Same Spot, Similar Pose, 13 Years Later, and Add 50 Pounds

One of the most exciting parts of our trip to New York back in May was locating a special spot in Central Park.  When we first visited NYC together 13 years ago, we posed in Central Park for a picture.  Although we were barely "dating" then, it became a symbol of our friendship and our falling in love, and we ended up using it as our engagement photo. We were excited to find the spot easily during our most recent visit.

We haven't changed a bit, have we?

In the '97 picture you look like two nerdy BYU Mormons. In the latest picture you look like you've gained some style and lost your Mormon persona.

Jordan-LOL. Keep in mind it was the mid 90's... that's how folks dressed in the 90's.

No that's how folks dressed at BYU in the 90s.

Now that I've stopped laughing enough from J's comments to type, isn't that the spot where the bad guys got covered with bird seed and attacked by pigeons in Home Alone II? Or is it the spot where they found the body in the opening of Law and Order season 13, episode 6? Maybe both? Regardless, you both look great in both photos. And no, you haven't changed a bit. M still looks 16 and G just a shade older.

That's awesome Michelle. You two have barely changed in 13 years. When I look back at our picks from our BYU days I have the same "man I was a nerd" feeling as described in the earlier comment.

I LOVE Saj.-sibling banter more than nearly anything else in the world...

About the post--you guys don't look that nerdy to me in photo #1 BUT, the day I saw you walking along a BYU walking path by the WILK with matching hiking boots, matching jeans, matching navy blue hoodies (that zipped in the front), and coordinating North Face backpacks holding hands sealed the nerd deal. Sorry guys, I may not have a picture to prove it but I caught you red-handed being super nerds! At least you found each other, LOL!

haha I think Myndi is actually the most correct of them all - maybe someday we could recreate the whole entire trip (but without all the sexual angst involved in the first trip around that town :-) ps thanks for sept btw - marc is excited and greg will make a better date then I ever would
