Thirty-five years of marriage…wow, that is a long time! That is how many years my parents have been married for. Lucky for us, they were in Sydney so I, my brother along with AS and my SIL decided that this was the time to celebrate.
My parents were not very keen to have a celebration at first but the as we talked about it they came around and finally we decided to have the celebration for their 35 years of union.
Why do I admire my parents and their 35 years of marriage?
First of all they had an arranged marriage as I have talked before in my blog. They met only a couple of times before their marriage. But their marriage has everything a couple needs to have in a successful marriage and I am so proud to call them my parents.
It is said that you don’t really appreciate your parents until you become one, and I have to say that is at least partially true. I admit that I probably never truly appreciated how hard it is to raise a child until I had Chhori. Now I truly understand the sacrifices they made so I and my brother could get the best possible things in our life. I am not sure I will ever be able to match that with my children but I will surely try.
My parents have also taught me many lessons in my life. They have taught me that love is true and that love can last forever. I love my parents and I am proud to be their daughter.
So to celebrate the special day, we booked a restaurant, invited 40 – 50 close friends and family and made the day one to remember. I made sure my mum was dressed like a bride in a red saree and dad in his finest suit.
We ordered a cake with their old photo on it and decorated the restaurant with banners and balloons.
The evening started with a family photo shoot and as guests started to arrive, the fun began. We had lots of fun with drinks, food and dance. Sharing a few photos from the day.
Happy anniversary, Dad and Mom!
Have a great week everyone.
