Me just hanging out July 2014

I went with number 1.  There’s a photo of me about 10 years ago.  I had just finished a 4 week training class to become a Customer Service Technician Rep at Dish Network.  We had a party that day, which is where the lei came from that’s around my neck.  This photo was taken in June.  The next photo is from 2014.  A lot has changed.  I no longer own the Sunbird.  My eyering is gone, although I have considered having it redone.  I no longer work for Dish Network.  I suppose I look younger.  I have had another daughter since the past picture.  So now I’m a mother of 2 girls.  I think I knew more 10 years ago then I know now.  Don’t we all?

    We definitely all think we know more when we’re younger. That’s the truth. You’re beautiful in both photos!

    1. Thank you much! Yeah, I am starting to believe that’s a universal thing about knowledge.

  2. I think I was definitely more relaxed 10 years ago!

    1. I was too. Now I’m almost turning into a worrier, which is out of character for me.
