June 12th, 1995

It all started on the beach in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands

We got married….just the two of us….no friends and family…..I really do like things simple….especially the things that mean a lot.  I think a lot of girls get married because they want the big “show”…..I just wanted the man….

Wish I had more “vintage photos” to share with you, but I don’t have a scanner. It was such a beautiful day, but don’t let anybody kid you… was hot!

We spent our anniversary “tooling around” at Lake of the Ozarks…..we hadn’t been there long when  a monsoon hit….okay, so it wasn’t a monsoon, but it rained REALLY hard!  It rained so hard that we had to pull off the road.  The temperature went from a muggy 91 to a cool 74 in a matter of minutes.

Here we sit in the parking lot of JB Hooks  (no, it’s not a hooking store….it’s a restaurant)

Waiting for the rain to subside enough for us to make it inside to eat.

We eventually made it inside, but it just kept on raining…..of course I wanted to eat with a lake view, so my sweetie made my wish come true…..even in the rain…..we got to sit out on the covered deck….I love eating outside, seems like the food just tastes better.

No, those aren’t hotels….those are summer homes…

After lunch we headed to the Marshall’s Mega Store…..OMG! I will share what I bought tomorrow….Kenny thought he was going to have to drag me out of that place!

  9. Happy day Tammy! Love the pic. of you and Kenny. At first I thought it was a picture of Jessica Lange and some guy (no kidding) it's gorgeous. Thanks so much for directing me to the fox posting. I just loved it!

  10. Tammy,
    Hope your 15th anniversary was wonderful. I love the photo of you and Kenny. Like you, I chose to have very small ceremonies for both my weddings. Even combined, my married life never made it to 15 years.
    Thanks for taking the time to let us have these little glimpses into your life. You and Kenny are a blessed couple.

    May peace and happiness go with you into the coming years,

  11. Love your photos Tammy the are priceless. Hope you both are enjoying a very special anniversary!
    Best Wishes,
