Then and Now

Same location (bridge at Sundance), same couple, same month (July), many differences. Can you spot the changes?

THEN (JULY 2005)


NOW (JULY 2008)

THEN (Julu 2005): both fake-and-baked, Britt was a blond, Aaron had scruff, Aaron had wild hair, Aaron was lighter, Britt was heavier, we rock climbed outside at least twice a week, had no responsibilities, favorite activity: spending time together... and actually, we weren't even married yet! (it's an engagement picture)

NOW (July 2008): almost 3 years of marriage expertise under our belts, both white and pasty,Britt's hair is (almost) au naturelle (cheaper), Aaron's hair is... uhhh... gone (by choice, not by genetics - its cheaper too because Britt does it), Aaron is always Cougar-clean shaven, Aaron is heavier, Britt is lighter, we rock climb outside twice a month (if we're lucky), we have lots of responsibilities, favorite activity: still spending time together, we're at least 3 years happier, have 1 baby Emery and a partridge in a pear tree.

I like this post - very fun. And I think you look great with dark hair. Also, I can't believe how different Aaron's hair looks; I'd forgotten it was so much longer then.

Great idea for a post! We think you are a lot of fun and can't wait for you to come back to Provo. Alisa misses her buddy.

Both very cute pictures! It's so fun to compare things like that, since so much has changed... even it was only 3 years ago! Yes, it is a great idea for a post... I hope you don't mind if you see a similar post like this on my page in the future!

You know, just the other day I was thinking about you and how you used to have blonde hair, and it was so funny because I could hardly make the image in my mind of what you used to look like. I'd say the best difference of all between the two pictures is Emery. Aaron seems to look even happier now, too. He must love his girls a lot. :) hehe

I should do the same post; that new pic of us all on the fence and my grandparents house has also been the place for a picture of just me and Jeff. I'm totally going to copy you.

I love that you admit you are fake and baked- you look great in both pictures. I will have to post more photos of Danielle- it will take a while.

Isn't it crazy how time flies? I like the old picture and the new! It's so weird to remember life as as an engaged couple or newlyweds. I was looking at honeymoon pictures while I was 9 months pregnant-wearing kurts clothes with a breathe-right strip on my nose-not cute. I was insisting he look at a certain picture, "Look at this! Look at me now!" He couldn't help but laugh.

I didn't know you guys back then, but I sure think you are a cute little family now! You all look great, and very happy!
