A Year's Difference

Oh, the difference a year can make. I was looking through old photos, and here's one of me this week last year. I remember the waddle, carrying one baby awkwardly around the bump that another created, and that old table. A lot changes in a year, doesn't it?


And a self portrait from a year later...


And how could I forget my little sunshine, that baby that was taking up my entire abdomen? How did life happen without her?


Whew, it is crazy and amazing what time brings. I'm feeling stilled and awe-struck by it all. Just one year! What a magnificent journey.

How sweet to look back. I love your today's green shirt with the yellow daffodils close by. Maybe you should carry a yellow posy!

I agree with Margo about the green shirt...can't wait to find out where you got it. I remember that belly because we moved about a year and three weeks ago. Crazy how this past year has flown by.

Fun post! These days I look like you did last year and I'm having fun dreaming about what life will look like next year (and all the time in between)!

You all are too sweet! Thank you for the compliments on the shirt... you know me, it's a thrift purchase, of course. Christian, isn't it amazing to be right on the cusp of something so amazing? I can't wait to see your pictures and hear your stories in a year!
