25 Years Later

Metamorphosis Monday is brought to you by Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ For today, I will try something different. Instead of showing you how I changed a room at home, I will show you how me and my classmates from College have changed in 25 years.
Below you will see a picture of me and my 2 classmates from College, Gatchie and Elsie. We were bridesmaids at another classmate, Lyla's wedding.
25 years later, Lyla contacted all of us because she and her hubby were renewing their wedding vows and will have a ceremony and they wanted all the original wedding attendants to be in the wedding rites again. Naturally, we all gladly obliged. She told us to just wear any pink outfits (Hmmm, I should have thought about this for Pink Saturday:-)) And here we are, the 3 bridesmaids, except now I am in the center and yes, 25 years older.
This is the picture of the original wedding entourage. Can you spot me?
And this is a picture when vows were renewed. It was so much fun trying to figure out who is who. The biggest apparent change, of course, were the flower girl and ring bearer since 25 years later, they were grown up and were already married. They are not in this picture.
I hope you enjoyed how we aged. I am not sure I did. LOL!
Thanks Susan, for hosting MM!
