Joan and Elliot's 40th Anniversary

My wonderful parents, Joan and Elliot, will be married for 40 years on the 13th of October. They spent 30 of those years raising my sister, my brother, and I, and we never gave them a break!

Forty years ago, they went to nearby Provincetown, MA for their original honeymoon but had to keep it short because my mom was in school, and they had no money. I would LOVE for them to have a special celebration of this incredible moment in their relationship. Perhaps a true honeymoon! 

Your donations would go towards a trip for my mom and dad, something fun! perhaps a romantic getaway to Northern California, where they can enjoy a cup of coffee in the coastal fog, hear waves crash against the cliffs, Mom can visit beautiful gardens, Dad can take a coastal brewery tour, they can both explore the Pacific coast, see some seals, maybe a whale, take walks under the Redwoods and relax and watch a West Coast sunset!

For those of you who know my parents, they would not treat themselves to something like this, but they truly deserve a relaxing vacation, I wish I could make this happen for them on my own, and I am so grateful for your support, if we all pitch in a little we could really make this a reality for them and make this landmark 40 years a true celebration for them to remember for a lifetime!
