversary, Mom and Dad. Thanks for the amazing example you set. We’ll be celebrating with great food for the next 40 years as well.
