As Tammy and Chuy Macias celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary with family and friends this weekend, they reflect on their memories and this milestone in their lives.

The couple grew up in Chula Vista and raised daughters, Sierra and Katelynn, in Canyon Lake where they have lived for more than 12 years. The couple says they have been blessed with many fond memories of Canyon Lake, where their faith grew stronger at Canyon Lake Community Church and Tammy met amazing friends in Priscilla Circle.

Tammy and Chuy say they live by words of wisdom they were given 25 years ago. “We were told to be patient with one another, never go to bed angry, the wife is always right, pray often, love each other, and live, laugh and love,” said Tammy. “We also say, ‘home is where the heart is’, as this saying has carried us through in comfort when Sierra got married and moved to South Carolina. Our home may be split here and there but we carry our home in our hearts.”

The house in Canyon Lake that the Macias family calls home is being sold and the couple is uncertain where they will be living next. “Chuy and I don’t know at this time where our next home will be or which neighborhood we will start new memories, but we know that this weekend we celebrate a special day we celebrated 25 years ago when I married my best friend,” said Tammy.
