13 Year Anniversary Sunday!

This is actually from last Christmas, but, I am 25 lbs lighter, than now, so it's the one I'm picturing
Here we are, so young, so long ago, so many things to tell you young couple. this is the $100 dress I had someone sew and the homemade flowers I made to save money, but, I couldn't be happier, I am so very blessed. I think that our love and blessings have just multiplied over the years!
13 years flew by, yet seem like forever.

We will celebrate by going out to lunch (Sweetie Pie is happier in the daytime) and then some finish-up shopping together.
If you click on the picture, you can see it much better!


  1. Happy Anniversary and many many many more years!

  2. Happy Anniversary Jamie! Where has the time gone?
    You two are so darn cute! What a beautiful wedding look gogeous (as always!). I see your sister so much in that photo! Amazing.

    Have a wonderful weekend and anniversary!!

  3. by clicking on the photo of your wedding pic, I got a better view and what jumped out at me are your and your hubby's eyes. so big and bright and full of anticipation of a life together. what a beautiful photo. and the current pic -- your eyes are the same!! happy anniversary. and you looked beautiful on your wedding day and that dress was beautiful!

  4. Have a wonderful anniversary lunch together, Jamie & Tom! December is a wonderful month for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays & celebrations ... makes the winter seem so much shorter.

  5. Happy Anniversary, Jamie! yet another thing in common-my 13th anniversary is on the 27th of this month!

  6. Happy Anniversary Jamie.

    My wedding dress was made by my mil and we used the lace from my mothers dress. The dress ended up costing me $100.00 too.

    It is amazing how you can cut down the cost of a wedding.


  8. I agree with Suzie about December being a great month for anniversarys...especially since ours is on the 29th!

    Happy Anniversary, dear Jamie!! May God continue to bless your beautiful marriage with joy, peace, and at least a dozen more children.


  9. Happy Anniversary, Jamie! May God continue to bless you with more love and joy throughout the many, many, many years ahead!

  10. Happy Blessed 13yrs Anniversary for you two.

    You are a great fun couple.

    Enjoy your time together. You both look great.

    (get lots of kissing in under the mistletoe!!!!!!)

  11. Your such a handsome couple. Jamie you are beautiful in every picture! In your eyes I can see such a serene happiness.

    Yes, many many more happy anniversaries. What smart planning that right around Christmas you have the GIFT of each other to be thankful for...

  12. Jaime, happy 13th anniversary to you and your husband! You have such a beautiful family!

    What do you think are the keys to a happy marriage? Especially when a couple is given the cross of infertility? Any words of wisdom?

    I find praying the rosary helps, having a sense of humor, and taking it one day at a time. I had a couple of bouts of sadness these past two weeks due to the infertility issues, but I have found praying my 54 day rosary novena and the 7 sorrows rosary has really been helping me a lot!

    I wish I could go see Santa in the mall and when he asks me what would I like for Christmas, tell him "A Baby, please." but I know it doesn't work that way. I know I need to pray more and trust. With all my infertility issues which seem to be getting worse (I don't seem to ovulate anymore, which my Napro doctor confirmed by looking at my Creighton chart, a form of NFP determined by CM, which I don't seem to have either. But still I take out that rosary and pray, pray, and pray some more.

    You know one of my cousins said something to me a week ago which really helped me. I shared my sadness about not having any children and not being a Mother. She told me that in my twenty one years being a teacher at two daycares I have helped so many children. So whenever I start to feel sad or discouraged, I remember that comment. I love that comment! It really means so much to me!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Jaime!


  13. Congratulations you two love birds! What a wonderful example your marriage is to your children of a godly marriage. It's so much fun to look back and see how far you've come, but you're still a cute couple! Love, Nerm

  14. God bless you on your 13th Anniversary, Tom and Jamie!! I remember like it was yesterday, hearing all about how and the special place where Tom proposed. So much has happened since then, to all of us. The good and the bad. Your awesome Faith and Love have helped to keep you two working hard at your marriage and you are reaping all the beautiful blessings!
    Love you may the Christ Child pours his abundant graces upon you now and always!
    Sarah and Curt

  15. I think an anniversary deserves as many cheers and 'happy anniversaries' as you can get. So,
    Happy Anniversary!

    BTW, my SIL made my dress for a whopping $40.00! So high five to savy brides...

    God bless you both.
