The more intimate dates within our family are remembered, celebrated for the happiness they bring. My parents’ wedding anniversary is one of those dates. Today is their 65th anniversary. Mom would say, “Sorry, I have missed this celebration and a half.” While it is bittersweet, my dad is not one for misty-eyed moments. He has remained loyal in wearing his wedding band after mom’s passing.
A baker, a lover of chocolate, mom would have loved these chocolate chip cookies. Extra rich, they are the “melt-in-your-mouth” kind. “Decadent,” mom would have proclaimed.
Our family chocolatier, Laurie, baked these late, last evening after a long day at work. They will be savored tonight after a hearty stew for dinner. A perfect dessert on a cold winter’s night.
A toast to their long marriage.
