Day 10 and Day 11 Photos of me

So I discovered the printer is only a printer and copier, not a scanner too.
Alas thank you Miss Mac I photo boothed my reallllllly old photos. Ta da!

I was hard pressed to even have any photos from 10 years ago. Like I said I was sixteen. The year I started seeing B. The year before we decided to start our family.

So here we are...

The year 2000 and 2001 because I couldn't find anything else.

I have no idea how they make me feel about myself now. I don't feel like I've changed all that much, you be the judge? Maybe my skin was better then...

I've taken one side by side and I'm in my after shower glamour pyjamas, have VERY unwaxed eyebrows, a pimple from eating chocolate on the weekend and I'm exhausted after pre-school swimming lessons and a generally long day of feeling like shit.

This photo was taken the night of a friends debutante ball, the night I kissed B for the first time. Naaaaaw. I think the only night I've ever stayed up all night.

Day 11
A recent photo of myself...
Changed much? I'm not sure. I asked B and he said "you were more carefree back then". I'll ponder that one for a while I think.
As I said in another post I think I look sad now. I don't want to appear that way to the world. I want to smile and feel joy and be carefree again. Although I think when you're left picking up the pieces of your life after your baby dies it's hard to go back.


  1. Look at you! You look very similar to the now photo, but yes a bigger smile.
    Maybe B means carefree as in there was not as much responsibility back then?
    I dunno, feel free to tell me to shaddup :D

  2. I like them all. You look lovely, but maybe it is the biased of the babylost. We never see the trauma on each other's babies, or in each other's faces. You look beautiful now and then.
