Big milestones are the best! Everyone gathers around and celebrates many years together, and the bonds they share with one another. It’s a time full of reminiscing, laughter, and great stories. When I asked Marilyn and Peter what advice they had for newer couples, they said that there wasn’t any specific or magic pearl of wisdom, but that you had to keep working on the relationship through the good times and the bad. They are a great example of how to do it right!
The meal was perfect, with good food and great company. Their daughter Jennifer spoke first and said grace, and her sister Christine toasted the happy couple. The children had fun, and inspected the chocolate fountain… just for quality control, you understand 😉
It was a happy day. Here are a few of my favourites from their brunch gathering at Elements on Hollis in The Westin Hotel.
