Four years ago

Hubs has the camera in Kansas this week. Otherwise, I would be showing you pictures of our apartment. The boxes that are piled up in every open spaced. The table, which is full of items for the party. The preparations I have already made for the party. And, the shattered glass all over my kitchen that my brother broke when trying to pour a glass of water.

Instead, I am pulling out an old picture that I came across as I was cleaning off the pictures from my computer and putting them on disks. I'm not sure why I enjoy putting gross pictures of myself on the internet, but there is some sort of draw to this sort of humiliation that I cannot control.

This picture was taken in August of 2005. We were a newly engaged couple and had just attended Richard's White Coat ceremony, which marks the beginning of dental school. Compare this to the picture that was taken a few weeks back at the Professional's Day ceremony and I think we have come a long ways in four years.

Yes, it seems we have improved ourselves at least a tad bit in the past four years. But, back to the old picture.

I have to believe that it was a very humid afternoon because I am very sure I would not leave the house with my bangs looking like that. That dress also did nothing for my figure. Where is my waist? And last, but not least, if this is August, why in the world do I look so ghostly white?

The one thing this picture has going for it that it not true today...clear skin. I'd love to know what happened to that clear skin over the past 4 years.

Heather - you are WAY to hard on yourself. The pics are great and what a 4 years. Continue to capture the memories the Lord allows you and make the most of them.
Love- Joan

There is so much to say about that change, I didn't have enough room on my blog :)

do you ever wonder if the change in your skin has to do with added, subconscious stress in your life? just thought about that... the one time i started to break out was when i first started BC. i had to change it up and now i'm off it. those are my only two thoughts! =)

almost done with haberfeld! woo hoo! hawaii is waiting for you...
