25th Anniversary Calligraphy Flourish Friday

©Jane Farr Calligraphy & Design LLC

Tom and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on Tuesday. Woohoo!!
This is a snippet from a sample piece I did last year using our wedding information.

We snuck off to the mountains this week in order to celebrate. 
Fall is our favorite season, and that's why we decided to marry in October.  We enjoyed a few days in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Tennessee hiking, relaxing and of course eating! :)

Wow...Time certainly does fly.
That was then.
(I assure you that puffy sleeves were quite fashionable in 1985!)

This is now.
I am filled with gratitude knowing what a gift God has given me in Tom.
My mom always told me, "Jane Ann, you got a good one."  (I think she was afraid I might blow it!)

The past 25 years have been filled with both blessing and heartache, and I wouldn't want to face the next 25 years without Tom by my side.

He adds the laughter and flourish to my daily life.

Wishing you all a great weekend!


  1. Happy anniversary, and congratulations, Jane!

  2. Congratulations on 25 years! That is a blessing!

    The church you were married in looks so much like the church I grew up in. Funny.

    And, yes, I remember the poofy sleeves from the '80s.

  3. Tom got a good one too. Happy Anniversary to you both! And that beautiful smile is always fashionable.

  4. So sweet! You two haven't changed much at all!

  5. Jane,

    Happy anniversary to you and Tom. I love it when I know of couples who are still happily married for 25 or more years. It's such a rarity in our society today, and it's a great example of what God can do. I love the piece you did. It looks so sparkily. Is that ink you used or gold leaf???? Linda E.

  6. Congratulations for 25 glorious years of wedded bliss my friend. That is quite an accomplishment...
    I hope you and Tom are enjoying the little bit of heavenly getaway to celebrate. Enjoy! You both deserve it.

  7. Congratulations, Jane! You are such a lovely couple.

    Oh, yes, I had the puffy sleeves in the 80s as well! ;0
