Compare and contrast:
The after beach look 1986. Matching t-shirts, wet hair, arms placed in exactly the same position.....

Fast forward 21 years.


(Please ignore small offspring in the background with fists clenched, saying " I will be in this photo whether you want me or not.")

Same girls, same place. Own personal styles have developed over the years. The need to dress the same has been forgotten (although coincidentally both girls have the same style beach bags). Wet hair is more or less the same, each girl strikes a pose in a way that is comfortable to her.
I wonder if we'll keep doing these photos until we're old and wrinkley?

  2. The beach photos... it's hard to imagine that 21 years have passed. You both look just about the same!

    Love the top you're wearing in the last photo, I hope you got the chance to wear it that night after all!

  3. I totally agree with Annika...one really has to look closer to see a difference. You could never say 21 years have passed.
    Poppy is precious in the shot.
    And I am sure you were able to sneak out. You HAVE to make the most of it when a friend like Celine is here!

  4. LOL, Poppy 'just having to be in the photo' sounds like my girls. I think the more I say "stay out of this shot" the harder they try to make their way in it. I think it's great how you have the older photos to compare with the newer ones. I would never have been able to tell that the first two shots were taken in the same location, unless you mentioned it.

  5. These pictures are adorable. There is nothing like having friends with whom you share a long history. I am still friends with my best friends from elementary school and we are in our 50's! PS You girls are gorgeous. How do you stay so skinny with all that fabulous Italian food and drink??????

  6. gen, I can answer that question: She lives in Positano, a town that consists entirely of staircases. Trust me, running up and down those steps all the time will make anyone lose weight!
