Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I thought it would be fun to do a then and now post to take a little trip down memory lane, whaddya say? I did a similar post for Weddingbee a few years back!

Now: Brooke's in High School and this year she went to Homecoming! She's so beautiful and so grown up! Proud moment!

Now: I go to CrossFit every weekend and I don't miss running at all! I love my new workout routine. It's a lot of fun and I'm so that happy it's something I can share with Aaron as well.

Then: Wearing braces - yikes! I remember the day I got them; it was awful, but I smiled and sent this pic to my mom and dad, brother and grandmother.

Now: I'm so much more confident in my smile - yay! The six months I wore braces went by really fast and it was definitely worth it!

Now: Not much has changed! I'm still eating huge salads for lunch, styling them, and taking pics! My archive of these kinds of photos is ridiculous!

Then: This was back in 2002, I think. I was goofing around with my best friend, Ghadeer at my mom's house in Shenandoah.

Then: A real throwback!! I was a huge Lady Vols fan as a kid. My dad and grandmother are die-hard Tennessee fans and obviously, Tennessee costumes were totally appropriate around Christmas!

Now: Not much has changed - I'm still a big Tennessee fan and rep the orange and white whenever I can!

Do you ever look back at old photos or think back to how things used to be?

What are some things that have changed for you? What's stayed the same?
