Wordless Wednesday: Then & Now

by melissa on September 29, 2010 · 44 comments

Tomorrow, Daddy Roo will celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.

So I thought it was only fitting that I dig up a picture of us during our dating years…

Circa 1995ish…

And 15 years later (10 of that married)…

More anniversary talk tomorrow…

Love it. Y’all are adorable.

Scars and less hair and mom hair, I bet you two are more beautiful to each other now than you were 15 years ago. Happy Anniversary!

4 melissa September 29, 2010 at 9:09 pm

I was thinking about you yesterday, blog buddy!

You’re so right 15 years and more beautiful than ever!

I love it! And to be honest, you don’t really look all that different. I have to admit, I have some similar pictures with long (permed, in my case) hair and some furry caterpillars on top of my eyes. It actually makes me appreciate my aged look all the more!

Happy Anniversary! (2000 must have been a good year for weddings!)

Come on— surely my eyebrows look better now?! :-)

Yes, 2000 was the magic year of anniversaries.

I love all your comments on the pictures. Happy Anniversary!

9 Roy Scribner September 29, 2010 at 11:05 am

Congratulations, you two! I hope you get to go do something special, this weekend!

We’re going to Asheville, NC. A little trip to the Biltmore and a nice hike nearby, of course!

11 Melisa September 29, 2010 at 11:40 am

Happy Anniversary! You guys are adorable…now I see where the boys get it.

I think I have an old school picture from 2000 as well, only it was the year I met my husband. My comments would be more along the lines of…look how thin I was.

You rock – what a great idea to share these pics! Would you believe the hubs & I are about to reach 21 years together (college sweethearts), 9 of them married? Now wouldn’t that “then” photo be hilarious! :)

I love these photos, especially the current day photo. You two look just as happy and in love. It’s amazing how our love for our spouses shifts and changes as our family expands. The love is still there and it’s still strong. Happy anniversary!
Thanks for stopping by and linking up. Have a great day.

It is amazing isn’t it? We know so little in those “early days” of love… enough I guess to know to stick with that person though huh?

22 Dumb Mom September 29, 2010 at 2:59 pm

Cute! Love your then and now idea. So fun. And smart. Why do you come by my place again?!

Love the side by side comparison along with all the squiggly notes.

I must say hoorayyy for the French references “sans” and congratulations on a lasting marriage. Please let us know what you do for your anniversary. How exciting!

29 melissa September 29, 2010 at 9:41 pm

We’re headed to Asheville, NC for the weekend. Gonna visit the Biltmore Estate and some other things.

And yes, I use sans a lot for some reason! :-)

Definitely. It’s like we crossed into a realm of “older people” or something. Congrats on yours too– woohoo for weddings in 2000!

35 Sue Robinson September 30, 2010 at 12:45 am

LOVE this! I should do this to show you how different I am now! Ha! I love old time pictures, so fun to look back.

36 MonicaFernaays September 30, 2010 at 7:21 am

I really love how you shared a before photo, and and current photo! I just love your humor too! We once discussed things we had in common, I can add a few more to the list!! Married in the fall, c-section scar…first baby ~ Dog!!

Thanks for stopping by Organzied Chaos! If you really like pumpkin (as I do), I would add a little more pumpkin spice to the cookies, just a little! Also, I am making another receipe this weekend with pumpkin…they’re called Pilgram Pies…imagine a chocolate whoopie pie, and then change the flavors to pumpkin with cream cheese filling!! I’ll share next week, I promise!!
