A Very Unique Tree

It is my Anniversary today - 31 years.  I was only 20 years old when I got married, and I had Nel at 21.  Three years later, I had Jess, and six years after that, we had our son.  I thought this picture was perfect for our special day.  Jess passes by this tree often, and it always catches her eye.





This song is not "our song", but it has always reminded me of the two of us.

Happy Anniversary to the one I love.

Happy anniversary to both of you, Sheri!!! How admirable these days. We're right behind you guys at 26 years and we were married at 21. I wish you both many more.

LOVE all your journals too. Could never have too many journals is my motto. ;) It's so good to visit your page, and take in the music. I know I've mentioned it before but could not resist.

Love and blessings.

Hi Sheri~~ Congratulations to you and your husband!!! 31 years is quite an accomplishment of love and commitment in these days of throw-away marriages. You are a good role model for your children, so many, many more years of happiness to you.
Thanks for your visit tonight. But when I clicked on your name to come to see you, Blogger said your blog didn't exist!! And it said your name was available!!! I did it 3 times. Wonder what blogger is up to this time!! Also I can't seem to add you to my blog roll. Is it me !!??? :D

Wow, 31 years how wonderful is that? Happy Anniversary. It will be easy for me to remember your anniversary because it's my son's birthday today too! He is 25 years old (wow!) I'm so thrilled you liked my hummingbird picture. They are just so cute and bring a smile to my face too. Congrats on 31 years!

Happy Anniversary!!!! I wish you many, many more wonderful years together. Love the heart on the tree and "I've Got You, Babe." My husband met my parents for the first time at a Sonny and Cher concert in Orlando, Florida, when I was about 16 years old. I have that song on my playlist. It always makes me think of that day. Glad it is special for you, too. Love ya, Kim

Sheri and Mike, a Very Happy Anniversary 31 years and going strong, good for you. We went to a 50th anniversary celebration a couple of weeks ago and the priest gave a beautiful sermon, anyway he closed by saying "now don't forget 1+1 does not equal 2 cause 1+1=1 in a marriage and we thought that was beautiful. Hugs and thank you for visiting my blog....Lu

Sandy said...

Happy 31st Anniversary! We celebrated our 37th in May. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such sweet comments. I just became a follower of your blog. I think it is neat to share it with your daughters. I would have loved to had a blog with my Mom...she had a wonderful sense of style and a great sense of humor. Your blog has a nice clean stylist look to it and fantastic photos. Hugs, Sandy
