on this day...

On April 28, 2001 our daughter married the love of her life.

It was a commitment to face life together...and to look to God for wisdom in whatever situation would come along.

Time passes quickly...and eight years have brought about many changes.

Heidi and Tim...you have stood together over these years...looking out for the interests of each other.

Those of us who supported you on your special day...are still standing by you...with love and prayer.

It has been said that marriage is not about gazing into each others eyes...but about gazing together into the future...of following your dreams as a team.

But I was thinking...if you feel like gazing into each others eyes over dinner tonight...why not bring Maelyn over here?

Happy eighth anniversay!

(...that would be your mother)


  1. What a good looking couple! And what a creative way for you to offer them an evening out together. We do what we can to get "grandma time", right? I want to congratulate both of them on their 8 years of married life. What a blessing for all of you.

  2. Eight years of married life - well, they've had a good example of commitment, haven't they?
    We're booked for the weekend so that our son and daughter-in-law can go out to celebrate their sixth anniversary. Fun at Nana's house this weekend!
    Congratulations to your daughter and her husband - what a handsome couple!

  3. Beautiful couple! And they certainly do have a beautiful baby, too! Happy anniversary to them...

  4. Congratulations Heidi and Tim. How quickly the years slip by.
    I visited your store yesterday. So cute!

  5. Is it 8 years already? My memories of Heidi mostly involve MEI drama and choir - times my daughter shared with her. I think they used our place for one of their filming efforts. Fun to watch! Now, I've got to come and see that store!
    Wishing Heidi and Tim a continued lifetime of happiness!

  6. Congratulations Heidi & Tim. WOW, 8 years already!

  7. Beautiful pic and congratulations to the couple. And they are so lucky to have a grannie who wants to babysit!

  8. Oh Judy . .what a wonderful post . .as marriage mentors . .I always feel such delight to know that a young couple can face another year of their marriage with the marriage intact.
    Oh .. and aren't you clever to invite little Maelyn over for a visit whilst they celebrate.

    Their wedding picture is lovely. Such a pretty bride and handsome groom with her.

  14. Oh Judy, I don't think there is anything that brings as much joy to a mother's heart than to see her children happily married !!
